Hello Beautiful People....
I had a wonderful opportunity to go out ''shaaapping'' ( hear the operatic singing??) today! yeahaw! lolol.....been a while! [can you tell?] And I picked up basic necessities, some kim chee veggies, and a few extras.....and those ''extras'' are why I feel pretty today. It is truly nothing special, but you know, when its been A WHILE since you could go out and purchase ANYTHING, whatever you get feels awful special! Well today I did that and I felt so pretty because I [didn't even wash them first!] but put them on right after I got home and showered, and put the flowers in vases, then all the food stuff, so today was another good day! Tomorrow I begin sewing some pants, as I picked up the elastic I will need for a skirt [inspired from today!] and the drawstrings for the drawstring pants....sooooooo....will be on the machine a few days....but here are a few pics.....wish I took those beautiful kinds of pics that so many on bloggyland do, but I just don't have the inclination to get into it.....I feel so lucky to just be able to take pics and upload them so easily in the first place! That alone for me is a miracle! and still alot of fun.
As ''fate'' would have it, whenever I want hydrangeas for fresh cut flowers I can never find them locally. And today after I paid for my things at the register I walked to the exit but the one closet to me was a one way in and I had to go around an entire display to the end of the next register to walk out the one door for exit, and on the way out, there they have the ''subliminals''.....which are those items put by the registers for spontaneous buying, so rigged it all is, and sometimes it works! Well, they had fresh flowers, beautiful huge white hydrangeas and blue ones too! and they had roses, and I was a bit shocked at how nice they were, but I didn't want to spend $20. on it so painfully left it there. Welllll........as I did my other shopping and I was feeling good about getting all those little things off my shopping list, I began to appreciate those hydrangeas more and more, especially if they dried while in the vase which they can do sometimes, so I decided to be a lush and go back and get them.....as fate would have it. So putting these beauties into their vases were the first thing I did when I got home, and took some pics.......they are so gorgeous, these pics do not do them justice.
I didn't even stop there, lolol, while I was at Doris' The Italian Market, I picked up some pretty pink mini carnations....what a lovely simple thing, and they look so pretty with the hydrangeas!
These are for my room.......love them.
my Kim Chee ingredients which I will make in a day or so, this is amazing stuff, so healthy. Its a fermented vegetable that is good for positive intestinal flora, and my recipe is divine, been making it for a few years now and never run out, and I need to make a batch now and will post the recipe and how its made...so delish with every meal as they have it in Korea, and other Asian countries, but it is really really yummy!
and my ''extras''.....the pretties..... from TJ Maxx......a pair of pants with a bandeau waist, so comfy love those, and a Ralph Lauren sweet cotton floral nighty and a beautiful lacy robe.
These pants are amazing comfy, elegant and soft and I have to go back and get the white ones!!
My market baskets today. I think they are so pretty, and whenever I shop with them, the ladies at the registers all know me and always tell me how pretty it is and how they love to see it, so Euro just like Italy and France they say........I love them and never use anything else.
abundant beauty.....what more can I ask for?
well I can actually think of a few things, lolol, but for now, I'm ok.
Will post on the pants when they are done and the Kim Chee recipe and how its made.....
thanks for being here! love you all!
