Do you get stressed out when you are getting ready to travel? I do! I have weird travel dreams about losing my passport, being in Paris without enough time, missing flights, etc... It was no different this time around.
I was anticipating flying with babylouwho, leaving brother and sisterlouwho with mrlouwho for the weekend, doing last minute laundry, dishes and meal prep. It was a lot to get done!! I tend to procrastinate packing as well. I had my bags mostly packed on Tuesday night, so guess what I did on Wednesday morning, before leaving at 3:00 pm for the airport? Shopping!!!
I'm sure I should have been home packing and cleaning, but I had a couple of IMPORTANT things to take care of!
First off, I stopped at Hancock's to pick up some of this awesome burlap printed with black velvet damask.
Darci asked me to pick some up for her.
I may have bought a little extra for me as well. It's just so striking! I love damask anyway, but the texture contrast is amazing! I'm thinking it would make a cool boxy zipper pouch.
Next up, I had to stop at Ross. A few weeks ago I got a call from a very sweet friend:
Friend: Amy, Ross has queen sized Amy Butler sheets for 30$, they are turquoise and yellow and I thought of you! I hid them behind the others if you want to go and get them.
Me: NO WAY!!!
Friend: Well, I'm still out, if you want I can go back and get them for you. You can't even buy that much fabric for $30.
Me: I KNOW!! Yes! Please!
She dropped them off a few days later.
Are you kidding me?!? I love them. And what a great friend!!
A week or so later I went back into Ross looking for birdcages. I found one! So cute! And also saw THE MATCHING COVERLET to the sheets for $35! I stewed about them for a week and had to go Wednesday for fear of someone else buying it up.
And then on further inspection they had a cute twin sized duvet cover. It didn't really match sisterlouwho's bedding though, but it was only $15. And then I realized it was made from her LOVE line that I used for babylouwho's quilt.
I'm so happy with it all! 400 thread count, organic cotton, over 1/2 off the original prices ~ It's almost like thrifting!
I called Kim and told her about and she checked out her Ross and found some too - so hurry out if you're interested!
Have you found any good deals lately?
