He knows me sooooo well! He brought me an assortment of yummy different chocolates, and 9 Kg of bonbons I had ordered from a wholesale company ahead of time and had shipped to my BOL house. "My name is Loretta and I have a problem..."
|I'm SERIOUS about my candy!!|
I wanted to change my old kitchen curtain. I had red and white stripe tea towels (my kitchen curtain of choice) hanging from tension rods and clip rings. I bought these to use at Christmas time, but as they aren't really Christmasy and because I'm lazy, I'd left them up.
1. Since my hubs was in England...
2. Since Cath K just started her summer sale...
3. Because a set of two tea towels was on sale for 8 pounds...
I sent him shopping! They didn't have the prints I wanted, so my hubs sent me photos of what they had and I picked 6 sets of these:
From the photos my husband sent, I loved both sets and felt I could use all of them as curtains over time. I'm not wasting these babies on drying dishes!
When they arrived, while I liked both sets, I LOVED the first set! Why would I go for classy when I can pick kitch? I'm one classy kitch!
These are definitely cheery, and if you figure 8 pounds x 6 sets = 48 pounds which approx = 100 USD (EEEEK not so cheap you may be thinking), but if you figure thats for TWO different sets of curtains...thats only $50 for the 3 windows, so they are kind of cheap and very very cheery!!!! Yes, this is definitely how my brain works. Creative math, no punctuation, rationalization without logic, Yes thats me!
Look at how cute the details of these tea towels are:
So I now love my new curtains and have saved the rest of the tea towels in my Cath K stash.
I've been reinvesting most of the money I've made from my antique booth into new/more furniture to paint/sell, but I had to buy myself a little English treat!! I ordered these online from a Canadian supplier:
How cute are these??? I can hardly wait for fall!!! Only kidding!!!
Have a great day, and may it be cheap and cheery!
