shopping finds at chain stores
We went shopping for a little patio table the other weekend and I found this fun peacock wicker hanging chair at Pier 1 ($299). If I were between the ages of 4 and 14, I would want it desperately. Chairs that hang from the ceiling (or a stand; whatever allows them to swing) are automatically fun for kids; my kindergarten teacher had one in our classroom and it was a special treat to sit in it. The peacock motif of this chair adds extra flair and the cup holders...just stop it. I've seen lots of hanging chairs lately, including a fabric type that's similar to a hammock folded in half.
I also spotted these pretty grey side tables ($70) from the Threshold collection at Target. There are so many great items in this collection, like this pseudo sawhorse desk ($110) and this desk ($170) and pretty much all of the home decor. I'm hankering for some translucent turquoise glass vases ($30 for the 15.7") but can't justify the clutter; they are such a pretty color in person, though. Window shopping, it shall be.
