What I Bought at Pottery Barn

August 9, 2011

So, you all knew that I couldn't let that $100.00 Pottery Barn Gift Certificate burn a hole in my pocket for very long, now, didn't you?  And of course I had to share today's purchases with you.

They call these "Voluminous Cannisters."  Uh, yeah.  More voluminous than any glass cannister I own, anyway.  I bought the one on the left, and that's considered the "small" one!  Really, it's HUGE in person.  And they had it filled with very real looking red apples (think FALL, y'all) and they had me hooked!  I can't wait to fill it.  (Of course I'll wait to find the filler at some place like Target - on clearance!)

Then I also purchased this very sweet Pocketwatch Clock.

I purchased the small one, in bronze.  It comes on an easel, but you can also hang it if you'd like.  I think I might try it under a cloche or in a decorative birdhouse.  What do you think?

I was torn between so many beautiful things, but as a DIY-er I sometimes I find it hard to justify paying a lot for something I could make myself at home.  Even when it's someone else's money I'm spending!  Do you know what I mean?

Well, I ended up with a small bit of change still in my pocket for another day.  And I'm so grateful to Home Talk for sponsoring Home Stories A 2 Z' s giveaway. Thanks again guys!

Stay tuned later this week for a peek at an awesome place I visited last weekend. (Can you say "American Pickers?")

And there's still time to link up to my Club G.W. with Charm Bracelet Diva Party going on right now here!  Can't wait to see you there!
