(I ain't got no dark, hunky guy unless I bake me a giant gingerbread man --- which I haven't yet ruled out!!)
I had a lovely bubbly bath the other night; I started a good book yesterday. And today, I've been practicing the fine art of self-indulgence by shopping for some pretty yet totally useless items! (Well, not everything was useless.)
I've been looking all summer for a plain pink shirt to go with a pair of grey pants I bought at a local thrift store. (They have very light & subtle darker grey and pink stripes in them and are perfect for this time of year.) I headed to Frenchies -- and this time, I lucked in! Here's my new-to-me pink shirt -- complete with wrinkles. I'll give it a wash and an iron, and we're ready to go! It made me very happy to find this!
I also found this sweet little brown sweater (complete with it's wrinkles!).
I'm always on the lookout for decorating goodies, and I was really happy to be able to scoop up these next things. One wall of my downstairs hallway is my "art gallery". In the winter, I replace one of the pictures with a seasonal one. Today I found 2 more ($3 each) to put up this year.
Then I found this adorable little snowman that I can sit in the flowerbox outside. He was only $1!!
I bought this little item for $0.50; I'm going to add it to my Christmas village; and I think it's perfect for a me because I live on what's called "The Lighthouse Route" here in Nova Scotia.
This item is brand new -- still in the cellophane -- for $2. I'm going to give it to my daughter at Christmas because she often has friends over for dinner; and I think she and her friends would get a kick out of playing it.
I also got this book (0.85 cents).
