Okay, yes, I know today is Saturday, but yesterday I had a good day, and thought I'd share my reasons for this enthusiasm. Goodness, I've found very little of it lately, so have to capture it while it lasts. Yesterday I received a beautiful ATC from a friend and fellow blogger, Katherine, as well as a super handmade card. The ATC is so lovely, thank you Katherine for your kindness. If you have not seen Katherine's blog, please take a peek. She is a very busy young woman, running a tight ship [her family life], working, and still managing to stitch, make preserves, have a garden, make soap.............I honestly can't keep up with her.
Continuing along with the fun, I managed a few bargains in town yesterday. SHOES!!!!!! Yes, SHOES!!!!!!! I'd been seeing racks of discount shoes at one of the stores but hadn't had a moment to go in and have a snoop. Well, I could have come home with lots more, but felt I should be a little realistic, and only have three to show..............LOL....... The three pairs cost less than the cost of any one of them. I do know the 'special' is genuine, as a little sad note is the imminent closure of the store - economic hard times and health problems.
I didn't like to have all the fun, and was armed with a 'sale' promotion for Mitre 10. My husband likes a certain type of container for storage purposes outside - too many things he'd rather not have mice running over!! Of course, he's a very organized person, as you can see by the tools all hanging neatly along the wall, the whiteboard with 'notes to self', so he will use the container wisely. He was very happy that it came home with 40% off the marked price. So now we both have something for Valentine's Day!!!
