My mom likes Marshall's, so we went there on Saturday. I don't usually like Marshall's: I'm always finding things that I like ALMOST enough to buy, but either I don't like them QUITE enough or they're just a LITTLE more expensive than I want to pay. Or it's a brand I've never heard of, so I'm thinking, "Is this a ritzy bar of soap marked way down, or is this a cheap bar of soap that is made to LOOK like a ritzy bar of soap marked way down?" Or I'll find something I like, but it's in every size but the one I need. I find the whole store depressing.
But look what I found there on Saturday!
It's a set of purse accessories: business card holder, lipstick case, and there's also a round compact (not shown) that my mom has because the enamel piece had come unglued and she's gluing it back on for me. (SPOILED MUCH?)
Do I NEED these? No. But the whole set was marked down to $5, and they're satisfyingly heavy, and I....well, it was like my heart reached out for them and grabbed them with grabby little hands. I just WANTED them as soon as I saw them, so they came home with me. I'm going to have to get business cards now, I guess.
And do you notice something about the COLOR of those items? They're Swistle-colored! (= same as the color of the blog background, for those of you reading this in an RSS reader!)
