First let me say, I'm sorry I've been somewhat MIA this past couple weeks!
With my paying job coming to an end next week, it's been C.R.A.Z.Y!
It's bittersweet. I'm excited about this new chapter in my life. But I've never been without a job in my entire adult life. So for that....I'm TOTALLY FREAKING OUT!
So, what does a girl do when she feels like she may never have an extra dollar again?
She shops of course!! :P
Ok, so maybe that's not the brightest idea...but yes, I've done some shopping.
Last Friday night I was Doodle free. I needed to return a pillow to Homegoods, so I figured I'd take the long way (meaning not the highway) and
stop at every freakin' store between work and there stop at Pottery Barn to pick up the latest catalog since I somehow have been removed from their mailing list.
I had ABSOLUTELY no intention of buying anything because, let's be honest, their stuff is over priced and I'm about to be unemployed.
BUT....this past weekend Pottery Barn was having a sale!
Not an ordinary sale people! I'm talking an 'out of season' bonanza!!!
PLUS...it was an extra 15% off of the sale price!
It was like I had died and gone to Pottery Barn heaven!
Sure, the Snooties were looking at me like Goodwill had come to the Burbs because I was buying "last seasons" stuff...but whateva'. I loaded up my little basket with all sort of goodies!!
Like this Indian Corn for $4.97!! Regularly $16.99!
Oh, and $4.97 is PRE-15% off because let's face it...I stink at math and I'm so unorganized I have no idea where the receipt is that did the math for me! LOL
It was a good deal so let's just leave it at that. ;)
Ok, so then we have the package of fall leaves.
I'm totally not thinking fall right now (I'm pretty much just chanting SPRING at this point), so I have no idea what I'll do with them. But I'm sure come October my head will be swirling with ideas for them.
And for $1.37...yeah, I'll take them please. :)
I had to really usher restraint...because I really wanted to buy the whole lot of them!!! But who needs 10 boxes of fall leaves when they can barely find a place to put an extra bottle of shampoo. :\
Anywho...then we have this box of Sedum Clippings. They only had one or I would have bought more of these. They were $3.97 (reg. $16)!
Don't you just love that deep red in those?
I got the last 2 of these FABULOUS old looking gold (brass?) bells! I HAD. TO. HAVE. them!
How much you ask?
That's right my friends....read it and weep!
$0.47!! And must I remind you...that's pre-15% off! Booyah!!
(I guess 15% off $0.47 isn't enough to 'booyah' about...but again, whateva'.)
I picked up a few of these little travel tissue holders for $0.40. I figured they would make nice stocking stuffers or just an addition tuck in to a gift basket.
And this toile make up bag for $6.99! Regularly $12, so not a major steal, but I'm thinking Christmas gift! :)
I got 2 candles for a song...$6.99 each! They smell just like Chai Tea!
I'm sure the Snooties saw this little ragged edge and thought 'no way, not even for $6.99'.
And last, but certainly not least...my favoritist (is that a word? Probably not) item I purchased.....a wooden tray for $6.97 (reg. $29)!
I am so completley in LOVE with this thing!
I have no flippin' clue what I'm going to do with it yet. I've seen people put pictures and things in these and put them on the wall, but very honestly, I think I just want to lean it on a shelf as a backdrop of sorts. I guess we'll see.
So, there you have it! My Pottery Barn Madness!! I know shopping should be the last thing on my list...but come on!! How could I pass up these goodies!
I got all this POTTERY BARN goodness, at a real live PB store for $37.33!! They had to put it all in a.....big bag! Woohoo! ;)
