Weekend + no shopping update (two weeks)

We had a perfect weekend - one rainy day and one sunny day, coffee and croissants at the farmer's market, a bit of cooking, some tentative starts at crafting.

It's officially week two of the shopping hiatus and I'm doing fine. Not to say there hasn't been quite a bit of temptation. I guess I was feeling neutrals last week, based on a look at some of the items I have bookmarked.

1. Clermont boots by Free People.
2. White textured serving bowl from Horne.
3. Smocked silk necklace from Etsy seller tinctory.
4. Lovely winter blankets by Area.
5. Oversized cream bag from Etsy seller moop.
6. Ivory cowl from Phydeaux designs.

    Well, actually it's fine, since I found the boots the most tempting, and then I saw the price and almost fainted. whathehell Free People, whathehell?
