The First Purchase
On the way home from our less than stellar First Apartment Visit, Matt and I stopped at a CVS. Passing through the Ugly Decorations aisle, I found these cute little tea light candle lamps hanging out on a shelf beneath ridiculous rag-doll Jack-O-Lantern shelf puppet...things.
They aren't exactly high-end, but I like them. They are officially the first purchase we've made for the new place. Right now they are nestled away safely, lying in wait.
Conveniently I chose Autumn colors, despite green and some other color being available.
Me: I like these colors. They are great for Fall, which will be here soon.
Matt: But you can use them all year 'round, right?
Matt: Or you can just buy other decorations that do match the season.
Me: Of course, since these ARE Fall colors, this means I need to be able to put them up.... in the Fall.
I'm the queen of subtlety.
