No shopping update (week 5)

I powered through this last week without any major temptations to buy. Of course, I did receive some little gifts, and that was nice.

I'll admit that I purchased one thing, but luckily it was thrifted and thus doesn't break my shopping hiatus according to the rules I made up in the beginning. And, it was irresistible. P, you are completely to blame for this, but I kind of love you for it.




Pictures are from Thorwald Home

Seriously, how cool is it? It's a fortune telling vintage tea cup from the 1930s. I can't wait till it comes to live with me, at which point you will probably all grow sick and tired of seeing it photographed again and again. Check out the rest of Genevieve's blog and her new Etsy shop, Thorwald Home, to see her other amazing finds.

  6. You got them! Too quick you are.

    But then, you stopped me from buying non-essentials... So really I should thank you.

    Post lots of pics so I can admire them anyway.

  7. I love you for saving me from myself - and for saving my relationship. If I bring home another teacup, Fauxhawk will surely divorce me.

    My Greek grandmother knew how to read fortunes from tea leaves and coffee grounds. How cool is that? I'm sort of tempted to learn how to do it myself.
