My last post was about liking thrift store items and buying them even though I didn’t need them.
This post is proof that I do have some self control! As you may or may not know, I love elephants. I have them everywhere. I saw a picture that would go nicely in my living room (I’d have to remove other pictures from the wall to make it fit). I took a photo of it because I knew I would walk away from it. I knew that I’d be moving into the realm of “silly” if I bought it!
The thing that pushed it over the top was not the shiny back ground but the fact that it was in 3D.
It is for the best. I likely would have taken my eye out with a tusk if I bought it and hung it!
Not photographed was a brush and mirror set I almost bought. I thought it looked a bit Victorian and would add to my sewing room decor but, once I got to the cash register, I decided it didn’t. So no photo.
As far as Victorian stuff…my video restrictions actually had me using time to mend the skirt I ripped during my last costume event.
I still need to fix a bunch of hooks and eyes on the bodice before I can put it away. I wish I had ladies maid to deal with that kind of thing!
