Bouquet Of Summer Flowers

ok, I love to shop.  But most of the time, I don't ever buy anything.  It has to really speak to me for me to buy it.  You know, that original item that's one of a kind.  When I saw this decorative plate at Pier 1 Imports (my favorite shop), that was just the kind of item that I'm talking about.  I just had to get it.  


I love the head wrap she's wearing
with summer flowers.
 
 
It was on sale,
which made it even better.  ; )
She will look so cute
in my house these summer days.

 
So, do you love to shop,
or not so much?
I'd love to know.

Sheri, that plate is the cutest! I'm sure you will smile each time you see it! I enjoy browsing antique shops very much. Online has made quite a difference--you can find anything you may want. Lovely red daylily in your photo. I have some that look the same. Have a lovely week. ♥

Good morning lovely one!

WELL, I DO LOVE TO SHOP! Like you however, I enjoy looking, primarily to get INSPIRATION. I am not (at least to my knowledge), a shopper that just buys anything on a whim. IF I do spot something that catches my fancy, then I'll buy. But I mostly go out on a hunt for ideas. Here's my MO in order of frequency:

1. Shop to get ideas for décor
2. Shop for something VERY specific (this is called THE HUNT)
3. Shop for what I need (clothing, shoes, something we need for the house - this is typically done with my husband)

Number one is my favorite type of shopping. To just look in vintage shoppes or antique shoppes is what I love, but mostly, I enjoy browsing in small shoppes to speak to the merchants. I did this while I lived in France and WOW, did my French improve!!!!!!

Your little terrier with her head dress is precious. ENJOY!

It's very cute and will bring a smile to your face every time you see it! I love to shop...but I have to get a really good bargain to turn looking into buying! heehee! And it IS fun to hunt for something specific. Of course I search online for special things too. And I love handmade and shop on Etsy! Let's go shopping my friend! Hugs!

Oh what a very cute plate. I like to shop, but not so much anymore. I do not need one more thing in my house. I just go around and shop the house. That comes from 50 years of housekeeping and things left down from family.

Have a great week.

Hugs,
Mary

I can see why you bought it...now to the question of do I like to shop. I almost alays like to go in a quilt shop or fabric shop, most times a fabric of any kind. I love to browse through antique shops...I never buy though. But almost everything depends on what else I have been doing or what I know I have to do that day. This afteroom I was in and out of a quilt shop in 15 minutes because I was simply worn out.

Thanks for saying that is at Pier One. My cousin has an upcoming birthday and a dog much lie that. I don't know how Herbie would take to being Carmen Mirandaized but I think Bonnie will love it! Off tomorrow!

Red Rose Alley said...

hahaha, that DOES look like something Carmen Miranda would wear! : )

Mercy F said...

Oh shopping is my favourite sport haha but I can get tired too especially when it's a necessity shopping. But when it's a leisure shopping with plenty of time to rest and have a break in a café that I'll never get tired of. We have another common interest Sheri, that plate is btw really pretty. Have a great week my dear friend!

Hi Sheri, The plate is very whimsical...love the colorful head wrap. I often walk thru thrift stores or antique stores but seldom buy anything. I just enjoy looking/browsing. Hope you have a lovely day.

Hi,
I have that dog in real life! A Boston Terrier, my dog is named Molly. I think she would wear a head band of flowers, she wears a flower collar, she is a sweetheart.

I don't much like to shop unless it is an antique mall (a good one) and then I browse with my camera.

Doreen@foxdenrd said...

I would have had to grab that plate too Sheri. How cute is that?!

I use to enjoy shopping for clothes, but now I don't. Blame it on my muffin top :(.

I do still enjoy shopping for my home though :)
