I have acquired some new items in the past couple of weeks
and I thought you might like to see them.
That sounds much better than;
“I’ve been spending money on myself and want to show it off!”
I mentioned in my wardrobe post this week that I have
a new camera bag. My dear Mother-in-law gave me some money
for Christmas and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.
I have been eyeing these camera bags for awhile -
It took me awhile to decide which style I wanted, but finally
my common sense stepped in and I went with the Rose bag in black -
I was really considering the yellow – but I wanted something that I could
use with absolutely everything. So.. black. I know, kind of safe and boring.
But seriously gorgeous!!
I have already used it a couple of times, and everyone thought it was my purse.
There is room for my camera plus lens’s and filters,
and my wallet and most of the other things I usually carry in my purse.
It has a nice long shoulder strap too, although you can’t see it here.
The inside has an adorable floral print, and plenty of padded pieces that can be
moved around and arranged however you want.
It makes me happy..
It not only keeps my baby safe, it looks good at the same time!
Jo-Totes did not ask me to write this, nor do they even know who I am-
I am simply sharing this with you because I like it.
However, if they wanted to do a little giveaway here I would say yes!
The next new thing we got was a wall oven.
We bought this old house 21 years ago, and are still using the oven
that came with it. That was already old when we got it.
In the interest of transparency and being real, I am going to show
you a picture of it. You may want to take small children and pets
out of the room before you look at it. You have been warned..
(Insert creepy music)
I am sure you will agree that we were way overdue for a new one!
And don’t say it just needs a good cleaning.. I have tried!
Plus, it didn’t always work correctly. I have been putting up with it for years,
and finally had just had enough after the holidays.
So my husband took it out.
And you can see some of the old colors this kitchen had before we got it!
And, once again, we see my dire need of a different finish on my cabinets..
When the new oven arrived, my husband informed me that it was the wrong size.
I was overjoyed..
But my husband is a ninja with tools, and he made it work..
I love that guy
Isn’t she beautiful!
And it looks like she was made to go there!
And look at this!
A clock! And a timer!
And see those 2 little words in the left hand picture?
Not clear/off, my old oven did that even when I didn’t ask it to..
I mean the Self-Clean.. I have never had that!
I also got some new glasses last week.
I love them in person, but hate them in pictures..
I can’t explain it.
That is why you are only getting a small peek at them -
On the plus side, now that I have them I can see my pictures…
So I guess I’ve got that going for me
Aging.. it is just a laugh a minute..
Some of you may remember that I changed jobs a couple of months ago -
I still work at the same church, but in a different department.
The change involved moving to a different area of the building.
Even though it has been a couple of months, it still feels new!
I thought you might like to see my cubicle -
As you know, I like to decorate stuff..
I put curtains in the opening so I can have privacy when I need
to get some work done. There is a window on one side that I hung a coffee filter wreath on.
It is actually quite cozy and I am sooo comfortable in it!
There you go – some of the new stuff I have going around here.
Right at that time of year when I always think about getting rid of stuff…
How about you? Anything new in your life?
