I was such a bad girl this Christmas.
I generally don't buy a lot of things because I don't feel the need to splurge just because of the 'tis the season' mantra going on around. I *do* however love to shop. At the mall? No. I'm not insane. I hate the mall during regular times! Why is it people always stroll in the mall and block the flow of traffic. They just slow down to the point of a crawl with their strollers and seventeen children. But I digress..
I decided to splurge on some things that I wanted just because.
I generally don't get gifts. I do an illustrated Holiday card and send it out to all my family and friends. This year I didn't get a chance to do that, so I'm gift-less to other folks. Perhaps I'll send a 'just because' card later in the year. So it's understandable that I didn't get and goodies. I did get the classic $10 in a card from Granny. I love my Granny.
I'm not an easy person to buy gifts for. I admit that. I tend to request just money. I hate gift cards too. I don't like be limited to a place of purchase. Cramps my style. But I did get a practical much needed present from a friend...this mirror!
I've needed a full length mirror for a long time and this one was great. We went down to Target on Christmas eve, and battled the people to get the practical. Thanks Cat!! :D
I also splurged, and I do mean splurged on some patterns.
I will never get tired of du Barry patterns. I love this one.
This was an etsy find. A large size vintage glove pattern. Yay!
Last but not least, I think this might be my new most expensive pattern. **EEEP** I'll have to do the caculations. These are just the tip of the iceberg on the goodies I got for myself (pattern wise). I'll post more in the showcase next month (year, ha!!).
Did you all get some goodies?
I did. My lovely husband got me some very nice things. I was very spoiled. But don't 'cha know it, I'm already spying things on Etsy I want to get. Bad girl!ReplyDelete
Me, too! I got a storage ottoman both to store supplies in so they're not dumped in a corner of the living room (I'm keeping the ever lost remote controls in there!), a thread rack, and some embroidery paints to play with!ReplyDelete
That DuBarry is gorgeous! I love a crossover neckline. One of my goals this year is to make some of my DuBarry patterns instead of just admiring them...ReplyDelete
Good to see you back, Mikhaela!ReplyDelete
Ha ha, I got a full length mirror too! Love your new patterns :) They look like fantastic Christmas presents.ReplyDelete
That glove pattern is awesome, nice find! I'm a 7 1/2 and it's hard to fit in modern gloves, I give up on vintage ones.
