I'm still around, even though it's been a day and an age since I last posted and I really should be telling you all about my garden or my home projects or I should be telling you about this year's flock of puppies or, maybe, even how "summer has come like cinnamon"...
But, I don't want to.
I want to tell you about my trip to the discount store!
(I don't know for sure but, it seems to me, that our little corner of the Blogosphere really enjoys finding treasures for a 'steal'.... which.... does make us sound a bit like we're pirates... especially since we really like to boast about it. Hmm! Well, if the shoe fits....)
And, speaking of shoes.... look what I found!
Cinderella's slippers, don't you think?!
I don't go to this discount store very often because I can easily wind up spending a fortune on things that don't cost very much.
It's a mystery, really!
This time, however, everything that I bought, was something that I had on my list of 'needs', including, this table cloth. I had seen a blue paisley table cloth in the Pottery Barn catalog, two years ago. I've spent hours looking for an alternative, less expensive way to gain one. I couldn't figure anything out for under $60! Two years I've been looking!!!
This one was exactly what I wanted - a Ralph Lauren table cloth for FOURTEEN DOLLARS!
Then, I found a couple of mugs. I really needed different mugs because I'm cutting down my coffee intake to one cup a day which means I need larger cups!
which, also, means an awful lot of pleasant prettiness!
it's a pirate's life for me!!!
