Today, I'm celebrating silly triumphs.
Do you remember when I posted an image of this mystery flower?
Well, it's a mystery no more! It's Allium Nectaroscordum or Mediterranean Bells.
You have no idea how excited this little discovery made me. Yes I am a dork.
I had this epiphany (thanks in part to Google of course) last evening. I was trying to clean up the garden a little and decided that the dead stalks that used to be the beautiful flower above needed to go. Most stalks pulled out of the ground with much less effort than I expected. One stalk, however resisted and came up with the bulb- it looked like an onion! That clicked in my head. Alliums like this one in my garden are part of the onion family. Lo and behold, after a search online, I found that the once mystery flower was in fact a type of allium! I heart alliums!
The next triumph involves a lamp I plan to take home with me this weekend.
Last weekend, while
feeding my addiction at HomeGoods I fell in love as usual. Since I'm trying to be good and not buy too much house stuff (operative word here is trying), I took a picture and walked away from it. (Not of course before making sure that it wasn't the only one, so that it would probably still be there when if I came back to adopt it).
Since my cell phone doesn't take the clearest pictures, let me tell you that the price tag reads $49.99.
obsessing thinking about the lamp all week when, yesterday, I came across an image on one of my other addictions Pinterest.
The Weston Table Lamp from ZGallerie for a mere $199.
Coincidence? I think not. This is the universe telling me that I need to go back to HomeGoods and take home my lamp, don't you think?
