Friday Treasures
I am not a "patterned handbag" sort of a person; I prefer solid because I feel it creates more harmony with my clothing. Well, there is one exception - the Vera Bradley collection. (Thanks to Nancy Lambeth, I now know they actually exist.) In the entire series, there are only three or four that I like, and one happens to be the Petal Pink. During our Friday outing, we happened to browse through a craft store, and my jaw dropped when I saw this! It looks quite a bit like the Vera Bradley one that I like, so out popped the Christmas money I had been given. Now I am the proud owner of this bag. The cost??? $8.00. :-) (Did you notice it even has a wallet to match?)
I could not resist this striped vase, so out popped the Christmas money ~ again! It goes perfectly with my dishes! (Old Time Pottery treasure)
I finally found some candlesticks that appealed to me, and all for the low price of $10! (Oh, where did I place that Christmas cash?! :-)
Now that it is Saturday morning (yawn), I am a bit exhausted and sore. Yawn. Stretch. Last night, Troy and I did something special for the boys. Yawn. I slept on the top bunk with Seth. (He is our little cuddle bug and thought it was the greatest thing I could do!) Consequently, (yawn) I did not sleep as well. Pardon me as I rub my eyes. There were several reasons involved, and one of them being the fact I slept with my glasses under my pillow and kept worrying that I would find them reshaped in the morning. (What else is a person to with their glasses when they are on a top bunk?!) Ethan had the honor of sleeping in "Mommy and Daddy's big bed," and I have a feeling that group slept better than I did! Eventually, my aches will go away. . . I will get more sleep, and there is a little six year old boy who will never forget the time his mother slept on the top bunk with him!
Well, the cinnamon bread has a few minutes left to bake, and I have to get the smoothies, bacon, eggs and fruit prepared. . .
Have a blessed weekend!

Looks like you put your Christmas money to good use. Looks like you found pretty good bargains. This year for Christmas my mom made some purses like that. I thought they turned out pretty good.

I do not like Vera Bradly purses. They remind me of what my grandma would have carried when I was young. However, I do love your candlesticks.

You need to come to Indiana and go shopping with me. I always find the "perfect thing" that's worth more than my car!

That's ok. I'll even go a step further and say that I had a crush on him when I was 7. :)

CHAR, it was the GBS Saturday brunch that causes me to do the same here. We really miss that luxury. :-)
I remember you, JULIE! I always thought you were so pretty and your kids so cute. Thanks for leaving the "lurking" world and commenting. Feel free to leave any delicious scoops concerning Carrie. I am sure we all will enjoy! :-)
LES, I used to dislike purses like Vera bags, too, but my "taste" has an overhaul every 6-7 years. At Earl's party, Emily and I were chatting about the things that used to make us groan are what we use now! :-) I even have a few shirts that look like Joan's because they have come full circle again!
