We were at Ikea this week and I saw something I wanted so badly, I couldn't wait until we got to the right department.
Yes, it was a set of beautiful art cards of Swedish cities. Aren't they great? Sadly, when we got to the art and frame section, we couldn't find them and the floor clerk had no idea what we were talking about. I'm tempted to drag myself out to the Etobicoke location tomorrow so that I can have what my heart desires. They are sold in a set of five for $4.99. Good, arty VFM (value for money) if you ask me.
My urge to thrift had to wait this week. I can't even begin to describe how chaotic the week at my school was, so I won't even start. I took Duncan to the Science Centre today and I thought that we'd pop by the Thorncliffe Goodwill on the way home. They had had one of those 50% off sales yesterday and there was barely anything on the shelves today. I did spy the small sized Autumn Harvest Pyrex bowl, which I have already and I don't especially like. That was it. I saw some guy buying it when I was in the checkout.
I did find the pretty piece of pink pottery that you see above. I think I was charged $1.49. The woman who rang me up seems to be a hard worker who isn't a pricing dictator, so she tends to price down if the goods don't have price stickers on them. Thanks.
Lastly, I'd just like to say that every day this week, I've taken off my winter boots to discover that I've got another hole in another pair of socks. This has happened with new and old socks. I even cut my toenails and I still managed to get holes. What's going on? I'm starting to think there's some sort of sock conspiracy going on. Better call Jesse Ventura.
Welcome new followers, by the way. Thanks for joining in on the insanity. And to Sir Thrift-A-Lot, that wasn't me peeling stickers off Pyrex. I should have been so lucky finding any Pyrex this week. I'm usually the woman dragging a dirty blonde five-year-old boy around who's almost as tall as me. LOL.
