Thoughtful husband.

I've been wanting a globe for our home for a long time. Someday, I want to have lots of different globes all together in a pretty little collection. For months, everytime I've seen a globe in the store, I've talked myself out of buying it. I just can't justify $40.00 (or more!) for a decoration in our budget right now.

I loved the colors and style of this one at Urban Outfitters a few weeks ago.

JD surprised me by buying this one at DI (for $3.00) and spray painting the stand. It's on top of our china cabinet in the kitchen now and I love. love. love. it.
So I don't have the budget to buy fancy, pretty globes.
Or to travel the world, as I dream of doing one day.

But. . . I do have one heck of a thoughtful husband who makes my day nearly every day by the little things he does to make me smile.

Ummm, one of my very favorite things to do is to go to Urban Outfitters (or Anthropologie) and pretend like I'm shopping, but really just go and get desing ideas... and then going home and re-creating those designs on a much more reasonable budget. Your globe is the cutest thing. And JD's DEF a keeper.

PS-Yes, let's skype!! I'll have to figure out how to make it work--I'll have to borrow Sophie's laptop, seeing as my laptop is not equipt for skyping. But yes, lets!! :)
