Hobby Lobby How I Love You So...

First let me say...if you do not have a Hobby Lobby near you... I apologize, for it is the single-most-satisfying-shopping-experience-this-girl-has-ever-had-bar-none!  It is that amazing! I console myself that while I have HL right down the road, Arizona does not have Christmas Tree Shops...which make me envious. of those states with these fabulous stores.

   I guess we will hope  pray that Christmas Tree Shops come to Arizona and you get Hobby Lobby in your  neck of the woods.

I had a $50.00 gift card from Christmas burning a hole in my wallet. I just needed some Retail Therapy.

I have been inspired by Mandi to try my hand at a few new creations, but that will have to wait a few more months.  Instead I picked up a couple of items to decorate and inspire me.

Caution...drool fest!

All of these items were 50% off ( I love that they have 50% off sales every week on select items. ) This week...Wall Decor and resin pieces were showcased.
My heart skipped a beat...I have been looking for one of these fleur de lis to put in this very spot.  This would be the amazing four pane window with a missing pane that I found at THAT amazing Church Rummage Sale...

Then I spied this...only one left.  I clutched it close and started dreaming where I would put it.

As I walked down the aisles in awe and amazement, I spied this beauty.  Ooh La La!  I must have it.

And this one as well that was right next to it.

I might have bought more if they would have had a few others, but how many crowns does a Queen need?
Answer: As many as she wants!
My total on this trip. $23.47!

Forgive the pictures, I had to take them with the camera phone, Fly Guy has my camera on a Fishing Trip.  He is going to start a blog about...FISHING and Cigars.  Uh...yeah.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments about my Aunts place.  I just love her use for everything and the way she makes it come together effortlessly. I am feeling better so I will be headed up there this weekend to help with my cousins wedding preparations.  Only two weeks until the big day!

A biento!
