So A Girl Walks Into Home Goods.....

Saturday, December 7, 2013

After a one month self-imposed ban.  And she's only looking for one thing. Well, two really: two snow globes, for her kids, to add to the collection started when the first was a baby and added to each year at Christmas. 

And she finds them:

But does she stop there, go to the register, check out, and leave?
Of course not.

And look what she finds:

Just to name a few.

But it is this treasure, this masterpiece, that she has been missing all her life:

Will it fit in her house? It looks to be about 12 feet tall, but it can't be, right? It will definitely fit somewhere, right? And she's in love, so she should grab it! She'll regret it if she doesn't find a way.

So she stares at it for about 1/2 an hour. Just stands there and stares, thinking.

And she finally does the right thing, and walks away.

Unfortunately, though, on her way to the checkout (well, not on most people's way, but on HER way because she took the long route), she passes the china.  And it's well-documented that she has an obsession with dinnerware, and has too much to fit in her cabinets.

And she sees these, for $8 a setting:

And they would go so well in her dining room! 

And they do.

And although she dreams of the other goodies she saw, she counts her blessings, and is happy.
The end.

The two snow globes you chose are so adorable and I can see why it took so long to get to the pay desk!

Home Goods (love that store) should TOTALLY be paying you for such great advertising. What is wrong with them? ;)

Love your blog, you are very funny and have wonderful taste. I too have a dish obsession 2 sets of china for 20, Christmas Spode for 16, sets for Valentine's day, St Patrick's Day, Easter, 3 sets of everyday, a collection of Evesham, and living in Salem a Halloween service for 40. When we redid the kitchen and spruced up the rest of our beach house last year HG shopping was my job and the HG locator along with my GPS were my best friends. From Southern NH to Braintree I shopped them all. I have to know which HG this is, it has soooo many good things. I have been to the three big ones on the North Shore and was so disappointed in the Christmas and dish selections. Please share...
