Friends, I don't formally celebrate any of those gift-giving holidays this time of year, but there's something about the season that makes one want to buy stuff. Am I right?
I won't go into detail about the sewing machine auction I lost yesterday, though if you follow me on Twitter, you've heard the story.
So naturally, when I went to the flea market this morning it was in hopes I'd find some fabulous sewing machine there. But all I saw was this sorry Singer 128. How depressing.
I did pick up a few things, though. I'm a sucker for $3 CD's.
And who can resist rhinestone dangle earrings, perfect for a 1920's evening ensemble, also for $3.
It's pretty easy to buy things for Cathy: she needs so much.
I'd almost forgotten the gift I'd bought for my cousin late last week until I saw the box on my doorstep today. Naturally I opened it immediately -- she won't mind.
Aren't these rhinestone-studded lucite folding glasses (or lorgnettes) the most absurdly glamorous mid-century accessory ever??
Naturally, we all had to try them on. Who do you think wears them best?

They're actually great readers too since their lenses magnify, so they'll be handy when I need to read a menu or thread a needle.
Anyway, friends, I am trying to keep my spending under control and I hope you will support me in that. Still, I could use a pair of bedroom slippers and a few new patterns wouldn't break the bank...
What are hoping that Santa will bring YOU this year?
Have a great day, everybody!
