Today I went to Hobby Lobby. I love that store. My bank account, however, does not. Today though, I was happy AND my bank account was happy! How you ask. 80% off sale. Oh yeah! The Valentine's Day stuff was practically being given away so I got stuff to make a mantle. Isn't it cute!
I love this little guy. I've decided that I have a thing for owls. Remember my my Halloween mantle. It had an owl too. I even picked out a precious poster with lots of owls. Anyway, this owl, at 80% off was $1.40! I mean, look at him, he needed to come with me. He also begged for a name, so I am calling him Charles-Winston. He looks like a Charles-Winston, don't you think?
On another decorating note, I am angry at two walls. That's normal right, to be angry at large stationary objects? I have one wall in my kitchen and the other side of the same wall that is in the living room. They desperately need "something", but I am having a hard time finding what that "thing" is. I have these posters (below) on the wall now and they looked great against the old red walls, but they just blend right into the paint. I have several old school movie posters that I could hang. I already have two framed, but I don't know, I cant decide if they will look right. I think I would get different frames and paint them that shade of blue green that I love so much. The other wall is sooooo long. It just stretches all the way down the hallway and there is nothing there. I want something with color because our house is very neutral, but I want something with personality. That is the perfect wall for a landscape, but it just seems very generic. I want something a little more personal, something that reflects my style more. Thoughts? Offer to come and just make it more decorated? Anyone, anyone, no? Sad.
