What a Birch!

February 17, 2011

I have about a 15 minute walk to get to and from transit everyday and most mornings I'm too tired to pay much attention to the stores I walk by, let alone the things they might have displayed in the windows (plus, at this time of year it's too cold to stop and admire anything).  That changed the other day when I passed by Veranda Home and Garden on Yonge Street and saw this:
Virch-look vase
Birch Vase - So Pretty! (the picture doesn't do it justice)
Sigh.  I'm in Love.  I think this would go perfectly in my dining room - once I've finished decorating of course (I have grand plans).Unfortunately, there are a few roadblocks between me and my love:
  • The price: $100 is a lot of money for a vase.
  • I NEVER buy myself flowers, so having a vase is pointless - I'd be relegating the poor thing to a life of unfulfilled purpose, and that's just mean.
  • My dining room is FAR from finished.  Buying accessories for a unfinished room seems silly.
I'll just have to continue to admire it from afar, and hope that the store has a 'One day - 80% off sale'.  It could happen - right?
