I ran into that discount store Ollie’s today to get the bedding that the girl wanted, you know….for the new room that she doesn’t have yet. I also looked at the books because you never know what you might find and I did find a cute story about a clumsy duck for my cousin’s little girl for Christmas. You can’t beat $2.99 and I will find her a little stuffed duck and she will be a happy camper. I decided to check out the shower curtains while I was there and I was totally blown away that I found one I liked. I still can’t believe it, Ollie’s, who knew? The shower curtains that the girl and I looked at averaged between 40-50 dollars, I got this one for $9.99. It’s a little more gold than the photo but it pulls the gold from the embroidery on Ophelia’s dress, which is not as gold as this picture above. My only qualification was that the curtain had to compliment this picture and in person it does. I’m just as bad as the girl, buying a shower curtain for a new bathroom that we don’t have yet.
I stopped at Joann’s to try and find a swatch of fabric that matched the shower curtain so I would always have the colors with me, the gold was easy…the brown not so much. I ran into my old boss…. from when the girl was in kindergarten….she had just quit. I’m not even sure what store she had been working at? Talk about stopping in at the right time…not because of the gossip but because I was able to touch base with a great lady. Things have been happening like that a lot lately…who am I to question it? Right place, right time and all because I stopped to look at the shower curtains….Zia
