It's finally time to get rid of the builder's pendant hanging over my dining room table. I can't express to you how much I want to see it gone. I know. dramatic. I started looking and, wait for it, couldn't find anything I liked in my price range. I don't know why it surprised me since that's often the price I pay for having good taste but no money. HA. I finally found a few I liked for less than $270 (with my two faves ringing in at under $160!) so I had to share.

Christmas is over! I'm sad but my excitement in sharing Genevieve's Care Bears party is taking the edge off. ;) I have to say, this one was definitely a favorite. Maybe it's because I loved Care Bears as a kid and now the girls enjoy it 30 20 years later 😉. Or it might be the larger than life Cheer Bear on the snack table. ha!
