Shopping Hiatus: 2 weeks down

Okay, so I have to admit I did buy a few things. I bought paint brush rollers and a paint tray. Whew, happy I got that off my chest. Just kidding, I did buy those things, but it would be very hard to do my room re.do without them. I do want to add some final touches to my room, but for now I will have to do with what I have. This may be a good thing, I may actually end up buying what I really want instead of odds and ends that I tire of quickly. Oh, and don't get me wrong I have been tempted...

Alyson from Unruly Things put this lovely ensemble together from J.Crew. I want it and I want it bad.


This rug would look quite lovely in my new room. Maybe Pottery Barn will have it on sale after my shopping hiatus. I really do hope so.

The lovely Blair from Delight by Design posted this lovely bag from Gerard Darel. Lucky for me they are based out of Paris, so in reality I would not be able to buy this purse anyway. It is so pretty to look at though.

Last, but in no way least I would love to drive around in one of these. The ever so stylish Courtney from In(side) the Loop posted on this lovely Fiat 600. Be sure to check out her blog for more insight into these amazing tiny cars.

That purse is so pretty to look at, but not terribly feasible if you have two kids tugging at it while you're shopping like I do.

Did you see on my blog that I've now become obsessed with that song you posted yesterday?

please sir said...

Good work on the practical paint roller purchase and good job avoiding these less practical ones:) That j.crew sweater is pretty adorable though and who wouldn't want that car!?

Haven and Home said...

I will the first outfit, the purse and the car! Oops, I am supposed to be on a shopping hiatus too!

simplesong said...

oh boy ... love all these pretties. must. resist.

Courtney said...

While of course I also love the car, that bag has me jumping up and down at my keyboard!!!! How fantastic is it?!!! I'm assuming it would cost me an arm and a leg and if that's the case, the car may be a better option (as I'm sure it would at least appreciate since it's vintage and all....I can seriously justify anything!)

Michelle said...

ohhh, those are cute!

Rachel said...

So much temptation out there! But you're holding strong.
I don't think the paint supplies count. Please tell me they don't count, because I am going to have to buy some bias tape later today and I am telling myself that doesn't count.
