Well, not really. But, it sure is making it easier to catch-up and KEEP UP with my regular reads. I'm still adding some of you, and catching up on my reading. This has taken a lot longer than I had expected. I'm almost done, though. SO, don't worry if you haven't heard from me in a while. I'm getting there. ;0)
I have nothing scrappy to share. I have a tendency to start a ton of projects at once, and I'm in that beginning phase on about 5 thing right now. So, instead of scrappy eye candy, I thought it might be time for a little window shopping instead. I found this artist today through a post at Poppy Talk. Erin Tyner is an AMAZING artist. She creates dioramas, and then photographs them. They are so eerily beautiful! Although, I'm really trying to be good with my spending, I had to have one. Hey...I said ONE. Well, one for right now. This was my first purchase:
As my budget permits, I will be adding this one, then this one, and finally this one.
And, I don't know what it is lately, but I am having a major jones for all things Urban Outfitters. It's a sickness really. First of all, I MUST have this for the Halloween party that we plan on hosting this year:
And, HELLO?!? This is must-have for the dresser in my bedroom. We have the ugliest table lamp in there right now. Yes, it was from Pottery Barn. But, it is just so not my style. I've been looking to replace it FOREVER, and this is perfect!
These would make for some rockin' necklace hangers in my bedroom:
And, I'll definitely be needing some of these. Not for my kitchen, though. I'm thinking they would make nice little bowls for my craft room to put bits of this and that in. :0)
I'll spare you any more of my crazy window shopping after just one more. I love these mixing bowls. My mom has a similar set that she's had since I was a little girl. They bring back good memories, and come in even COOLER colors than my mom's. I gotta' have these...for nostalgia sake, ya' know?
I have about $300 worth of stuff on my wish list over there, and I could probably add more. And, we won't even go into my desires from the new Pottery Barn catalog. *sigh* But, I'm really trying to be good. Trying. Really. Hard. And, if it wasn't for this trip to the beaches of South Carolina, and the $200 worth of gas that I'm probably going to have to spend...some of it could have been mine. As it is, I suppose I'll just have to drool through the cyber window.
Speaking of my trip, I don't know why I had it set in my mind that we were supposed to be there today. Silly me...my great aunt & uncle didn't have the house rented for us until tomorrow. Good thing I couldn't find directions to their beach house on Mapquest. Otherwise, I would have just printed them out, and been on my way. Fortunately, I called them this morning to get the directions, and was informed of my error. Whoops! Hazel is majorly upset. But, we'll get up bright and early tomorrow morning to leave. So, I hope to have some nice beachy photos to share tomorrow...and a tag that I am WAAAAAY over due on completing!
