Lots of exotic and mysterious packages arriving often. He just laughs!)

So glad you visited me so now I have a new blog to look at! I got a great deal on my harlequin doormat. It's a Ballard Designs mat (LOOOVE BALLARDS) that I found at a garage sale for $5 brand new. It sells for about $30 in the catalog. I was excited to get it!

Thanks for stopping by!

I usually go for flowers or a magazine when I want to treat myself so I'd spend that 25 the same way (except for shoes)
