I LOVE DI




I am completely celebratory right now! The kids and I went to DI the other day. They each had $1 to spend on anything they wanted. While there, I was searching for any hidden treasures (if you know me, you know I LOVE a good search). And I scored BIG TIME!
In the Pottery Barn catalog there was this drink dispenser that I loved for outdoor parties. However, I couldn't bear to EVER spend $75.00. I totally found one that, wahoo, I like even better than that one. The best thing of all, $6.00! No joke!

Ok, ok, here's the next best thing. I was walking around the furniture section, looking at recliners and sofas from the 70's when, voila, this chair catches my eye. I have wanted a cozy reading chair for my piano room and this was what I always imagined in my head! I quickly grabbed it for $30.00! I'm going to reupholster this bad-boy and it will be sooooo cute! Such a great day for me!

Once again, DI has never let me down!

I am jealous! I have wanted one of those drink dispensers. Now I know who to keep her eyes peeled for me for the lovely simple shoes & the dispenser!

The chair looks perfect for reading. I usually end up buying books at DI. But sometimes they smell so bad I turn around and give them right back.

I wish there was DI here. It is one of my favorite stops when we come back for visits. You really lucked out with the fun stuff. Can't wait to see the finished chair!!
