Spotted at Marshalls

I love to spend my lunch hour running errands -- usually a mix of Hobby Lobby, Michaels, the grocery store, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, the dry cleaners, bank, mall, you get the gist.

And yes, I consider shopping an "errand."

So yesterday at Marshalls I spotted these:

The color is off, as they are more of a true aqua in person.  Don't they remind you of the aqua lacquered boxes you've spotted in many blogs recently?  And the price is quite reasonable:

That price is for the smaller box; the larger one was $24.99.  Did I get any?  No... although I could perfectly envision it on top of a few stacked books (top book: Domino: The Book of Decorating) on a pretty piece of furniture in a foyer.  Of a home that I don't yet own or live in.  {Update: our househunt continues.......}

One small critique: to me, the quality wasn't exactly what I was looking for.  The white accents on the box were not painted completely uniformally.  But you have to be very close to see that.  All in all, I think it'd be a nice accent piece.  And for that price, I could get over the white accents not being *perfect*.  :)
