I'm crazy






Last week a friend (who shall remain nameless because it took her TWO DAYS to remember to tell me about this) told me that the north PX just got a shipment of polish pottery and that they had MY PATTERN!!!!! I could hardly wait to get up there. When I got there, I went a bit crazy. I was so excited that they had so many different things in my pattern!! I got tiny little stirring spoons, a huge cookie jar (or whatever I want to put in it), a deep casserole dish, two pots to plant in (which I plan on using soon to grow some chives and something else, maybe cilantro?? in so that I don't have to buy them anymore), a spoon rest, scoops, and even two coasters!! (those are the two things that look like tiny little plates in the first picture). I won't tell you how much I spent. It was less than what I would spend online for the same stuff (if I could even find it) but more than what I would have spent in Poland. And since I RARELY find my pattern, I felt slightly justified in buying it. But to compensate for my HUGE indulgence, I am on a shopping fast. I'm not going to buy anything online, or at any store. Other than food. I might make an exception for some gifts I want to buy. But as those are for Christmas, I can wait to buy those until next month. So, until my sister gets here (at the end of next month) I am not buying anything. No books, clothes, pottery, nothing. I really hope that I can do it, and am hoping to convince Matt to do the same. Believe it or not, he's worse that I am. He trolls ebay in search of the next bike thing to buy. So, lots of plans to really use my pottery and to cut back and save some money.....wish me luck!!!
