Home Sense .. my weakness !


I don't know if the States have "Home Sense" stores .. better for you if you don't .. because once you have been in there .. you can't stop going there .. I have so much stored under my bed waiting to be released ? in the garden .. well .. I need a support group for this addiction .. I can not leave that store empty handed !
PS .. the metal ball moves inside the arch ! .. and the kitty ... well .. I AM a CAT person !

Hey, I just typed a comment and it evaporated! If there's a Home Sense around here my husband is in big trouble! I love that globe!!!

Home Sense is a dangerous place. ;-) Both items would look great in my garden.

Oh, and my birthday is... LOL

I just knew you would be getting some retail therapy at your favourite store. I sent you a Blotanical message about it before I read this post. Lovely purchases.

Hello there. Hope you've dug out after all that snow pictured a few days back! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Sophie looks like a very serious cat. I see you garden with gnomes, gargoyles and other such creatures. Did you check out the troll on our blog?

You're not missing hubby are you and going comfort shopping?

Matron said...

I think I know the sort of store you mean, though we do not have Home Sense here in the UK. I found a chain of stores called Pier 1 Imports in the USA and I couldn't resist either!

Anna said...

Oh!! I want the cat. It's the best kind for me--won't make me sneeze. I haven't heard of that store but we have plenty like it. They are all trouble makers!!

Hi guys ! .. I forgot to take a picture of the cast iron snail I bought too ! jeez !

Anna .. this is my weakness .. that store amazes me every time. I need a support group to tame my addiction there ! LOL


matron ... Pier 1 is just down the street from this one .. so yes .. I know that store too !! LOL

VP ... you KNOW me too well now girl ! haha

weed wackin .. (love that name !!)thanks for dropping by mine too ! .. I had a great time looking at your site and the troll too ! good one eh ! LOL


catherine .. that is my wish too ! at least one of as many different plants that will survive this zone .. I am running out of room so I have to get creative .. a TOTAL addiction is so true .. between cats, gardens and garden art ? LOL

Cfraty .. I haven't logged into Blotanical yet this morning .. trying to get to answering posts .. but you must have sensed my adventure mode ? LOL

dirty knees .. another great name ! .. yes .. I swear .. they must make a mint in that store! .. it is always packed with people .. do you know that commercial about ".. start the car !! from Ikea ? .. that is what this store is like for me ! LOL

Marie said...

I know the feeling...

GardenJoy4Me said...

Wurzerl said...

Oh, what a lovely cat!! My Mauzi is jumping near the laptop and tell me it' s the best cat he ever saw. It's normally because your kitty don' t eat the cat food!
Have a nice day Wurzerl

GardenJoy4Me said...

Let's see... Pier 1 Imports, Home Goods, Ann & Hope Garden Outlet, Loew's, Home Depot, Big Lots, Essex County Co-Op of Topsfield, Agway of Danvers, and the many local garden centers (especially Corliss Bros. of Ipswich)... just some of the east coast options for garden ornamentation in this area... or so I understand - not that I have in-depth knowledge or anything! ...Deb

GardenJoy4Me said...

Deb ... LOL ... I am laughing here .. we are a whole different set of women compared to the majority that have facials and beauty treatments .. spend money on clothes .. hair etc ..
WE are garden women who hunt for our gardens .. little gems that make us feel more and more in love with gardening and our pieces of Eden .. I think that is GREAT !

MELISSA MANNON said...

seems like we have a lot in common. I love kitties and photography...I am occasionally a sci fi fan. My husband is die hard. We just watched a three season marathon of Battlestar Galactica so we're ready for the fourth season in a few days...love your blog. Thanks for visiting mine...btw, my best friend has a clothes obsession, but I can't get out of any palce that carries plants without something in hand!

GardenJoy4Me said...

Hi Melissa .. funny how common threads run isn't it ? .. this is the worst time of year for me doing the shopping for garden art type thing .. last of the winter dreads driving me crazy .. can't help dreaming of what "could be" in the garden !
