Ugh,I'm Bad,I Know...

I am terrible.Here I am trying to downsize the purses I already have and what do I do?I go and buy another one!Bad me because really I don't need it and also bad me because I need to be saving money for our move,NOT spending it.It was $10.00 so I could have done much,much worse in the world of vintage purse prices but I couldn't help myself.I think it's adorable,even after showing it to my husband who eyed it with the usual "I don't understand why you like some of this stuff" expression and oh so eloquently remarked "it looks like he sh*t out the sun",ha!He has a way with words that one.


So now I've put myself on strict no more buying rule but I'm glad I didn't pass it up.I love Enid Collins purses and the old craft purses from the 60's and 70's,which is what this rooster is,a craft project purse.

In other news I'm happy to report my town is finally looking like Spring and not stuck in the dead of winter look.I took the kidlets for an evening stroll yesterday and snapped a few of the pretties around town.





My favorite photo I snapped yesterday by far was this one of an abandoned news stand because I appreciate irony in all its forms:

  2. I'm so glad you got the bag, especially at $10!!! The look your husband gives you sounds just like a look I get from my boyfriend! Good luck with your no buying rule :)
