The kids and I went back-to-school shopping the other day. Yes, it seems early to me too, but it was rainy and cold and there were good sales on, so off we went! It kind of made me excited for them to start school…not because they were naughty or anything ;), just because it’s fun to see them learning and growing and good for them to be with other kids all day!
Anyways, while I was there, I “happened” to walk down Walmart’s clearance aisle and what should catch my eye, but these two darling little lanterns. $4.00/each!!!! I’ve been eyeing these things for YEARS; in pottery barn catalogs, in target, on bhg’s website, but the lowest I’ve ever seen them is about $12/each and I’m just SO cheap! Needless to say, I snatched them right up and brought them home. We don’t have a place to put them at the moment, but I can’t wait to use them on a future table or shelf!
They look pewter from the picture, but they’re actually silver…I just took a bad picture ’cause I was in a hurry.
And yes, I know they’re just things and I shouldn’t love them, but they’re just so darn cute!
