On Thursday mornings, my boys attend a special "help" class which is actually a "help" for this home schooling Mom! I usually have about 1 hour and 15 minutes to run errands while they are in class, and I usually run over to Michaels to pick up art supplies...it's close by. But, I didn't really need any supplies. Although I have some self-imposed deadlines for finishing and starting portraits, I thought I would run into TJ Maxx, "just to look"!
I had literally "run" through this store a few Thursdays earlier after a Michael's errand and thought it would be nice to take a little more time to browse, because it is a HUGE store!
Well, it's a good thing I don't get out much!!! I had to make some quick decisions because of the time frame and I guess I didn't realize how much I missed seeing home accessories.
Before we moved, I worked part-time at a home accessories/furniture shop where the owner was kind enough to let me sell my creations. I loved decorating with ALL the goodies that would come into the store. Ahhhhhhh.....~****~......~****~.......
*Dream Sequence*Anyway, back to TJ Maxx.....the last time I was there, I only had time to browse through all the lotions. But today, I went straight to the home accessories and found this perfect little pear. Oh, there were LOTS of other goodies, but I needed this sweet pear for my desk!
I walked out into the aisle, pear in hand, and saw the linen section of the store!! Last years, "spring/summer" quilt has seen too many washings and, well, I found this sweet quilt!...on Sale!!
I then saw a lady looking through large hanging rugs, thinking......., "that would be nice, since we put our wood floor in last year, we haven't had a new rug for it, just the old one, hmmmmm????"
So, I went over to look and actually found a salesperson to help me take down this rug I brought home!
Because theses purchases were quick decisions, I was prepared to not like them when I got home, but,...... I think I might just keep them!....and next Thursday, I think it might be safer to run my errand to Michael's!
