i usually don't gloat about materialistic things but i feel this is a special case! today i recieved my brand new Eleanor keds. i had to special order these cause they didn't have my size in the store so i had to wait extra longer to get them.
i had to get a close up of the inside cause thats my favorite part! i also recieved two books that i've been waiting to buy. i usually wait about a month or so after a book launches because you can get a great discount on a new and or used one from amazon or half.com. i guess i just don't see the point of buying a book brand new when as soon as you have it for over a week it's considered used anyways! i prolly shouldn't of said that outloud seen as i work for a publisher!!LoL
i can't wait to finally get the time to sit down and actually read them. On the note of the "By Hand" book, i also wanted to point out that there is great preview of Faythe Levine’s handmade nation: a documentary about the rise of diy, art, craft, and design, now this is going to be a fantastic documentary, i can't wait till it's done!
so enjoy my little gloating post...i really don't usually have the funds to just blow on shoes and great books because of house hunting and making FB happen and a family (husband and puppy-kitty) to take care of...so when i do get that chance i almost feel like a princess!! (yeah, i'm a big dork)
