It's like the UK equivalent of Black Friday. So after Christmas I was prepped and ready to head out and grab the post Christmas bargains. It's in my genes!
First stop was Target and their huge sale where I went straight to the home section and picked up a pillow, napkins, bowl, coasters and stag candle holder. I always avoid the gift wrap and bags - there was a tonne left so I'm sure they will still be around when Target goes to 90% off.
Next up was Michaels where I scored some icicle house lights. Everywhere else had just blue left, so I was pleased to find the white after rummaging through an entire shelf. Plus a couple of boxes of glass baubles for next years tree.
I picked up the pink mercury glass pendents (in the pic above) from Walmart. I'm thinking of turning them into this:
I got home and began to lay out all my bargains. I still couldn't believe the stag from Target was still there. And it had all it's antlers intact. But it does look a little bit weird, I thought. Oh wait, it's because it's missing an ear!
In my hurry to inspect the antlers I completely overlooked the fact that it is missing an ear. An EAR people!! What an idiot!
So now I'm left with 4 choices:
1 - leave it as it is. It's unique and artistic, the Van Gogh of stags (plus, if I leave it at an angle you won't notice).
2 - snap it's other ear off - ouch!
3 - try and fashion an ear out of something (never going to happen).
4 - return it
Oh, the perils of clearance shopping!
