Sometimes You Have To Treat Yourself...

I treated myself to a little collection of frivolities recently...


 Cotton Candy Flavored Gumballs

Cottage Style and Flea Market Style Magazines


A Set of Matryoshka Nesting Glasses {on discount at Homegoods...totally unnecessary purchase, but I just couldn't resist}


Assorted Vintage Inspired Fabric Yardage from Fat Quarter Shop

I spend countless days {as we women do} gathering the necessary staples for home...I found it high time for some tiny splurges!  Not sure the gumballs were a good idea...they are addicting and my jaw now hurts.  What 35 year old randomly buys gumballs?


I hope you treat yourself today!

XO,
Stacey

Oh, I loved this! You make me want to treat myself! Though I really do it all the time but just call it "business related". Hehe. =) I love all your frivolities and now I'm not sure if I'm craving candy or fabric more. =)

I am totally laughing myself silly. The first thing I thought was mmm...cotton candy. I would so buy those at 38...no less. And while we are on the subject why don't I ever find sweet things like that at my HomeGoods? Have you been to the Etsy store Sew Deerly Loved to see her fabric bundles...you will die!

I saw your home featured on Funky Junk Interiors and instantly fell in love. A wonderful Fairytale indeed. I just bought two Flea Market magazines. One was a garden issue. They are one of my favorites. Your glasses are so cute. I have never seen nesters on glasses. I am now a new follower.
Hugs,
