Shopping Hiatus {2}

So far so good. I did buy some plants for the garden which was on my "it's will be okay" list. I just adore gardening, especially all the flowers that can be snipped for bouquets. It also fits in with the 3/50 project. I also returned the lovely purse even though I really did love it. For Mother's Day though my hubby said I could buy the purse back or get a housekeeper for a good cleaning. I think I am going to go with the cleaning. Funny how things change as I get older. Now for the amazing things I won instead of having to buy...

{via Kotori}

First I won a beautiful cuff from Tonya the ever so sweet blogger over at Kotori. Mine is the gray one with the orange button. I just adore her and can't wait for her shop to open.


Second I won address labels from Sarah of Truly Smitten. I absolutely adore them. I had her put my husband's photography info on them and it makes everything look ever so special when we mail off the DVD's. I may need to get more of these soon. Also her blog is amazing, so much eye candy.


Although I did not win this lovely straw from GlassDharma, I did get it free with a $3 shipping charge. I got the straight straw and just love it. I used Rachel's lovely photo from Heart of Light, I just adore it with the lemons.

I feel like one lucky girl!

You are quite lucky. What fun things to have won.

I saw a similar MK purse at TJ Maxx last weekend. It was the same color- different shape. I walked around the store with it on my arm for an hour. But put it back before I left. I really liked it... but just couldn't make that commitment!

I am headed to the beach tomorrow and hope to buy a few things for the summer wardrobe- after that- I think I may join you on your hiatus. The "loose" one, of course!

Oh my gosh you are lucky!! I haven't won that many things over my lifetime...at the moment I only remember winning a contest on radio disney when I was younger and I got some type of microphone thing..I loved it...but it's been awhile since that win! :) now as for u not having a printer...how is that possible? They give those away when you buy macs.... You should have one!

Mrs. Filly said...

oh and you are so right about how things change...for my birthday I just wanted all our debt (minus the horrendous condo of course) paid off...lol :) we're still workin on it but we are close!
