Discount Shopping

Stinky hot humid Memorial day. Spent a whirlwind hour (because I was with HB who specializes in sitting in the car with the AC on full blast) at the Tanger Outlets (well three of them). Spent a grand total of 7.50 at J. Crew (Tshirt), 29.98 at Bannana Republic (linen scarf and sleeveless blouse) and, my very favorite - 33.00 at Nine West for a lucious pair of sandals.

I have been lusting after this lovely $125 pair of sandals in the J Crew catalog for at least three weeks, but haven't been able to bring myself to pay that much. Don't think I have ever spent that much on a single pair of shoes.

So when I found these buttery soft suede sandals I was thrilled to discover that there was a pair in my size. And I like them even better than the others. Here they are ..... accompanied by my 14.99 linen brown and beige scarf.

So virtue is rewarded. But I miss having ABJ along because this is the kind of shopping that she loves and it is so much more fun with a companion who enjoys it as much as you do.

Yoga Cushions

DA DA! I finished them up last night at about 10:30. These are the Yoga cushions my brother requested for his birthday - a little late, but they took a bit more time than I anticipated. The Yin-Yangs are appliqued on and the backs of the cushions are the opposite color. I folded up cotton batting for the inserts to get the proper level of support. I am very pleased with how the project turned out :)

Tiny Books

I love these tiny book necklaces that Philadelphian Margaux Kent makes and sells on Etsy.

Yellow Ribbon

Found a piece of silky yellow ribbon in the living room. Reminds me of ABJ :)
