I have two new favorite things right now that I seem to want to wear every day. I got the necklace a few weeks back from an antique store ($5) and then just added the bead myself. And the boots were a lovely little post-Christmas sale pick me up. I must say that I saw the boots pre-holiday madness and I told myself I needed to just wait. I couldn’t afford them. And for once, I actually listened to myself so I waited. Having received a little extra holiday cheer in the form of a few greenbacks, I thought I would press my luck to see if they still any left. Wouldn’t you know it, there was one pair left and in my size! AND they were 40% off!!! So with my gift certificate they cost me $1.26. Not bad.
