I've become a junkie

With the delight many folks reserve for things like Disney Land/World or Christmas morning, I visit furniture stores. And thrift stores. And home improvement stores (like Home Depot, Lowes, Ace Hardware, you get the drift).

Yes, sad, I know. I didn't used to be this way. Until early this year, when my good neighbor J pointed out a few design blogs she said I might like. You can see them on the right hand side of this blog. As we all know, misery loves company it’s fun to share with your friends!

Now, I drag the kids with me as I peruse the oops paint sections and ponder the merits of what I could re-purpose from the thrift store. Not to mention the fun of herding them through Ethan Allen. Actually, they were really quite well behaved in that one. It was WOW! that drove them to the edge and I contemplated using bicycle flags to locate them.

For those not familiar with WOW!, it means Weekend Only Warehouse furniture and is only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday and specializes in closeouts from top furniture manufacturers like Henredon. I don't think they have many locations and their website says it's under construction. Searching on Yahoo brought up Houston, Denver and some South Carolina ones.

Anywho, I just thought I'd give you some idea of my current level of obsession and point the finger give credit where credit was due for this whole mess. Thanks, J!



  1. Oh, like thanks for pointing out there is a WOW in HOUSTON. Like I needed that.

    Love, Mom
