Shopping Hiatus {2}

I have been shopping a lot, too much if you ask me, but it hasn't been for me at all. It has been mostly for the home I have been decorating. It is coming along and I hope to have it wrapped up soon and I will be sure to share. While, hubby was away I did get to do a bit of yard saling. My intention was to find a few lovely deals for the home I am decorating, which I did find an old trunk that I am going to attach casters to and make a coffee table. I also happened to find a wonderful old wooden chair that needs just a bit of painting. I really have no where to put it, but I fell in love, it reminds me of an old chair that my grandfather once owned. It cost me a whooping $5.00.


Okay, okay, since you dragged it out of me, I also bought a new pair of sandals. It is all a blur really. Hubby was away and I was trying to prolong my having to go to bed alone so I was searching all my favorite sites then I came across these lovely shoes and I had another 20% off code and before I knew it I was getting an email saying thank you for my recent purchase. I don't think of it as a complete failure though, my pair that I currently own are slowly but surely falling apart bit by bit, they are a few years old and I wear them all summer long. I shall think of my new sandals more as an investment, surely my feet will thank me...

I LOVE that chair! It has such great lines. You could always add casters to the feet and use it as a desk chair. I'm actually looking for the perfect chair to do that with myself :)

$5 for the chair! Amazing. I wouldn't have been able to pass that up!

Also those sandals were originally $98 and you got them pratically for a song!

So don't feel too bad. Great purchases.
