I thought I had lost my shopping/treasure-hunting mojo, which in turn affects my blogging mojo. But sometimes it just needs a kick-start. You see, my estate sale/thrift-store/Craigslist-hunting forays have been turning up absolutely nothing. Nada. Dejected and sad, I didn't feel much like blogging. Ridiculous, I know. But, today, during a quick trip to Homegoods, I grabbed a little (well, not technically small) vase that was actually very heavy and my faith was restored. Here it is . . .
Yes, it's got some large chips (on the backside out of view), but the Homegoods people were nice enough to discount it for me. This is an Instagram photo from my phone, and while the color is not spot on, it's pretty close. I think it will add a nice jolt of emerald green somewhere (I haven't decided where it will live yet). It's currently hanging out on my mantel. It reminded me of a vase that Hillary Thomas used in a home featured in Lonny last year . . . 

Boom, mojo restored for $15. Not a bad deal. Plus, there are more estate sales starting tomorrow so there's always hope for future treasures. And, I've got a new client meeting tomorrow which always gets my creative juices flowing. Oh, and there are a couple of home projects I will hopefully be sharing in the near future, so stay tuned!
