Mo' Mecca, No Problems.

About two weeks ago i got an email from a HomeGoods representative saying they would like to offer me a small token of thanks for supporting HomeGoods this year.  Well, support HG i do-it is my mecca after all- so i hesitantly gave them my home address, and wrote that i hope they aren't a creepy stalker.

When i didn't receive anything, i chalked it up to creepy stalker status.  Crap, but what can i do about it?  Thankfully, a Valentine's miracle occurred and this came in the mail from the fantastic folks at HomeGoods.




What a sweet card!  And what a pretty gift card!  I was not expecting this kind of token of appreciation....

I plucked off the gift card and flipped it over to see if there was a number to call to get the amount, not noticing what was written in its place....

Holy flippin' moly!  That's craziness!

I had seen this wonderful flowerpot that i wanted, but it was a definite want, not need.  You know how things go at mecca-you snooze, you lose-but it was there when i went back!  Hurrah!  Now i'll get warm HomeGoods fuzzies when i set it outside every spring.  Isn't it gorgeous?!? And i still have some gift cash left over for something else.




S jokingly asks me if we are making money yet on the blog-he's a very practical sort of guy who doesn't completely get blogging.  This time when he asked, I said no, no money...but we are definitely seeing some perks!  Thank you, HomeGoods, for being aware of me and this blog.  I truly, truly appreciate it!

Anybody else give in to a recent want, not need?  How about the money making part of it all...?

Cool gift! I just received my tax check today and I will soon be visiting the Silhouette site because I want one. However, I feel that I also NEED it! I'm chalking it up as a business expense... for blog and etsy, right? ;)

I love me some Home Goods!!! It's also my go to place if I just feel like walking around and getting ideas...of course, I can never leave without buying at least one item!

I love it when little random gifts show up on my doorstep, its always a nice change. And even better if you have some extra money to get something you have been wanting and not needing. Blogging for sure has lots of perks, and they are not always money related, but for sure awesome indeed.

-Much love, Kim and Mr. Gnome
