starbucks

Anyone seen those adorable pale blue paper Christmas trees on display at Starbucks?

I was in one yesterday and fell instantly in love...and then picked it up to see no price on the bottom. What, just holiday decor? Not for sale? waaaa!!!

A nice guy behind the counter told me I might be able to pick one or two up after Christmas if I get there early.

so...

I'll be on a mission. December 26th. You'll know where to find me...at first light...in Starbucks...waiting in line with an empty shopping bag...ready to take my goodies home. Hopefully!

I haven't seen them but I rarely leave my house these days unless it's to the grocery store...I have a very boring life. But good luck with your shopping attempt!

Love,

You won't be surprised that I did the same thing! Those trees are adorable and caught my eye immediately. You NEED to have one!

Imagine how excited you will be next fall when you unpack your Christmas decorations and find them all.

I haven't seen them. I'll take a look as I'm on my way there in a few minutes!

I read your post this morning. This afternoon I went right over to Starbucks for a latte and to see your trees! Both were delightful. :)

I am running errands tomorrow....I'll have to make a run to the Star just to see these trees.

BTW, you really should try cooking with your kids. You will be surprised how quickly they learn different measuring spoons, how to sift flour, etc. Also, because from start to finish is less than an hour, no one goes crazy!!

I am going to have to skip the drive thru and go in to see these trees!

I haven't seen it yet. I hear you though. I always seem to find things that I want that aren't for sale. Why is that?
I hope you get them.

Oh, shoot...this happens to me all the time. Usually, at a garage sale, I find this TREASURE at the back and it is ALWAYS "NOT FOR SALE"!
