Just in case you don’t read my other blog, I made over $900 bucks in the last 30 days from blogging. I decided to splurge a little and buy myself a couple of things. I don’t normally buy myself things but since I’ve been making more money through blogging, I’ve been able to do a little more. While visiting some family this weekend, I went to this little variety store in Matador, TX. It’s a little expensive but most stores are that are in small towns. I found the cutest fabric that I just had to have. Instead of the usual cowboy scene, I went in the opposite direction and chose the cowgirl scene. What does my husband say about this? “Nothin’ like an orgy with a bunch of cowgirls!” HA!! I never thought that would come out of his mouth but it did crack me up!
The color is a beautiful yellow color. This picture doesn’t do it justice at all! I’ll be using this as a duvet cover for my bed. I think I’ll put a chocolate backing on it too. I think the brown will bring the brown crevices in my cedar bed. I bought a couple of extra yards to make throw pillows. We’ll see how that turns out. COST: $14.99 per yard. I bought 12. I was lucky enough to get a 20% discount so that helped out a bunch. Can’t wait to show you the before and after! That will come much later though;)
NEXT, I bought myself a Dooney handbag. I LOVE Dooney & Bourke and am particularly fond of the all weather leather collections. This time though, I opted for the signature series because of the size of bag I was looking for. I wanted a handbag that my camera could fit into and this one works out well. I can actually fit my laptop in it as well. It would get heavy with all that but I could manage and it would be better than carrying several different bags when travelling. Not that I travel that much but if I can get one of those cheap flights to where ever I wanted to go at that very moment, I would hop on it in a heartbeat.
COST: Just over $200. Dang you DR for introducing me to Dooney!
So what do you buy when you have some extra cash?? Do you go crazy like me?? Or are you a penny pincher??
