No Freedom 55 just yet...

It's White Sale season.

I haven't felt much like shopping in the last little while, for obvious reasons.

But things still have to get done. Kids still need haircuts. Trips to the mall are inevitable.

As we were passing through the venerable Canadian shopping institution known as the Bay this past week, en route to the salon, I noticed that there was a sale on House & Home linens. It's a brand I like; not too pricey, but you get that certain look.

I'm a "touch and feel" type of shopper, so I had to pause and take a look at the many colours they had on display. The kids, of course, had to stop in their tracks with me. Not wanting to delay lest they pulled out the "we're not shopping AGAIN now, are we Mommy?" whine, I stopped for no more than two minutes.

As we continued on our way, the Boy said to me: "So, are you shopping to decorate your fantasy mansion, Mom?"

I had to laugh. "Well, not really, we're just needing new sheets, ours are getting a little old."

To which the boy replied: "That's okay Mom. Think about that mansion. Dad's working on it."

Whip it, kid, whip it real good...

He's too cool. And dream decorating is my favourite kind - no fingerprints on your walls, and no marker on your favourite sofa!

I love that! A fantasy house... I need one of those too.

Funny. I've laid out my fantasy house too many times to count. I've never picked curtains for it.

My annual Ikea magazine is tagged with post-it notes for items for my dream mansion :) Oh, I'm also a feeler and toucher of everything. My mom was, too. It was sooooooo annoying. I am soooooo my mom.
