Today I am showing a top and black slacks. The top is one I bought and hadn't worn. But I had order one of the bubble necklaces in peach. This is what I got. I thought about returning it(to China) and decided it has a Fall color cast to it so I'm keeping it. I've started hanging my statement necklaces up in the closet where they are more visible with the clothes. And I noticed that the top and the necklace look totally great together. Yesss! I'm pleased that I kept it.
I mentioned Charming Charlie's. I am including a pic of a bag I recently bought there. The bags I have gotten there are not leather. But the styles and craftsmanship are quite nice. And I pay no more than $40. Nice.
I decided to learn to crochet. And I am slowly learning. I took a couple of classes but I'm a very solitary person so the rest of the learning process is going to be done here at home. I suspect that would be harder if it weren't for Pinterest and YouTube. Sometimes I don't know what I would do without a computer.
Anyway, this time I did buy a couple of books, a starter kit, and a couple of skeins of yarn. To practice with. And that was all. I'm extremely proud of myself for that. I have tendencies that are sort of compulsive. I see something on Pinterest and I want it. I have actually ordered 2 bags I saw on the site. And i like them. But that is all. The site has a lot of food stuff on it and I'm always wishing I could have some of the sweets. I wish I were less suggestible. And the dogs. The dogs that need homes or have been hurt or are just gorgeous make me want them all. All of them. Every one of them.
The books I've been using to find out why I'm nuts are interesting. I'll share some of the info from them in the future. I have already begun to deal with a few of my foibles. For instance, if something bad happens, I automatically assume the worst will follow and get really stressed. My children are glad that I'm getting a handle on that and don't call them all upset. And I'm glad because it's exhausting.
And I'm also pleased that I can quit buying clothing for a while because I lost some weight and don't try to make my body look better with new clothes. And this planning outfits is more fun anyway.
I'm enjoying the support I have gotten from followers. Thanks.
