Shopping Day

I really didn't feel like doing laundry today, so I headed out to run errands instead. That is always a dangerous situation because I never seem to be able to get out of the stores with just the items I went in to buy. Does anyone else have that problem? Well I picked up quite a few "extras" that I suppose I really didn't need, but couldn't resist.

I went to Homegoods and found these Anna Griffin 12"x12" file folders along with the smaller divider folders. Oh and they also had regular size Cavallini file folders for only $7.99 and a tin of Paris labels for $4.99. Then I found these spools of tiny pom-pon trim in various colors. . .of course I bought pink! There is an Archiver's in the same shopping center so I ran in to see what's new since I haven't been there in a while. I picked up a couple packs of fresh new Basic Grey papers in the Blush and Stella Ruby designs. Both are yummy! The chipboard divided album is from Maya Road and was only $4.99. . .I got the last one they had on the shelf.

Back at Homegoods, I found this shabby chic looking frame on the clearance shelf. It has peely paint and pale touches of aqua. Bought it purely for the color. The paper napkins have a leaf pattern with a sort of script/ledger paper background. . .they will be great to use in a collage. I have a weakness for paper napkins. When I get a new package I usually save a few for my artwork and then use the rest for entertaining.

While at the bookstore looking for this magazine, (which I couldn't find, by the way) I spied the latest issue of Romantic Homes and fell in love with all the luscious photos inside. The whole issue is about Paris style. Think I'll take a little break, make a pot of tea, and get lost in it's pages.
