I am having so much fun continuing to sit on the couch, taking my Benadryl every few hours, watching "Downton Abbey" re-runs, and checking out blogs. I have also discovered the world of etsy. Oh. My. So much great prim stuff! I will continue to add the places I find to my section on my blog, "Favorite Places to Snoop and Shop".
Here are some of my shopping places up-to-date (Um, today on the couch):
The Rusty Thimble - I bought an adorable black wool felted sheep on a little hanger. I love black sheep. It's not because I am a rebel or anything, I just love the color in prim decorating.
Some of the other things I loved on this site are the pillow tucks and prim pumpkins (I am not ready for Fall, even though it is my favorite season. I am falling prey to influence. Thank you, Christine, for making me feel like I should be eating ice cream and jumping on the Autumn bandwagon). Great graphics, cute little faces, and very affordable. This will have to be a purchase for another day. I think telling my husband that my shopping was "Benadryl induced" probably won't fly. :S
The 1890 Gable House Goodes
I bought a Barn Owl Candle (I love owls. My last name is "Wise"- get it? That's why I am a "wise-cracker") Listen to this scent (some of my favorite smells!) -"Roasted Coffee Bean & Maple Cream ~A Yummy Country Brew." Ahhhhh! I can't wait to shove my nose in that when it arrives!
So, some things I have been looking at that I might get hooked on are cross-stitch little pillow tucks or old bags with the cross stitch samplers attached to it... There are a lot out there! My friend, Christine, at Preferably Prim does beautiful ones and has some cute patterns I want to try. I have the material and thread. I just don't know what to do with it. I think I have sewed "crookedly" for too long!
I was visiting another blog, The Cranky Crow. She was talking about the history of spin tops. I never realized how beautiful they are. You should definitely read about their history and look at her collection. I might have to purchase some and put them in a bowl.
YIKES!!!! I would like to take this moment to thank you all for feeding my habit. You may never hear from me again after this because my laptop will be taken away because of overuse...
