Anyone else head to the stores and do a little shopping this weekend? I'm guilty. I hit up the $1-$5 bins at Michaels. I love a good bargain. They are carrying this line called Treasures by Shabby Chic. I'm not sure if it's affiliated with Rachel Ashwell but I am LOVING it! I found this journal and pretty pens and a little fairy mirror compact to keep in my purse.
Then I found a notepad with my initial and some too cute note cards. These were all in the $1 bins. Does anyone else have a fascination with stationary items? I can remember as a little girl loving the aisles full of perfectly lined up papers, different colored pens and pencils and office supplies. I love pretty little notecards in this day and age of emailing and cell phones.
Now this purty little box is the reason for the trip in the first place. My sweet Cousin bought one last week and I knew I had to get one of my own. I haven't had a new recipe box since 9th grade foods class 20+ years ago.
Man I can't believe it's been that long. I'm getting old.
Back to the little box...my old one is an ugly gray plastic whose lid hasn't properly closed for years so this is a welcome addition.
I had to get some of these fun recipe cards to go with it. I have tons of recipes I've saved from bloggers I need to get written down. Most of them are desserts. The dessert section in my recipe box is the largest. Don't tell anyone.
Then there's THIS.
I have been wanting a new camera that's smaller I can carry in my purse and this baby fit the bill. I love Canon cameras. I have a larger camera that is a Nikon and after a year of use I'm not in love with it. It's entirely possible however the reason is the camera operator, maybe I'm just not using it right. It takes horrible indoor pictures. I'm hoping the new camera is better.
So yeah, I was a bit of a bad girl this weekend and I can't say next weekend will be any better. There's a shopping trip in the works with the ladies of Jazz and my big Sister.
Could spell T.R.O.U.B.L.E.
I plan to do most of my shopping for the Jazz booth though. It helps when you aren't spending your own money. You get the fun of shopping without the dent in your wallet.
Hope you all had a marvelous weekend and are ready for the week ahead!
