bugs... buds... a big ugh

You know we are finally warming up when the fuzzy little bugs start venturing out from their winter digs! This particular caterpillar was quite the speed racer... you could barely hold on to him.

I have to say I am loving all the great flowers & buds peeking out right now! The superb thing about living somewhere with "true" seasons... outstanding color & vibrancy in the Spring! Almost like they are waking up from a long winter's nap to say "hi"!

A while back on a post I had mentioned my excitement about a new bookcase I had on order! I have been looking for one about six months... when I found this gem.
Well... a big ugh... unfortunately the company I ordered it through phoned the other day... they had to cancel all back orders on this piece! what! I was crushed! The lady that called was SO nice! This was a new item for them and when they arrived they had major quality issues. I felt really bad for them... they are having to call all customers (130+) and tell them the news... what a big loss for them! Get this though... they are sending me a 75 dollar gift card for the inconvenience! How cool is THAT! Things like this happen... not their fault. Frankly I love the fact that they are a great company not willing to sacrifice quality and stand up for great customer satisfaction! I just love them!

The good news... I did find one "somewhat" similar over at Sundance... casters and all! :)


So... here's to a truly terrific Thursday... which reminds me... I completely forgot about way back wednesday yesterday... go figure... I'm a nut that can't keep her days straight!

May today be full of beautiful buds... the best is still yet to bloom!

look at that hungry little bug. You've got a brave little adventurer on your hands.

I'm glad that the company made the decision to pull the item if it wasn't up to standard - that says a lot - and that they issued a gift card - too cool.

I love SUNDANCE - big time. Send me a link to the item so I can have a pic and admire how much more beautiful your home is gonna be when you get it... I pretend I live at your house

Do you have an actual brick and mortar Sundance nearby? I love that store too.

I'm so very bummed about your bookcase! That was the coolest thing I've ever seen!

I've been in the Sundance in the Park Meadows Mall near Highlands Ranch, CO and they have some of those pieces there (or they did) - and they are ALL awesome! You might want to check it out if you were planning on ordering one - it might save you some free shipping! (Ok, I think you've mentioned that you live in CO - if not disregard - bad, bad memory!)

Anyway... glad to see you're seeing some "buds" near you... I've been looking and NOT seeing any! Ugh! And - it's spitting on snow as we speak! Spring, where are you?!

Smiles,
Jen

Ok... proof reading was an after thought on my post. It should have said, "It's spitting OUT snow... " not "on snow." Ooops!

Fuzzy Bug. Near where I live we actually have an entire festival dedicated to these critters in the fall -- It's called the Woolybear Festival. What can I say... Northeast Ohio is a rocking part of the country.

i DIDN'T realize you were "in the area"! i WISH i was over there somewhere! I am in the middle of nowhere (shopping stinks BAD)... Grand Junction. We are supposed to be getting a Dillards & a Macys... that's big here! :)

shipping is a bit of a bite... but... i have looked EVERYWHERE here... pleeeeease... had to do the ship thing.

let me tell you... it DOES just about kill me about that bookcase from Wisteria... it was already a love thing! UGH!!!!!!! :)
