I like to go in to Pier One, but not for the reason you might think. It is rare that I buy anything there. For the most part, I think Pier One is really over-priced. You can occassionally find things on sale. No, the real reason I enjoy browsing in Pier One that I greatly enjoy looking at how they stage and display items. They do a lovely job of it. Sometimes I get ideas for table settings. Other times, I see an intriguing color combination that I might not have put together.
Today was different. Today that sweet tray with the blue bird on it had MY NAME ON IT. And now it is mine.
