I'm taking some time off from work, but since I have a thousand and one things to keep me occupied at home, I'm not going anywhere. I decided to treat myself to some total non-essentials as a consolation prize for staying put. My reward:

This is a Michelle Armas print on canvas that I've been coveting. It's available at Urban Outfitters. I was able to stack a couple of promotion codes during the online ordering process that knocked the price down to $54.39. Pretty resourceful, heh? The picture is in transit and should arrive on my porch on Tuesday. It's so different than any other artwork that I already have, which is a good thing.


Mary Randolph Carter's new book. Borders sent me an email with a 40% off coupon, thus easing the blow to my checking account.

I spent a couple of hours reading my new book last night and plan on spending some more time with it throughout my staycation.

Of course there are other acquisitions that I've made in the nearly two months since I last posted. For these things I have no justification in getting. However, I have been mostly thrifty in my pursuits. I will try to get back on track with blogging and share what I've been up to.
