I feel like I have mentioned this tray before but I'm not sure. Anyway, after watching so much Downton Abbey, I decided I needed an antique wooden tray. So, apparently, did the rest of the world because all the ones I found on EBay were crazy expensive. I went onto to Etsy and didn't have much more luck but I saw this metal tray. I don't know why but I had to have it. It lives on my desk and holds all the stuff I need to get to and deal with.
At the after Christmas sale at Joanne's Fabric, I discovered their porcelain cable knit collection. I immediately bought it all because I loved it and it was crazy discounted. The little churches even light up inside. I didn't pack them up with the other Christmas decorations because I think I can get away with them year round.
I'm not much of a mystery reader but I am a sucker for historic British girl mysteries. Right now I'm all about the Royal Spyness series and the Flavia de Luce series. Thanks to Half.com, I buy all of them for next to nothing. I just don't have any room for them on my shelves.
I swear I'm not going to be one of those crazy old ladies collecting little houses but I find these every time I go into Goodwill. I love these little British houses but I will hold back from getting too many.
One of my Christmas presents was this floor cleaner. The mop always seemed sort of a gross way to clean my floors. This thing cleans the kitchen floor and the hardwoods and sucks up the water right away so the floors are dry. You should see the grossness it collects. I saw this in a commercial and Tim says my eyes lit up like he had never seen. Those dogs track in a lot of gross stuff so I need this.
I just bought myself a new phone case. I bought a pretty generic one when I upgraded my phone last year but I was never in love with it and it was getting worn and dirty. I've been obsessing over these British telephone booth ones on Etsy and I finally just bought myself one. I couldn't be happier with it.
