I do not generally overspend at this time of year...in fact, I try not to overspend at any time.
In the spirit of frugality I purchased a very inexpensive cashmere sweater from the GAP.
I spent just over $300 on a similar cardigan only to have it pill so badly that I needed to use the sweater shaver gadgety-thing-ma-bobber ( I only use the technical terminology) and it wore thin in spots and looked decidedly shabby.
Shabby is great for furniture but not so much in garments.
and the store (grrr!) I purchased it from didn't want to take it back even though I had my original receipt and I considered myself regular clientele...(not so much any longer)
The clerk mentioned that all cashmere pills...not so...my Scottish made Johnson sweater, a gift form Mr. HB, has been a superior sweater and continues to be so after 5 or 6 years and is as new.
a touch of black
I love this over a white shirt or a white Tee with pearls
a touch of pink...
a touch of white
that can be shaped
around a wreath or in a vase
I like all white lights
twinkling and sparkling
in a glass of champagne.
a touch of pink
a touch of blue
a touch of yellow
In a previous post I posed the question asking about your favourite books
and thank you all for your suggestions.
I have 3 waiting for me...
