Can you say compulsive shopper?




Hi everyone! Today I hit the mother load!!!!!!!! I went to my favorite gift shop in a small town in Peninsula. It's called the Yellow Trading Company. She has the best holiday collectible's. She opened her doors today at 10 a.m. All holiday stuff was 50% off. Well can you guess who was the first one in the door? Yep! That's right! ME!!!!! I am so excited with all my new goodies. It's to bad I won't get to enjoy them that much. But boy will I have a good time next year.

Well I am embarrassed to say I went back a second time! Yes, you did hear me correctly! I couldn't help myself. When I came home and displayed everything, it looked beautiful. Honestly I needed more! He! He!!

I just love stuff!!!!! You know stuff!!!!

Lucky, luck girl! You DID hit the mother load. Love that little snowman guy up front and those bottle brush trees. Gotta love those after Christmas sales! You have a great eye for collecting.

Hey Melissa and Lori, You guys would of gone nuts in that store. It's a good thing we don't live in the same town. Could you imagine. He! He! It would be like in the movies. Me tripping Melissa and knocking you down Lori. Just kidding.

Lori I love the Santa's you made this year. I really wanted some like that myself. Also those trees you have next to them are great. I got three feather trees. One big one and two smaller ones. Kinda green and flocked. And count them one, two three big standing Santa's. Not including all the Bethany Lowe goodies.

Melissa those snowman are Bethany Lowe stuff. I like alot of her stuff this year. And who says you can have enough bottle brush trees!!!!

Thanks for stopping by ladies.

Kim, you're probably right, but I would have pushed you aside, not tripped you back... just kidding.
Are three of your new Santas by Vickie Smyers? I love her work!
Is the snowman with red ball on his neck (he's so sweet) by Debbee Thibault?

Trees, trees... in my opinion, one can never own too many! I think your feather tree is a beauty!!!It's very similar to one I own... green with the lighter green tips (now wishing mine was flocked!)

I want to go to that store soooooooo badly!!!

Big Hugs, Lori

Kim, I forgot to mention, your home is gorgeous and the perfect backdrop for such pretty pieces!

Hey Lori, Boy you have a good eye! Those are Vickie's Santa. I loved all 3. Just had to have them. The tiny little snowman is not a Debbee Thibault. It's a Bethany Lowe! I love Debbie's stuff. But way to pricey for me. It's seem we have very similiar taste. I know you would of loved this store. Buying that stuff at full price is highway robbery. But when you get it for 50% off. It's a steal.

Thanks for the compliment on my house.

Hugs Kim

Debbee's stuff it way outta my league price wise too... but, whenever you decide to purge (not that you will) you know where I am ;)

Hi Kim!

You always say the nicest things & I truly appreciate it!!!

Best,
Chris

Chris, I am glad you added the music back. It just wasn't the same without it. I like to listen to your choices.

You rock! and soft rock! Well you know what I mean.

Hi Kim, thanks for brightening my day or should I say blog. You say the nicest things. Your blog looks sweet & magical too!

We are busy working on our my art book's flash website. Soooooooo much to do, it's 24/7 non stop from here on out for that special fantasy Halloween art book. It's finally taking shape & I will link it to my blog(s) so you'll be able to find it easily & see it's transformation as well...

I can't believe the work you have done on your blog, it's wonderful. But I think I need to take a break from mine, NOT (LOL)!!! It's so much work that I'm going cross eyed... Yet I'm obsessed with making my blog a fun & whimsical pass through & link to more fantasy flights & tours. As the TV News & Mass Media say it's the billboards of the future for entrepreneurs.

HAPPY NEW YEAR WITH LOVE & BLESSINGS OF HEALTH, WEALTH & HAPPINESS, LYNDY

Hi Kitty,

I can't believe another year has gone by. It went way to fast for me. There are never enough hours, days, weeks in a year for me.

That store was the best. Too many things to choose from. But I love all the treasures I got. That store would of been right up your alley.

Looking forward to many chats in EHAG. Have a wonderful New Year.

Kim
