Festive new cuties......and a purchase I can't wait to get...:)

So I've added a couple more holiday items to my shop. While cleaning my studio I came across these items that I purchased last year....ever do that? Forget that you bought something because you had tucked it away? Of course you have, that's why we're friends! We so "get" that behavior, don't we?

In other news I've been looking for awhile now for one of those awesome old hat train cases...you know the ones, they have a buckle, not a zipper! To me that was one of my criteria in looking for one of these cases, I wanted one that had a latch, not a zipper. To me, having a zipper automatically dates it to the 60's......so NOT the era I was looking for!
So I was on ebay the other day and saw one that made me gasp out loud....it was black...check!
It had a buckle...check! Oh, and my other requirement? It had to have an awesome lining! I know, I don't want much, do I?
So anyway, I came across on on ebay, and she was selling 4 hats along with the case. I wrote her and asked (and remember, you don't get much if you don't ask!) if she would be willing to sell just the case, not the hats. They were o.k., but just o.k.
I told her that I REALLY wanted the case and if she would do a Buy It Now option that I would, well, buy it now!
And she did, and can I just say that when you see the fabric lining inside this case, well, I'm not sure what you're gonna do except beg me to sell it to you, it's that good!

So stay tuned, as soon as I get it, I'll be posting it in all it's glory right here on this blog!

Until then.........

UM, all the time LOL this is the reason my dr has put me on strict orders of decluttering and not bringing home more.
Which is good cuz I got too much already.

Oh I can't wait to see your case. Wish I knew you were looking for one, I have one ready to go :)
