Oh Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn . . . why do you do it to me?
In case you're not sure which object in these photos I adore, let me show you a close up view.
Yes . . . the bird's nest chargers which are selling for $16 each.
Six chargers = $96.
So, I called my friend Lori to have her ask her husband Kelby (who knows everything), where I could get some grapevines.
One week later, these were in my living room.
Last night, I had trouble getting them all to fit in my bathtub to soak (not to mention I was making a big mess). I kept going into the bathroom every half hour and rearranging them so that every inch of them would get wet. I took one out and tried to bend it, but it broke. It was clear to me that these were going to need to soak much longer than I had originally thought . . .
and people need to take showers in my house . . .
and my upstairs shower isn't complete yet.
Jason, who hates messes, came up with the genius idea of putting them in a garbage can and filling it with water. This way, they could soak for an extended period of time. God, I love that man.
So there I was, standing in my kitchen at 11 o'clock at night with a big garbage can full of grapevines.
I got to thinking . . . maybe $96 isn't so much to pay after all.
