~ Treats for ME! ~

I don't shop that much retail...has to be on sale, coupons to use, gift certificates...you get the picture!  I'm retired and a fixed income is very relative to shopping.  I had a couple of gift certificates and also coupons to use so I shopped for "me".  You can tell I love black & white and animal prints!  :-)  The loot included 2 handbags, a set of sheets and a pillow for the sofa.

Flower designs are on both handbags ~


 I had a set of these sheets when I had my king size bedroom set. Now I have a queen size and found the sheets again at Stein Mart!  Happy, happy ~

 The zebra pillow was found at Walmart for $10!  I already had the toile & black pillows in the background.


I also bought some spray paint to redo a few things on my patio, however, the wind has been horrendous....about 30 mph and gusting to 40 yesterday & today.  Not fun!  Hopefully, it will die down soon and I can do some painting and planting ~ :-)

What beautiful treasures you found, Pat! Way to go! I love Stein Mart; but I can rarely find any of their beautiful clothes that fit me. My mom, on the other hand, racks up every time she goes in the store. She amazes me!

Thanks for inviting to me to your site, Pat! I love it so far and can't stop drooling over that Praline Bundt Cake I saw below. I gained about 3 pounds just looking at it. :) Happy to be a new follower!

You're supposed to wait for the wind to die down before spray painting? Is that why I have a manicure by Rustoleum?

LOVE the zebra!
