I seem to be a bit of a whiner this week - just fair warning here. I love to thrift and find treasures. I love dishes and linens and love the hunt. But, there is one thing I love, love, love that I do not want to hunt and that is Cath Kidston goodies. I am jealous as a girl can be of all of you that have easy access to CK and her wonderful goodies. I love the fabrics.
I love the posies and roses and colors.
I should be wearing these on rainy days.
I will take three of each. Maybe a half dozen of the spotty pink mug.
Yesterday, I received a sale advertisement via e-mail. I subscribe because the colors, patterns, and goodies make me happy. When I notice the Red Spot Knitting Bag was on sale, I decided to be brave and order it all the way from across the pond.
I steered my browser to the website, signed in, changed my account information to reflect our new address, and clicked the spotty good bag into the cart. I was pretty excited. I clicked continue. The bag was marked down to 17 pounds $25.45). A little high for a bag, but I have been pining away for so long. The shipping calculated. 20 pounds $29.95). Sigh. Clicked cancel. Continued dreaming.
