A little retail therapy...



First I want to thank all of my blog buddies for their kind words and uplifting comments! You are the best! How did you know that was exactly what I needed to hear! I love Blog land..I do have to apologize for my last post...a new day and a little retail therapy helped. (plus a 1/2 bag of Dove chocolate eggs.)I know this can be dangerous,(to my hips and my pocketbook) but I stayed within my budget. I got this sweet bird and nest plaque at TJ Max, it is made out of a heavy plaster. Perfect hanging on my wall in my Tattered nest office/studio...Of course I had to pick up a new purse for spring and I also found the sweetest little nest full of eggs rubber stamp...do you see a pattern here? Kinda obsessed with anything related to birds, nests, eggs, lately. So all in all it lifted my spirits a bit...today will be even better! My three sisters are taking me to lunch for a belated birthday celebration! My oldest sister ( retired) has been gone for a month to Mexico, so we waited for her to come home to celebrate...I am off to lunch toting my new purse. Have a nice Sunday!

I am so sorry to read you were feeling so down Gail! I think a girl spending a few pennies is always good medicine. I too am a bird, egg and nest fan and just ADORE that plaque!!! Wish I had a TJ Maxx to run and get one. I am having Jos help me to get out my spring/Easter decorations this evening. Love the nest stamp and am sure some wonderful things will be made using it.

So how did you snazzy new purse and you enjoy your lunch? :)

Hugs ~

The bag, the plaque, the Dove Eggs, the rubber stamp, Oh my! All lovely and all deserved. Hope you have a better week and I'm "into" birds, nests & eggs lately too! Wonder if it's something in the air? Or in the Blog-air? Anyway, we certainly do have good taste, don't we?!
