So this is What I Bought!

When I go to a store, my hubby usually takes me.  He is real good about it....but you know how it is....you don't really need this or that.....

Well, yesterday when Candy and I went shopping I asked if we could just stop at HL.  I knew what I wanted and  I wasn't going to be talked out of it!  Good thing we went when we did.  It was the last one!




I found  the crochet collar at an estate sale quite a while back.

I put on my old 1928 jewelry....see the evelope one....it  has a stamp from the 80's when I bought it.


I think even the base is cute!   I am so tickled....I knew she would look cute in there!!

Then at Garden Ridge....I did really good and only bought one absolutely necessary item!


Do you see it??

My new little gnome.  Squeal, squeal!! (I think I must need help!)

Yes, that is my Geraniums....they are really pretty right now....(sorry snow people....it is in the high 70s and I for one, am LOVING it!

The geranium is gorgeous, the gnome so cute, and the dress form very nice and she comes in handy as a jewelry.

It was waiting for you! So cute how you added the collar and jewels.
The little gnome cracks me up. Looks like he has a long climb ahead of him.

Lucky girl...you scored! Love 1928 jewelry, I wish I knew where to find it.

I laughed because my hubby loves to shop but always tries to talk me out of things I want to buy. He always says (especially in antique/thrift shops), "We'll come back to it later." Why later???? :(

XO,
Jane
