Sick and shopping {not sick of shopping}

I got myself a cold last week and can’t seem to kick it.  So I am going to the Doctor today hoping he can fix me up so that I am healthy and more energetic for Thanksgiving. To pass the time, I have been catching up on blogs, pinning a TON oh and…shopping.  I thinking being sick is going to put me in the poor house if I don’t get well soon.

{I would love to say I was doing some pre-Christmas shopping for my family and friends but that would be a lie. I was totally selfish and bought for just me}

Wanna see what I bought?

First up is the beautiful Caitlin McGauley print.  She is one talented artist!  I just fell in love her fashion illustrations

I guess technically this was a gift, because the proceeds goes to the hurricane Sandy Victims.  Couldn’t pass that up!

I must be on an illustration kick because I bought this one by Jessica Rae Summer

{maybe this picture depicted the way I was feeling and that is why I was drawn to it}  This girl is ONE talented artist as well.  Check out these chairs she hand painted for the DIFFA Dining by Design event with Kelly Sutton of SuttonHouse {one of my favorite designers!}

My next shopping splurge was at  JCrew Factory.  How in the heck did I not know about them having a factory store on line?  They are having a 30% off plus free shipping.  Now how could I pass that up?

So I got myself one of these

Leopard Clutch

A leopard clutch.  I never use clutches, probably cause I never go out to any formal functions, but I couldn’t resist.  This might come in handy…someday

And these leopard flats

Notice a trend here?  Yeah, I’m a sucker for anything leopard.

Here’s to hoping I get better soon because I am eyeing these pretties as well

I have been looking for a new card holder and this one fits the bill

I think I might go broke being sick with a computer and a credit card!

I did go out and buy my Thanksgiving food items and a stop at World Market {I blame it on the ibuprofen’s making me think I was better} and set my table for Thanksgiving.  So now all I have to do is get better, cook a little and wait for the UPS guy to come.  Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!
