I Just Bought a (Small) House!

Hello everyone!

Now before anyone goes all crazy on me and starts demanding for my "credentials, papers, and credit rating", no it is definitely not what it looks like or sounds like. Yes I'm aware that it sounded like I had actually bought a small house, but it really isn't. Allow me to go into farther detail!

See, it has been a while since I had done another shopping trip and after picking up the keys from my workplace, I decided to have a short one yesterday! After what feels like 30 minutes of walking in the hot sun drenched in sweat, I finally got to the nearest mall. I went into a store that I haven't gone to in a long time, Urban Planet, and I was pleasantly surprised by the number of cute accessories that I had found there. I had already gone looking for clothes before and none of them appealed to me, so I only looked for the accessories. For the accessories, there were heart rings with a gold border, large sparkly heart lock necklaces with keys, basically other accessories that lies under the sun. At the time they were having a "clearance" section where every accessory on the rack seems to be half off, and this was the necklace that I had found for $2.50!

 I did buy a (small) house! A (small) house necklace that is...

I felt that when it comes to this necklace, it was a "love at first sight" moment for me, since I cannot look away from this necklace every time I pass it. It does not help at all that this necklace actually has a unique charm compared to other necklaces, since it is not often that you see a house on a necklace, let alone one in a copper gold colour.  

It gets better! As you can clearly see in the picture, there is a hinge, so you can open it like a locket and wow was I pleasantly surprised at what was inside! Turns out that this house isn't just for appearances. It also has a couple of "rooms" inside, which looks to be "carved" from the copper gold material that the necklace was made out of. It also got me to buy the necklace because let's face it, aren't the rooms (and the house overall) just adorable? Even the windows are carved open and managed to look like actual windows that you usually find in a cottage!  

I was surprised that there seems to be no bathroom! Usually the bathroom is on the right on the middle floor, but that doesn't look like a bathroom to me... What do you think? Can you guess which room is which?

The furniture are 3D and pops up.

Overall, so glad that I found this necklace and it was the only necklace available on the rack too!

Just a small note, if you haven't noticed already, I had added in a menu at the top underneath the header for easier access and organization! What do you think? Does it make it easier for you to access certain content?
