I can't help but think of that scene from Dirty Dancing, when Jennifer Gray walks into the dance hall awkwardly carrying a watermelon, and everyone looks at her like she is a freak. That is how I felt yesterday when I walked across the parking lot of TJ Maxx balancing this crazy cage on my buggy.You can only imagine the looks I received as I wheeled this strange
I have to admit, it is big, and strange, but isn't it cool? I found the birdcage on the last aisle of the store...you know the aisle I'm talking about...the one with all the random red sticker items that no one wants. Well, that's where I found this beauty. I was so excited to find this, especially since I let that vintage birdcage get away at the Goodwill a few weeks back.
Also on this aisle were these two glass bell cloches. I am still left wondering why these were on clearance? Hmmm...oh well! Score!
The green color of the birdcage also inspired me to add another pop of green with this pretty, down-filled lumbar pillow. My husband has threatened to divorce me if I bring one more pillow into our house, but this one was such a pretty shade of apple I just couldn't resist! Maybe he won't notice...hahaha...good one, Aarynn.
I ended my shopping trip with one functional item - this adorable wire egg basket lined with a linen fabric. Perfect for stashing MW's toys that clutter up the dining room.
So, TJ Maxx, you continue to have my heart! I can't wait to check back in a few weeks to see what else you have in store. In the meantime, here is a little afternoon entertainment for ya...(insert my face in place of Jennifer's)
