You know when you are out shopping and you find something so incredible that you can’t believe your eyes? You think that you are being “punked” because this item is so amazing and the price is so low you think it must be a joke. This happened to me over Thanksgiving when I was in Dallas. I was at Wisteria (a must see if you are ever in Dallas) and stumbled upon this light that I could not believe was sitting there all by its lonesome. I looked at the price tag and saw a great big red slash with 75% off written across it. I started looking around to see if anyone else noticed this prize. I was sure someone was going to jump out from behind the display shelves and yell “Ah Ha – just what I have been looking for … get out of my way girl -this prize is MINE!!” I picked it up (gave it a quick hug) and took it over to the check out counter. Trying to be all casual – you don’t want to give away your hand here – I asked if the price was correct on this light.
Guess what she said …. I will give you a hint … I was jumping up and down and running in circles. ”It’s Mine – It’s Mine!” Yep – the price was correct. This little light just happened to be the only one left in the store – in retail terms, that makes it a “reject”. You know what was also almost rejected – ME – when I brought this light home to my sister-in-laws and told the Hubs that he needed to fit it into the car for our 12 hour drive home. We had to ship boxes of clothes home to get this baby in the car and it was worth it.
Dying to see what I picked up? First I have to show you what it replaced:
Oh you sad sad little ugly white fan – you are being replaced by a better model. I must say that I am not sad to see you go. You have done your duty and need to be buried in the 80′s ceiling fan cemetery. Buh Bye!
I don’t even think this picture could begin to show you how amazing this light is … it’s the coolest green verdigre and metal and huge.
The wall looks like a funny color green, but trust me it matches my new light perfectly. Even the Hubs knows it is awesome!
Here is a close up of the color. Do you want to just hug it cuz it is so cool? Oh – maybe I am the only one who hugs my stuff. Guess how much I paid for my prize …. $53.00!!!! Now do you want to hug it?
Have you ever found something that made you over the moon happy? This is just one little change I have made in my office recently. I can’t wait to show you what else I have done … rug, drapes, wire baskets … that a hint!
Hope your life is more awesome purchase heaven than white ceiling fan havoc!
