First find: Leslie finally found a plant that shares her name. She's always been bent out of shape that so many plants and flowers double as women's names but not her own. (Rose, Lily, Daisy, Heather, Iris, Violette, Fern, Laurel, etc.) At long, long, long last there is a Leslie plant:
Second thing, a felt heart garland that is ten times prettier than my own (remember my heart garland?):
I love the lace and the way some of them are off-kilter. Thanks for making feel like mine's crap, Terrain. By the way, guess how much that garland is? Guess. Guess!
Twenty eight dollars.
YES, I am serious.
Leslie liked these postcards and tags:
So pretty, especially that card.
Ok, ready to GHMTI? First, the card. Ready?
Six dollars. For ONE. (Yes, it IS made out of paper.)
And those pretty tags with the felt hearts (on the right)? Guess.
Eighteen dollars for twelve. That's $1.50 a piece. They're also made mostly of paper.
What? You thought they were made of gold? Silly. They're only paper.
(But, I love them all and if I hit the lottery, I would buy them all and not care.)
|I would also buy myself 500 of these heart hangers with my lottery winnings and not care.|
Me: "Yeah: They're $500."
Leslie: "No, seriously. I like them."
Me: [stabbing at the little tiny price tag on the box] "THEY'RE FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS. ok, $479. Like there's a difference."
Leslie: "That's hilarious. How stupid do they think we are?"
Pretty stupid, I guess.
Then again, I'm the one who's going to spend hundreds of dollars their on paper items if I hit the lottery tomorrow.
Green and red season is over, but pink and red season is here.
I love it.
