HOMESENSE HOW I ADORE THEE - my new birdcage and painted mirror
Last visit to Homesense happened to be a quick
stop while we were on a peaceful drive to get away
from the hustle and bustle of life and work. As both
George and I work at home a great deal in the
we just take off for a quiet
and enjoy an ice cappuchino from Tim Hortons.
Recently I had mentioned out loud wanting a bird
cage. I had really wanted one for a long time but
never mentioned it. With my retail job I've been all
over the Fraser Valley as well as different
through out the country and really just never see them.
Well during this last stop at
together close to closing time, George would pop
in and out of the isles showing me
things he saw.
Then just as we rounding the final
lap to the finish
line he popped into the isle again this time with a
beautiful white birdcage in hand.
I gasped and immediately said
"I WANT IT!"
Then common sense took over and I asked
Turned out to be $40, come on!
Well I still wanted it.
While this whole thought process was going on
George popped in with another bird house of a
different color and style. Now I was even more
excited at options. Be careful what you wish for.
Before the whole thing was done we musta found
close to a dozen different styles, sizes and colors.
And different prices.
Including this pretty
pretty turquoise one and it was only $15
*** SOLD ***
Another find that evening was this great
*FLYING THE WORLD*
We also got our large oval clock that you've seen in the
and a few book boxes at Homesense.
Before I go I want to share with you some encouragement I received from
AMY from MAISON DECOR
She painted her beautiful mirror frame
encouraged me w
hen I told her I didn't quite have
the nerve to do mine.
Well I was finally able to find a bit of time Mother's
morning and went for it. Happy Mother's day to me.
Mine's blue, it's bold, it's finished, and it's brilliant.
Did you notice it also matches the bird cage?
