Yesterday we had an hour to kill before our appointment to have our taxes done. I convinced my dear husband to take me to Joanne's. He does not really like to take me there. ? I can't imagine why not.
He probably felt like he owed me considering all the loving care, snow shoveling, and roof ice removal that I have had to do for the past month.
He would be correct.
So he took me there with no hassle. He sat in the car while I went in to shop.
I came across a shelf with a big 70% off sign. The squeal of my cart tires could be heard at the opposite end of the store.
I have been admiring these red and aqua orbs for some time, but at $10 each, I decided to admire them from afar.
My mind did a quick calculation--70% off of $10 is 3 bucks. YES! Into my cart they went.I spent another five seconds wondering if I should also grab the 4 gold-colored orbs they had and the cute oriental rust female bust that is actually a flower vase. I mean, really, how cool is that?
Well, I am sure you won't be surprised that I bought them all. One never knows when a gold orb will be just what is needed. Until then I have placed them on my these shelves. I can't wait to do an oriental tablescape so I can use the bust with one big canna in it. Just adding this little $2 orb to this vase display really lightens up the display, don't you think?
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
