My sweet friend...you are NOT alone! Most of us out here are in the same boat. Not to worry. Shop while you can because one day you will be having to buy baby clothes, school clothes..groceries for a family, etc, etc. etc. I say..ENJOY! You see, the difference between us beside VAST age, is that I STARTED life from 17having to buy things that were needed and very seldom things I wanted. Then when the children grew up..it was my turn! You don't have to wait that long. Have fun, Allison. Just don't get in debt. That would be my only caution. Have a wonderful day!

Girl, I wish I could help you.I think im worse than you. Now that is sad hehe. I love everything you bought. I collect teacups and the spoons are beautiful. Im also a bird nest freak.
Enjoy your items =)

bj said...

Good morning, Allison..
Oh, my....you did buy some beautiful things. I absolutely love those little tiny teacups.
I seem to take my shopping sprees by spells. I will go forever and not find anything I really want..then, all at once, there's things EVERYWHERE that I just HAVE to have. I have my house full enuf now that I REALLY have to love something before I will buy it.
Seems if you get TOO much, things don't stand out as much.
Take care, dear one..

Cathy said...

Oh...how much fun!!! I wish I could go shopping with you!!! I love people who know what they want and just buy it!!! Everything you bought is darling...and sooo you!!! The teacups are to die for...you have quite the collection!!! I bet your place is beautiful!!!

Have a wonderful day in beautiful Ca.!!!

Barb said...

Hey I hope you didn't buy all this in one day! I love love love that antique looking wire clock, the mini white shelf is just the prettiest thing and your frenchie tray!!

Which girl doesn't love a good sale right?

Happy shopping!

Rechelle ~Walnuthaven Cottage~ said...

LOL! Okay, so it's tough to resist a sale, but you got some great stuff. All of it's great but that mini shelf really speaks to me. I'd love to find something like that. I've a small space next to my upper kitchen cabinets that doesn't quite line up with the bottom cabinets and something like those mini shelves could even them out a bit. I know, I'm stressing over a weird thing.
I hope your day is going great!

The Whispering Poppies said...

Everything is sooo pretty! I LOVE the tussie mussie with roses!

Our beaches will be SWAMPED as soon as Memorial Day comes... I'll take photos again then. There will be so many people there, you won't even see any sand on the beach! lol

Rosemary said...

As long as you are enjoying what you bought. If you get tired of stuff have a garage sale, make some money and buy more stuff.
I don't think you are so bad.
You shop at Marshall's etc.
Who can resist a sale?
Not me.
Have a great day!

Karen said...

I want to go shopping with you!!! Where did you find it all?
I must admit, I'm a shopahaolic too. Today I bought the most beat-up ugly china hutch at the GOodwill Store. It was originally $200, and I was looking at it. Then for some reason some sane person decided that was just ridiculous, that if they want to sell it, they need to price it right. So it went down to $99. I kept looking at it for a few more weeks. Today I go in, and while I'm standing there the announcement came over the loud speaker "Remember shoppers! Today's lucky tag color is blue. Anything with a blue tag on it is half price!"

SOLD! My husband is gong to pick it up on the way home from work.

I have never refinished a big piece of furniture before, so this one will be interesting. But if I mess it up - hey it was sonly 50 bucks!
My kinda deal! LOL

So - I hear what you're saying about the "somebody stop me - please" thing. LOL
Have a great day!

Allison, you really got some goodies! Love the pics...

Shelia said...

Hi Alli! Oh, what pretties you've found. Well, Dear One, I have the same problem you do! I just don't know why I can't stop buying things either! It must be a virus going round! LOL
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Erin said...

oh my you did find some lovely goodies! I think we all have the same weakness :) The Farm Chicks book is awesome and Serena told me that Costco has picked it up as well. she was such a doll!

Terry said...

I really don't know where your finding all this great stuff.
Try to sell anything you don't want or give it away.
In the mean time please just enjoy yourself your young have fun go with it.
When you become a Mom everything changes and you kind of loose interest in these things as your more in tune with diapers,bottles,doctors visits,babysitters,finding the right place to live,so on and so forth.
So live it up !
Don't go into debt ,but simply have fun as you can.
You do have a talent for finding great things.You have a wonderful sense of style.
Have a fantastic week.
Thank you for sharing all the fabulous photos.

Sares said...

I'm sure you bought ALL of these things on sale for dirt cheap right?LOL! I say if you can afford it, go for it. And if you can't, go for it to a smaller degree. I know I sometimes buy things I don't need too, but it's so much FUN. I love the pink candle holders!

Janie's World said...

You found some great items! I love the blue urn, so different.

Cindy Shea said...

I have one question...WHERE are you finding all these great treasures? I burned out all of my resources here in southern cali.
