A girl can treat herself......

every now and then can't she?

There are times when you just feel like spending money isn't there? and this weekend was no exception! The great thing was that I spent money in a thrifty, productive way - on to find out how I can put such a positive spin on spending money!

When it comes to fabric, threads and other notions relating to the world of creativity, I feel I can justify spending money. Most things will then be turned into new goodies to sell on the website - that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

So my embellishments and fabric I bought today can be cancelled out.

Walking past the florist I saw some gourds - always reminiscent of autumn and at 40p each - who could resist.

Next - a trip to B & Q for bulbs. Whilst there I saw 2 blinds which were ideal for the 2 bathrooms - right size, pretty floral pattern and only £1.50 each!!! I never spot bargains like that EVER. Now, just to clarify - they weren't just bought because they were cheap - I genuinely needed 2 new blinds - really I did...!

A walk past the CS saw me salivating over a pretty teacup and saucer - hubby's eyes started rolling wondering how many teacups we could possibly have in 1 house. At £3 I was more than happy.

Last but by no means least - a bottle of wine at 1/2 price!! - a necessity in my book after a long hard week.

I'm a happy bunny!!!

I can't get over the price of the blinds.
Great buys and how wonderful to find the wine at half price, well deserved after all that bargain hunting!

Hi Sarah,

the blinds are fab!
I absolutely agree, all your purchases are completely necessities! lol
And I justify all my purchase by telling Chris what I will make with them... all I need to do is find the time to make it all!
