Monday was my birthday!  My husband said, "Let's go to Jacksonville."  Being the more practical of the two of us, I knew we had a lot of things we need to do at home, so I said, "Okay!".   I had a Pottery Barn gift card with a balance of $93.00 on it.  My daughter gave me the card for Christmas and it was time to spend it.  I wanted almost everything in the store.  They have the most beautiful things.  It was hard to narrow it down but I finally did.  I enjoyed talking to a couple of the ladies who work there and oooing and ahhhing about some of the unique gorgeous things.

  I got a milk bottle carrier...
I've never found an old one, so I have a new one that looks old.  I'm very happy with it! 
I got a glass dome food cover.
Same story-never found an old large one.
I got some hang tags and small blank cards.
I can always use these.
Then we went to another of my favorite stores.

I wish I had taken my camera.  Anthropologie has the most beautiful and unique displays and merchandise.  I picked out a white scarf with crochet fringe and flowers.  Then a very nice lady said hello to me and ask if I was finding everything okay.  Her name is Kelley Cooper and she is a great asset to Anthropologie!  I ask her about a big burlap coffee sack.  It turned out to be a display item. 
Then I ask about a blue comforter which I loved but wanted in white. She had one and it was on sale! I thought it was the one I have wanted for over two years since I saw it in Country Living Magazine featuring the Martha's Vineyard cottage home of Tony Shalhoub, star of the hit television series, Monk, and his wife, actress Brook Adams. That was a jersey comforter with pulled pleated panels all over it.   Well, the one they had isn't the one I've wanted for so long but I love it.  I got the comforter and two pillow shams!  Happy birthday to me!
Here is our bed with the old comforter.  I love it too.

 But, the new one just called out to me.  It was saying, "you love me, buy me".

So, we did.
It is so soft and poofy.
Night night!
