One of my favorite things to do is shop.  I don't always feel like I have to buy something.  I can be content to just look.  It gives me inspiration....makes me feel happy.  But then there are times that I love to buy!!  Especially if I come across something for my house that is unique.  When I visited my dear friend, Vicki's darling little decor store earlier this month, "The Rusty Chandelier," I was compelled to buy!  (You can find the Rusty Chandelier on Facebook)  Here's a couple of my TREASURES:
This lamp caught my eye as soon as I entered the shop.  It literally called my name!!  Not only was the flower base to die for, but the painted shade is actually made of tin!  How cool is that!  I didn't even look at the price tag.  Just grabbed it and headed to the counter to pay.
Then there were these awesome wooden signs.  I wanted one so badly but I wasn't overly fond of the wording on the lone one left in the store.  Just as I was about to leave the UPS man showed up with a boxful of new one...BINGO!!!  
I managed to purchase several other things and finally had to stop because I was afraid I wouldn't be able to fit them all into our car for the long ride home.
Earlier this week I decided to check out the local shops and found this top....on sale too!
These comfy linen pants just arrived at the store where I work, Designer Blvd. and they go perfectly with my new top so I just had to buy them.
Designer Blvd. has great costume jewelry and we are always bringing home new pieces.  Here are the latest earrings for me.
Yes, I really do bring home a paycheck.  I don't spend it all on myself!  But it is nice to have some play money when I come across something I just can't live without!
