I am thirsting for color. Vibrant and bold.
Last night, if I’d had my way, I would have painted one wall (a color similar to) Regatta by Sherwin Williams.
Instead I went on a “spending spree”. Although I choose to call the acquisition of 9 items for less than $25.50 thrift.
The first purchase in the series was this lantern. It had glass panes in it, but two were broken. So I got a steal of a damaged deal: 75% off $30. $7.50 and it’s easily a foot and half tall.
Then, I found these napkins at work.
I never would have paid full price for them because they are funkier than I am, but for the clearanace price of $1.38 a piece…well, I couldn’t just leave them there!
My store discount reduced the price even more and I ended up paying a whopping $4.15 for four. (They didn’t photograph well. I think because they are busy.)
The biggest purchase…And I just loved them immediately. I only bought 4 of the 12 that were available because I’m a girl on a budget, but I wanted the whole freakin’ set.
Technically, they are Cashmere by Maxwell and Williams soup bowls. But their shape, wide and shallow, makes them perfect for Emily-size food portions. Originally $10.00 a piece, I got four for $12.00.
Did you keep up? That brings the 9 item shopping spree to $23.60. With tax, which is 7.75%, the total for all the goods comes to $25.43.
And my need for color and a little retail therapy was satiated.
