It's happy home is now over our kitchen desk.
I also discovered an adorable cherub holding a wire basket.
I thought I could fill it with craft supplies, such as paint brushes and other odds and ends we crafters tend to collect.
Their prices are affordable and the selection was endless. It was actually quite overwhelming trying to take it all in. If you ever find yourself in the Charlotte, North Carolina area, Black Lion is worth a visit.
We also paid a visit to the Northlake Mall and hung out at Z Gallerie browsing all the latest and greatest in home furnishings. It is where I discovered this adorable dog with floppy ears for a fabulous price, thanks to my best friend's discovery of a small blemish on one of it's ears that a little polymer clay & distress ink couldn't take care of.
We'd love to have a pet but do not have the ability to devote time to one right now. So this dog, which I gave to my guy as a souvenir from the trip, is the next best thing. He is nameless at the moment but we are already taking great pleasure in having him in our home.
I have more to share this week from my trip, including projects from the Inspired event. The 2 days we devoted to learning and creating were such an adventure for me. And I look forward to sharing it with you.
