If you know me well, you know I’m not into kitschy items or nicknacks… but I have been looking for mushroom statues for the garden for a long time now. Specifically, red-capped mushrooms. Everything I’ve found is either really small or kind of ugly.
I had a gift certificate to Pier 1 Imports, which used to be one of my favorite stores. I spent nearly an hour there a few weeks ago trying to spend the gift certificate, and the only thing I could find was a mirror. (Which Chris thinks is ugly, hah).
Last weekend we went to Sawatdee for dinner and passed a Pier 1 store. We stopped in, and just about left without purchasing anything – when I spotted these:
They each stand about a foot tall – not as big as I had originally wanted, but a nice size. I’m not sure I’ll ever find exactly what I had in mind, but these finished off the gift certificate, and I think they’ll look great in the herb garden!
Cute find! I think Pier One tends to be hit-or-miss, so you must have gone on the right day!
Yeah, they weren’t at the other location I went to. Happy I found them!
