Original title, isn’t it? ;o)

I have a small confession to make:  I’m a sucker for something with a bee on it.  A little bit before Christmas I was looking through the Country Curtains catalog and came across some wonderful lace curtains that had the cutest little honey bees on them.  I managed to hold out until this week when I just couldn’t take it anymore and I bought them:

Aren’t they pretty?  I decided that this purchase was okay because #1 they make me happy, #2 Country Curtains is a local company (the bad thing?  They’re a bit overpriced – but I’m too impatient to wait for the next seconds sale which is like months away) and #3 I’m seeing the light at the end of the tax preparation tunnel (praise be to the GSD).   I took the time to go to the actual store in Stockbridge to buy them because I couldn’t justify $12 for shipping – even though that seems like a low price to pay to avoid the tourist mecca that is Stockbridge.  ;o)

In knitting news, I think I’ve decided on buttons.  Thank you all for your complements on my sweater (and me – you’ll make a girl blush, ya know) and all your votes on the buttons.  You’re going to have to wait ’til next week to see what I decided, though!

Have a great weekend!
