So I'm sort of on a spending lock-down these days. This is due in part to a very expensive trip to Disney. Egads. Who knew you could charge $7 for a small box of popcorn? And $9 for a corndog? And a whopping $28 for a kid's tee shirt? I guess if you're gonna pay your CEO a salary of $27.7 million, you gotta generate funds, huh?
I might have also gone on a bit of a spending spree at J Crew and Anthro just before the trip. But there were sales! Big sales! And I saved so much with all my spending! (yeah, that logic didn't fly with my irritated hubby, either.)
At any rate, I'm attempting to show some restraint in the retail shopping arena these days. But that doesn't mean I can't window shop...and tempt you all with some of the stuff in my favorites list on Etsy. So if I magically found a money tree (I'm pretty sure they grow at Disney), here's what I'd purchase! (Clicking on the photos will link you to the Etsy store that sells the item!)
Butterfly necklace by cardinalhouse. And you can choose from several colors for the butterfly - so pretty! (This would be the perfect accessory for some of the Anthro shirts I got- did i mention they were ON SALE?!?!)
There are some really cool original screen prints at stevester that you should check out...but this horse is my fave!
The art at William Dohman is fabulous, and this 8 x 8 print is perfect for the family photographer (or scrapbooker, or anyone's who proves themselves able to stick to a budget. HEY that sounds kind of like ME!)
I am in love with the print on this adorable little sundress by Shelly Murphy Apparel. And I just so happen to know a little girly that would look incredibly cute in it!
Shiny. Silver. Stars. Um, I think I really NEED this necklace by SoulPeaces. It can be engraved with any custom words you desire. Maybe they could engrave "Your Husband Said to Stop Spending Money" on mine. :)
So there you have it. Now go forth and shop Esty! And enjoy your Thursday, ok? With any luck, I will getting some scrapping done to share with you tomorrow. I also have two kiddos very interested in seeing the movie UP, so that's on the schedule for the afternoon as well. Yet another venue where I will pay an exhorbitant amount for about 10¢ worth of popcorn. Maybe I should look into a popcorn cart to supplement my income this summer?!?
