Retail Therapy

Brrrrr...it's quite freezing here.  On days like this, I like to do a little online shopping since I'm not a big fan of braving the cold.  I'm still sticking with my new year's resolution of not buying stuff we don't need.  However, since I play Santa each year, these were some post Xmas gifts I bought for myself.
Don't you love this little metal mail pouch from Farmhouse Decor Shop?!  For now I have it hanging in the diningroom until I find a proper spot for it.
I was so sad when I missed the twine and scissors deal on Decor Steals a couple of weeks ago.  As luck would have it, Lucketts had it too, so I was able to scoop it up afterall!
These are some finds from my Mom's local Goodwill.  I believe the square cloche is a butter dish from Home Goods.  I'm going to use it as, well, a cloche.  The little salt shaker looked so sad on its lonesome, so I grabbed it for 59 cents.  I'm going to add some lace and make it more pretty.

I have my eye on a few other online treasures...

Love the glass domed piece! That will make for a great cloche.

It's hard to keep from shopping - especially in January when there's nothing better to do! You got some great finds, here, Jeanine. I know you will make that salt shaker pretty with your talented crafting hands!
