7 Item IHeart: Flower Measuring Cups!
That happened to me, as I browsed the Anthropologie website and stumbled across the most adorable Florist Measuring Cups:
There was absolutely nothing I didn't heart about these little gals. IHeart they are pretty enough to double as function and accessory. IHeart that they are dishwasher and microwave safe. IHeart that they make me want to bake instead of dread it. IHeart these measuring cups so.... but I didn't heart the price. Coming in at $36 for the set, I just couldn't do it. And tempted time and time again, still couldn't...
And then I took my little shopping trip to the store, and I held them, carrassed them and gazed at them, and still didn't do it.... Kinda like leaving a pet shop with cute little puppies staring at you with their sad take me home eyes.
So imagine my excitement this fine weekend when I went for a stroll through Pier 1 and stumbled across a set of Floral Measuring cups, wrapped in a beautiful little bow. My heart thumped as I turned them upside down to look at the price tag... $15!!!! And better yet, I had a nice little 20% off any single item coupon burning a hole in my wallet, I felt it was really meant to be, making the set a total of $12 vs. $36. A savings of $24! And even though I typically wouldn't spend $12 on measuring cups, it just felt so right. I couldn't resist.
So, without further ado, my new adorable Flower Measuring Cups:
The colors are pretty perfect for keeping on display in my kitchen space! And they nest so wonderfully, taking up very little room!
And notice, they done a little pouring spout, something that the Anthropologie set didn't offer!
And each one is tastefully labeled, in cute handwriting script!
All in all, I am happier with this find than if I would have clicked that "checkout" button the first ten times around on the Anthropologie site. Goes to show as my wise mom always said, "Good things come to those who wait."
So who is with me? Anyone been so tempted but waited and found something so much better and/or cheaper? Did you jump up and down in the store, squealing like a little mouse, just like I did? How about a fun shopping trip this weekend that had you blogging the second you returned home? Please share the goods!!
