In paradise for an hour…

I was literally on cloud nine today! After watching a movie, I went to Pier 1 Imports. Lucky for me, there is one only 7 minutes away from my home! There were some amazing sales going on there–some over 75% off! I got this wonderful mosaic square bottle of fragrance that was originally $27 for only $4.89! I love it, it smells heavenly…very light.

My bedroom walls are bare, so I got this cool art wall decor. I have it on the floor for the picture, but it’s laying flat right now on my floor so it won’t get bent. I have to buy special hinges so it can hang strong on my wall. Originally I wanted it above my bed, but I got the notion the hinges would come off and it would come crashing into my head as I slept. So, it will be away from my bed. When I’m window shopping online at Pier 1 Imports, everything seems small to me. When I went inside the glorious store, everything seemed much bigger, much to my delight. The wall decor I bought today is a good size.

Next, I got 4 bamboo stalks for $10. The bamboo leaves were only $4 dollars each. The vase I already had. I put them in my bedroom since my curtains are maroon. It definately gives my bedroom an extra “feel” to it; very Asian inspired.

I got some earrings too that were originally $17 dollars for $1.98!!! I got three sets. I was going crazy with all these sales! The wall decor were NOT on sale, except the bedroom wall decor because one of the paint job was coming off, but I got the brilliant idea of how to fix that problem very easily so it looks flawless again. I also bought two movie reels to put on my wall and another wall decor. I will post pictures once they are hung up so you can see.

In other news, after coming home from a wonderful time at Pier 1 as I was putting in my two bird’s new bird bath in their cage, the two birds escaped!!! I spent 15 minutes chasing them around my apt. I caught both of them and they are asleep after experiencing flying around. I’m very excited about putting up more decoration. I haven’t had much time to buy much for my apt, but today I had time (and the $$) to do such a thing. I usually take care of more important bills and practical necessities, but it was nice to splurge.

I’m tired. Off to bed!

    1. You are awesome!! First comments are always the best!! I love Coldplay! Perfect video to my Pier 1 experience. I had heard that song…..recently in a movie but can’t remember which one. Do you??? 🙂

      1. I went to their Mylo Xyloto world tour–in my living room, LOL. Unsure which movie, but it was in Life of Pi trailer–you wrote a review on the movie I think. I need to watch it.

      2. Haha! I’m sure you had a great time at their world tour! 😉 Yeh. I just watched a trailer of Life of Pi, but didn’t hear the song. I’m pretty sure that’s where I heard it though. YESSSSSSS! Please go and watch it. There is a ton of allegories and metaphors in it. It makes you think. Let me know what you think. Or even write a movie review of it. Btw. I’ve been wondering. What does your name mean? The Swallowedinthesea blog name? And what is your real name?

      3. Swallowed in the Sea is a song by–none other than–Coldplay. A favorite of mine, albeit a depressing song. I take into careful consideration when choosing a screen name, email, etc. My name is Philip, like Philip “The Governor” Blake. He and I have a lot in common.

My Lords and Ladies, tell me thine thoughts if it pleases thee below...
