Is It So Wrong?

So now that Christmas has passed, I can confess that right before the holiday I went out and bought a BUNCH of presents...for myself!

I had no idea that I was going to run into such amazing sales...whole stores that had EVERYTHING for 40 and 50 percent off.  How could I resist?

I had a heyday in Anthropologie, one of my favorite places to indulge in impulse buying.  Look at all I got for about $50!
If you are familiar with Anthropologie, then you know that's a good deal!
I've never met a candle or a notebook or a little box for no good purpose that I didn't like.

Check out this book Nomad, by Sibella Court:
In addition to yummy photos of global interior design, the pages give me plenty of inspiration for art journal layouts.
It fits into the whole "eye candy" category.
And check out this RIDICULOUS desk notebook that I just couldn't pass up:
There must be enough pages in here for MORE than a lifetime of lists.
And I know that I probably *should* be decorating my own journal covers, but I couldn't pass up these pretty painted-canvas covered notebooks on deep discount on the back table.  (Worrying about "shoulds" is a waste of time anyway, right?!)

Just thought I would share some of my fun finds.  And while I'm at it, check out the hilarious site Anthroparodie.  They take the often-ridiculous, but always-cool-looking photos from the Anthropologie catalog, and provide an imaged back-story.  Always entertaining...enjoy!

oh, come ON! There's been a need for that satire site on Anthropologie for years! Love it. Thanks for sharing. You kknow, I have never gotten anything from there. Can you believe it?

It is NOT wrong to treat yourself when things are on sale!

Excellent information you have shared, thanks for taking the time to share with us such a great article. I really appreciate your work. Wondering where to go in 2019? Things to do has ranked as the best include a remote, idyllic island, the design capital ...
