Okay...maybe it is me, or maybe it is just where I live, but today was spent in pensive thought about my latest POOPIE mistakes and trying to rectify the situation. My husband and I took yet another trip to Maryland, and my biggest thing I wanted to do was to hit the Dollar Tree in Hagerstown...since I have seen so many people posting of such wonderful finds they have bought there, I thought I would try, too! Well, I hate to say they lie, but between posts of wonderful things they SAY they find there, and what was there for ME to see, was all too disappointing! Is it just ME? Is it just I have NO LUCK in finding the really neat stuff like everyone else does?
It is the same thing with GoodWill...I rarely find anything like the wonderful goodies I see other people post about! Someone once posted about these pillows that were from Target, and only $4.00 each...they had an ENTIRE bed-ful of beautiful pillows! The things I see at My Local Goodwill has got to be the saddest things I ever saw, and 9 out of 10 times I think should be put on a huge bonfire, along with some other things I can't even Imagine bringing home, or my husband would have my butt in the Looney Bin!
I have found odd ball things at odd ball places, and every once in awhile I find a great thing at a great price, but for the most part I seem to not have the luck that others have, when it comes to stumbling across a great deal!
Big Lots...well, I have about a THOUSAND words for that store, but CHEAP is NOT it! I don't know WHO this Jennifer Farrell is, nor do I care for this line at Big Lots. A few pieces I think I could live with, but everything I have picked up is just not priced for my budget, and for the most part, I think overpriced for Big Lots. I found some great Pumpkins there the other day! They looked like some others that I had bought a few days before at WallyWorld, but guess what? The price was MORE than WallyWorld, and I just couldn't bear to pay that price, so I put them back!
Today, I went to a favorite place of mine, in search of the PERFECT real looking fake plants. I found NOTHING...and this place never disappoints me, but today, I was beyond disappointed! So onward! I will find something, if it is to be found! I know in my storage bins, I have a ton of stuff, leftover from crafts, so I will have to tear it all up and look to see what I can put together, and get on the FASHIONABLE list, once again! I definitely have been taking away some IVY...maybe I should have a giveaway?
Well, I am tired, so I am going to bed, and dream of all those wonderful things that I would like to have in my home...things I love, things that comfort, and things that bring a smile.
Till Another Time!
