can you relate?


who am I?


I was just shopping at Khols for underwear, but as one does, I walked around the store to remind myself what else I "need''


Passing by the towel section, there were subtle Christmas towels calling to me like a hawker at an amusement fair. Oooo I say to husband, look at these Christmas towels.


They were thick, not threadbare, and subtly colored.


subtle... not a word usually connected with my design sense of the weird and eclectic world of a 4 year old girl. I would go for a towel with rudolph on it complete with red blinking nose, not these gray towels with a dark red streak running through, like a dirty tartan.

But... they called to me, they taunted me with being fashionable and new, and maybe if I got them I'd be considered fashionable.

"Come on, join the gray brigade!".... "everyone's doing it!"


I fingered the soft, thick towel edge, pausing sideways on my way to more important purchases, my husband trapped behind me now having towel choices thrust upon him.


I imagine he was thinking, "I was so close to the running shoes.... " but because he loves me and wants peace in his life, he answered my question with, "sure let's get two"


We had a coupon for $10 and a 30% off coupon so basically my "Spaving" (spending while saving) self was appeased with the fact that they would only cost $6 each if that!


HA! That cinched it... we'll now be fashionable and hip with gray.
For Christmas.

why are they on my cage?

  1. And with that red seems like they'll be seasonal all the way through Valentine's Day!

  2. Actually I think they're really pretty and now I want some, too! But where did I put my coupon?!

  3. I am sure Milo felt they should be "IN" his cart so he could snuggle up to them--they are so pretty..hugs, Julierose

  4. Milo doesn't look impressed, but I think they are just perfect. Kohl's has good coupons, but the closest one is 80 miles from here so I don't shop there very often.

  5. Oh you heeded the siren song of gray. Very pretty. I have been contemplating redoing the master bathroom but can't find the right color of light blue I want.

  6. I'd get them too if I had a place for them, but I don't think my burgandy red family room is the place ...

  7. Hahahaha -- I can so relate! Spaving -- that's a good one. I'm not too good at that, but I'm very good at the "gotta have it" shopping! They are very pretty towels, you hip girl, you!

  8. I dislike gray as well, but I think these are lovely. The red makes it, really. I shop at Kohls way too much, but they do have some nice deals on socks.

  9. Grey! I can so relate! I have a ex-project, one I started but decided it's now in the no pile, mostly with grey. I should get creative and make something else! Who knows! Thanks for this story!

  11. I think the towels look nice… but I'd get a Rudolph one to accompany them :)

  12. I know the feeling . . . and have come home with things on more than one occasion.

  13. LA - this is one of the many reasons I try to get out of a store as soon as I have what is on my list! Temptation can be too great!!! Should you decide to rebel against fashion, you could always applique a Rudolph AND a flamingo onto them! Enjoy the rest of your week, Colorado buddy!

  14. To me they do not look seasonal at all, but all year long useful. Great addition to your home!

  15. I think they look good for year round, too. I finally like grey a bit... it must be about to go out of style. Haha.
