OK I caved lately and got sucked in by the 'sales'. Yes, they were good sales, but still not free, so I was still spending money, which I am supposed to be saving not spending. But it WAS a good deal, and I can blame it all on my friend, Kara, who not only blogged about the deals, but also sent me an email telling me I needed to get myself over to BHLDN. And like an obedient friend I listened to her:) I CAN listen to what I'm told!
First up was this 7 1/2 yard roll of linen, scissors included .
Cannot wait to make some pillows or table runners or SOMETHING out of this!
For now it just looks pretty sitting on my shelf in my sewing room.
Isn't this the cutest box? This is one box I will be keeping. Too fun!
Can you guess what came in it?? (no it wasn't butter)
Shoes. I'm a sucker for cute shoes. Especially if they have leather lining and soles. AND they are on sale. These fit every one of those categories. I did not deliberate for long. In the cart they went. And there they stayed through the whole check-out process. Which, I might add, I completed as quickly as possible because I was afraid something might sell out before I got mine bought!
I have an outfit all planned around these things. Now if the snow will only go away I could wear it!
With snow, you will not find me out in anything but boots.
(I know Mom, I know, you never thought you'd see the day)
Candles. Long, thin tapers. Grey. Dripless. What's not too love?
A whole dozen. For $9. You would have bought them too.
Paper medallion fans. Way too cute and cheap to leave there. I did refrain from getting all the colors of these they had available and some other really, really cute and fun paper items. After all I already had the linen and the shoes in my cart. It was either those two things or get rid of those and buy all paper stuff. And since the shoes refused to get out of the cart and the linen is rather a business purchase the paper goods had to wait. Maybe next time they have an awesome sale, offer and extra 40% off AND a friend tells me to get over there!
Have you bought any sale stuff this month? Any after-Christmas-specials? Any super deals? Any splurges? For yourself? A gift? Your family? Please tell me I'm not the only one who succumbs to this stuff!! Have a wonderful Sunday - God Bless.
