Things that deserve the stink-eye:

An HGTV moment.
a fancy garbage can. Seriously?

My wife insisted. Behold its leather exterior trimmed with genuine imitation stainless steel. A cow had to die for this? Fake stainless steel was smelted for this? Why would anyone ever need something so fancy to store his used Q-tips until garbage day?

And to further my point, see below to experience the home-decor statement said g-can makes when there's a bag in it....







Real life aka looks like crap.

Main lesson learned ~ your wife is happy. End of story.

meh--doesn't grab me, but if I had a decorative style that didn't involve finding new and clever ways to organize toys, crayons and endless drawings, I would lean toward "french country," before I'd lean toward survivalist decor.

Why wouldn't it be a faux leather exterior with an actual stainless steel liner? Huh? Why? Answer me!

Fool! - you were supposed to buy the imitation stainless steel liner {that's right, a liner!} which is what the plastic bag goes into so that it's hidden.

There also the additional available extra of the leather lid with faux stainless steel handle to complete the look.

A snip at only another 40 bucks.

See! What are you complaining about???

lol.

Trash cans! I knew I forgot to buy something. I'm currently rocking ametal-pails-without-garbage-bags-chique kinda thing.

Sigh, will never wrap my head around fancy garbage receptacles.

It's a chick thing... I have fancy ones all over my place, although no cow died for it! Still, they are pretty darn fancy!

Stylish bin. Where's the lid??. Sadly the plastic bag makes it look cheap 'n' nasty :-).

Alittlesprite said...

Not always a chick thing. I have a plastic bag beside my bed..lol.
I don't really care what sort of bin we have, as long as I don't have to touch it. Or look at it.

SO true. It does look pretty shway without the bag in it though... if it didn't hold garbage that is. :)

haha I was thinking, "that's gonna suck once the Target bag is in it."
