Today I had to go to Walmart as my daughter needed film for her photography class. I hate Walmart. Sorry...for those of you who swear by it...but I can count on ONE HAND how many times a year I go there. Target is my go to place.
As we are approaching the doors we see this
I was pretty sure this little sweetie was going to end up in my car. Two young guys were selling them for $50.00. They are part pit bull. Who cares if it grows up to rip me apart...I really wanted one!
My daughter picked one up...I knew better than to do that. I felt so awful for them. I kept saying out loud...we have to walk away! My daughter did her BEST job of begging throughout the store but I held firm. When we came out they were gone. Sad to think of what will happen to these little guys. Probably end up at the animal shelter.
We were in the store maybe 10 minutes...I swung by the magazine section and I found this
I was so curious to see this...to see if it was worth the money. I've pretty much stopped buying magazines now that I read so many blogs. All my favorites are gone anyway. This one did NOT disappoint! I'm VERY choosy when it comes to magazines.....and I was going to buy this one no matter what...just to do my own little critique...and WOW. I'm savoring every page...every article....every photo....but I did find this and had to laugh...
Two years ago I found this:
So yesterday I cleaned off my dining room buffet.....shopped the house for all things cream and white.....and came up with this
I wanted some height on those crackled pointy things....and couldn't find ANYTHING to lift them up. Then I remembered all the books I disassembled when I hosted the Winter White Fat Book swap....all of these were in a bag in my basement. It worked perfectly! I didn't want anything with color to compete with the white/cream theme I was doing so I was happy I'd saved these. I left them as they were...ripped spine and all.
I turn them on at night....and it's just beautiful.. Not like having Christmas all year or anything...but just enough sparkle.
I found this glass house at a flea market at the beach last year....$5.00. It's been sitting on top of my armoire for a year gathering dust. It's about time I take it down so I can see it. The fake flowers are the ones I got a few weeks ago to embellish a tshirt with eventually. I'm glad I didn't cut them off yet!
The metal stand was a thrift store find a few years ago. It's so big for the table...I bought it with the intention of selling it some day....
And the flowers....I made from tissue paper a few years ago and just rediscovered them packed away. I guess I'm anticipating Springs arrival...even though there's still about 10 inches of snow on the ground...but it's melting every day.
Have a terrific week!
