While I’m often drooling over or coveting pretty things, I’m not one to really splurge on myself and really only treat myself once in a blue moon. But ever since I’ve finished my last semester of grad school, something has come over me. Like something naughty inside is justifying my spending as some kind of reward. Oh, man, I’m gonna feel the hurt when my credit card bills come in!
So, this morning I found myself on a non-stop browsing/shopping haze rather than working — jumping from one treasure to another. I wrenched myself away from my desk to go to lunch, which has hopefully broken the spell.
Check out today’s booty!
Paper-Source. I can look at this stuff all day long. Today I talked my buddies into attending a couple workshops with me. ReNew, ReUse, ReCreate – Earth Day Event with Lammy and Color, Color, Color! Stationery & Favors Workshop with KTai. Super excited. If all goes well, handmade holiday gifts will be going out this year.
Joss & Main. Although I was tempted by the Rowallan sale, I zeroed in on the Nordic Ware goodies. I was inspired by the scrumptious header photo and ended up getting the Bundt Brownie Pan, which I think I’ll get good use out of. But Lammy and I were DYING over the Beehive Bundt Pan that I’m still thinking about going back for.
Anthropologie. You know kero loves her some Anthro, but oftentimes it’s way out of my price range. Today I was happy to pick up a couple Milk Bottle Measuring Cups that have been patiently waiting for me in the cart (seriously, how cute is this!) and a couple lovely little Partial Wing Trinket Dishes. Every girl can use a trinket dish and, at $4 each, this is an adorable deal!
Ok, now promise to get back to work. But that beehive bundt pan….
I’ve recently become enamored with Kay Nielsen and have wanted to get my hands on a copy of East of the Sun and West of the Moon. Illustrated by Nielsen (said to include some of his best work), this is a book of Scandinavian children’s tales. Given my love of fairy tales and art, this is a win-win for me. I fell off the wagon by ordering a copy from B&N, though I have my eye on a vintage copy, as well. *teehee* 🙂
