Pathetic, but giddy nonetheless. I don't know what's wrong with me, but I get seriously over-excited when I find a great deal. Some women get excited over diamonds,
or even this:
and though I too enjoy a couple of these things (not saying which ones), nothing gets me wired like a successful shopping spree. My fingers are shaking with joy even as I'm typing this. Come and bask in the glory of my meager spending:
I got this:
to go here,
Old urn, new flowers:
New centerpiece for the table:
It looked a little unfinished, so I added tule and ribbon.
New wreath for the front door:
I'm ashamed to say it's been bare since the Christmas one came down. The wreath was also looking a little unfinished, so I added the butterfly. I wish the wreath was bigger, but it will do for now. I love how springy it looks. I realize it's only Feb., but I've got Spring Fever early this year. BAD!
And speaking of Spring, this vase is just screaming for a bouquet of wild flowers, is it not?
And the grand total? Hold on to your hats folks... $30. SHAZAM! Unbelievable, even for me. But wait it gets better!
My printer died (RIP you old hunk of crap!) and a while back, Aby posted about how much she loved her new printer. After doing some research, I found she's not the only one. This printer seems great. So I shopped around in-store and on ebay. It retails for $150.
I'll spare you the long boring details, but I ended up buying it at buy.com, brand new, for $89.99 and FREE SHIPPING! Then I got $10 off because I was a new customer. Then they offered a $70 rebate. When all was said and done, I got my fab new $150 printer for a cool $20. BOO-YA! Who needs weed?! Right now I'm high as a kite!
*UPDATE* As Aurora pointed out, I so rudely excluded where I got my fab finds. The goods came from Norma Stone, and I must give this nod to Rochelle, who introduced me to that place when I moved down here a couple years ago. It's the perfect place for finding diamonds in the rough. Thanks again R!
