I went to hobby lobby for the first time and you’ll be shocked with what I came home with

Okay, I lied.  You probably won’t be shocked.

I really did experience the goodness of Hobby Lobby for the first time last week {they are a new addition to the Pacific Northwest}. I was partially in heaven {the knobs! The craft supplies!} and partially overwhelmed by how many random trinkets/picture frames/yard art that could be crammed into one store.  Most of all, it was good to finally know what y’all are talking about when you say you found {fill-in-the-blank} at hobby lobby. Now I get it. They have a little bit of everything.

As I was unloading my cart onto the counter to purchase, I laughed at myself: every single thing was neutral. Out of a store full of color and pattern, I only chose the color-less items.

At least I know what I like!

ampersand

This little ampersand was my favorite purchase. I’m thinking I’ll glitter it. Or not.

hairbows

The hairbows were a great find too … in my dreams I would be from the south where my little girl would wear humongous bows everyday. Kids up here don’t really do that, but I’m going with it anyway. I’m sure I could make these, but at $2.99, you can’t beat the price.

knobs

The selection of knobs was impressive. I’m pretty sure they are the same ones we all love at Anthropologie {but a fraction of the price}. I was actually needing some for the laundry room makeover and could have gone crazy with color. Instead I chose the gingham and brass. They may be too country, or they may be perfect. Hopefully progress will continue this week on the cabinets and I’ll share photos soon.

All in all, I’m a fan of Hobby Lobby. They are opening a store much closer to me, so I’m sure I’ll venture in again soon. And probably walk out with more of my beloved neutrals.

Do you find you stick to a color scheme when you shop? If so, please share!

    Yes Emily! Rock the southern bow like nobody’s business! It’s so sweet. I’m from Louisiana, the joke is, “The bigger the bow, the better the momma!” $2.99 can’t be beat, I’m headed to Hobby Lobby today. :)
