The other week I was shopping in Home Goods. I have to go there weekly because I am addicted and they are always getting new stuff in.
Last week as I am wandering around in Home Goods and a lady stops me. She says I see you have a kids stool with an airplane on it. I assumed she wanted to know where I found it. She then proceeds to tell me that her son just turned 10 and they have just changed his whole room from airplanes. I'm like okay lady, that is nice. Then the good part......she tells me she has this Pottery Barn airplane rug that she was going to donate but if I wanted it, I could come and pick it up. My eyes probably lit up, because I knew it would be perfect for Henry's room. She gives me her cell number and tells me to call her tomorrow.
I tell Charlie the story and make him promise that he will go with me. I didn't want to be abducted by this family over a free airplane rug. Saturday morning rolls around and I am a little sketched about calling this women but I did and we arranged for me to pick up the rug.
My mouth dropped when I saw it. Perfect colors, perfect size, perfect everything! She even gave me some airplane picture and wooden airplanes. I plan to hang the airplanes from Henry's ceiling with fishing wire but I have not gotten that far yet.
In Henry's words,TA DA......
Thank you Home Goods shopper for the perfect rug for my son's room!
