Yesterday was like Christmas when my mailman came. I am so glad our old grouchy mailman retired and we have a nice one now. Because he wouldn't be too happy with us. Last week Travis got a box of bullets to use for reloading ammo and it weighed about 50 pounds. Then yesterday I got all my goodies that I ordered off of ebay and Amazon the last few weeks. I don't buy stuff very often, but have been here lately. I'm finished buying I promise, for now!
So what did I get? First I got my valances for the dining room. I got three and they are barn red and tan ticking. I only paid 17.00 for all three of them and they are brand new, I didn't figure I could make them that cheap and they look really good. I also got brand new 1200 thread count, Egyptian cotton sheets. I had no idea they went up that high. They are really nice and they were 69.00, a lot cheaper than in the stores. I got two books. The first was The Encyclopedia of Country Living by Carla Emery. It's a great book and huge. I haven't got to look at it too much. Then my favorite thing I got was a book by Tasha Tudor. It's The Tasha Tudor Cookbook:Recipes and Reminiscences from Corgi Cottage.
I just love the cookbook. It's not very big, but it has some tasty looking recipes (or reciepts as they are called in there). But I love the artwork the most. I just love Tasha Tudor. The way she lived was amazing and she seemed like an incredible lady, I wish I could have met her. I'm looking for more of her books and things. Her artwork sure is worth a lot of money now.
It seems like I have been spending money right and left here lately. But I haven't spent too much money and I got some really good deals. Now I have to get back to the thrifty mindset and not spend any money. But I really like buying dishes and prim decor!!
