I think I really like it, although The Boy walked in and said, “are we going Southwestern style now?”
Normally I’m an Etsy kind of girl, but sometimes I stray over to Ebay to pick up a few things I can’t seem to find thrifting. I really hate the whole bidding process (I’m so impatient and it stresses me out) but if you stick with it sometimes you can get a great deal.
Vegetable Afghan Kilim Rug (10×3 ft)
This is a victim of the great Kilim (or is it Kelim?) hunt. Finally, I got one – its going to be a runner for the entryway.
This is really turning into a blog about shopping and I am the worst guilty consumerist. I did the whole Mint thing to track my spending…yikes. Over the last 3 months I spent the same amount on vintage crap for my house as I have on my mortgage. I always thought I was pretty thrifty…but it I guess it adds up. At first it looked like I was super charitable since all the thrift store shopping got listed as “Charity”. I fixed that and now my pie chart just looked like two big dueling colors: Mortgage vs. Shopping.
I need to go on a better savings plan. If I want to do any big ticket renos (which really I don’t, its probably not worth it in the long run in my neighborhood) thats going to be the only way without going into more debt.
Poop. Being fiscally responsible sounds boooooring.
