Adrienne author of The Rich Life on a Budget recently reminded her readers.
It's something I have done for many years but I admit to being a bit of a snob.
I look for the best quality items and often leave with nothing rather than settle for something of lesser quality or something that is a quick mood lifter.
This week I found a new~to~me wool jacket/coat and two books.
Saint James France makes lovely garments and I swoon when I see them in the high end shop in Sidney.
I very nearly faint at the prices though....
imagine how thrilled I was to actually find a piece in my size, colour preference and at a price that I can live with!
Sturdy fabric which hangs well
yet is soft warm and comfortable to wear
I love how they construct these garments
they feel so good on
maybe it's the sturdiness of the fabrics they use
This can be worn zip open as a coat or closed as a tunic with leggings and boots.
Very versatile and will get lots of wear.
a hardcover book
home decor ~ natural theme
less costly than a glossy magazine
A novel by an English author new to me
who has penned quite a few books
view them here.
I've started into it and am already engaged and captivated by the characters...
looks like I'll be visiting Yorkshire vicariously in the next couple of chapters!
Don't you just love finding a great book
or a super bargain at a shop?
What has been your best and most recent find?

BTW we had a cougar sighted a few blocks from The Humble Bungalow today.
Students were not allowed outside at recess and had to be picked up by an adult after school.
I hope that no one gets hurt.
It makes me a wee bit paranoid walking the streets.
I think I'll take my umbrella with me when I go out
it has a pointed end and I can open it up
and hide behind it!
Meanwhile I'd be dialing 911 and screaming.
Hope that your day went well.
