It's Better to Give Than Receive, But Sometimes....

...it's nice to be on the receiving end.  Actually I was on both ends because I gave it to myself!

I'm not a "purse" person or "name brand" person necessarily, but one thing I've been on the lookout for at the thrift, for over a year, is a leather purse by:


Yesterday I found the perfect one! It looks like it's never been used! $6! Leather! 
Maybe it's horribly out of style.  I wouldn't know, so I'm happy.


AND, I picked up a pretty wreath for a "dolla" for the front door.


 I think it looks Christmasy, especially against my reddish door.
  I will add some spirit to it soon.

And don't worry I was monitored as I took my wreath picture.  Nothing gets by Darcy, nothing.


Garage sale here tomorrow at my house with CG.  
We've got to sell the rest of our stuff from the flea market
AND I still have wedding "stuff".

Hope your weekend is fun!

It is so funny - life - we bring things in - we take things out - recycling I guess. I love your purse. sandie

Ann,
What a good find!
The thrift store angel, must have been looking out for you! :)
I like the style of the purse as well, and how nice it was like new!
I also enjoy thrift store shopping, somedays there may be nothing I want to buy, but finding a treasure makes it worthwhile!
The wreath does look very Christmassy on your door!

As a person who works in the retail world (unfortunately) I can definitely say you got a good deal! Fossil is a good sturdy brand and the prices are usually on the high end. The wreath is beautiful as well! Can't wait to have my own home so I can start buying things like this. See you tomorrow :)

Haha Ann, I am a purse person and that was a good price. I just bought a Fossil at Goodwill that is so big three Darcy's could nap in it.
