I found something yesterday that I have been coveting, yearning, and longing for for a long time. The cost of them had was just more than I was willing to pay. I was always hoping I would luck up on a bargain and yesterday I hit the jackpot! I was running some errands and decided to pop in Home Goods just to look around. I was getting ready to leave with a couple of small items and there it was. I do believe a light shown down from above on her because I almost walked right by her. I could not wait to show y'all what I found at
Home Goods of all places.
Oh, do you see her. Oops, that is the back of her. Let me see if I can get her to turn around. She is a little shy.
Do you see her now. Look at that wonderful chippy patina.
There she is. My beautiful Santos cage doll. She is a replica of course, but the real ones are way out of my price range.
The replicas are usually $89 and up for one this size. Originally these were used in Spain and Portugal in Catholic religious processions. I just love the way they look.
There is a local decor shop (the one that my breakfast room table and chairs came from) that has a couple of these for sale and one is $89 and the larger one is $129. Ballard's carries them, too in their catalog and they
are eighty something, too.
She stands two feet tall and was ONLY $39! Yep, I said $39!
I don't know how one of these even ended up at Home Goods, but I sure am glad that it did and I am glad I was in the right place at the right time. Love when that happens.
The tag said, normally sales for $89. I saved $50. Yipee!!
Her hands and elbows are jointed.
I also bought these real sunflowers at the grocery store yesterday. Three bunches for $12.
Not too bad of a price and I love them. Aren't they beautiful?
Yes, two of my favorite things together.
This shot I took last night.
Just wanted to share my happy find with my blogging buds. I hope you go out today and find
something you have been searching for, too that makes you do the happy dance. I was sure doing one yesterday.
Y'all come back now,
