The One Got Away: Home Edition


Did you ever fall in love head-over-heels with something, then kick yourself for NOT getting it?

I found this at HomeSense {my favourite place in the world!}.  It's BIG - I didn't have a measuring tape but surmised it to be 3 1/2 cubits long.  Yes I very accurately measured it with my forearm.  Seriously.

Anyway, on the day I saw it - my heart skipped a beat and I had a VISION for my living room re-design.  But there were other factors to consider: 1) It was late in the day and I was tired from a long day of shopping; 2) I had the baby and I didn't think it was going to fit in the Flex-y; 3) I just didn't feel like forking out the money for it at that point - it had already been a successful shopping day for me and I didn't want to over-extend myself.

So all I did was take a photo of it and I walked away.

Now I just can't get it out of my head {just like that song - you're welcome by the way!}.

The colours aren't great on my iPhone photo, but it's a creamy background with a silver-y, pewter metallic circle. I imagined it over my piano.  Now it's gone. But it's HomeSense, so maybe I'll find it again if it's meant to be.  You hear that, Universe?

You could totally knock this off! And, save money I'm sure!

Oh I could tell some STORIES about "the one that got away" from homegoods too! There's still lingering heartbreak... so I totally feel your pain! But I bet you could DIY it?
