Sniff, Sniff

On Wednesday I was changing up some of the decor in my kitchen.

That sounds nice, doesn’t it?

All I was really doing was putting out a table runner (Ikea – $4.99. Woot!!) and changing the filler in my big vase-candle-holder-thing.

All was going well but suddenly disaster struck.

That, my friends, is a piece of glass.


It belongs to this:

Waaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!! This big vase-thing was a clearance find from Walmart (who knew?) for a whopping $5. It has lived with us for the past year and has been well-loved and well-used.

It will be sorely missed.

Here’s a closer view of the damage:

Last month I saw one at kohl’s – not exactly the same – and it was on clearance for $8. I thought about getting it because it was so pretty and such a great price. But I thought, “No, Christa, you already have one…no need to get another.”

Boo. Boo on me. I checked to see if they had any lurking in their clearance department. But all I found was this:

Super pretty, but the little one is $45 at the moment. Not really a steal.

Oh well…I’ll keep my eyes out for something to replace my fabulous vase.

R.I.P. little vase. You brought happiness and beauty to my home but now you rest in a better place.

Well, not better…just different.


Have a fabulous weekend and don’t break any of your beloved decor items like I did. 🙂
