Wow, what happened to Monday and Tuesday??

So, what was the last 'nice' thing you did for yourself? Did you splurge on something? Treat yourself to an item you've been wanting? Or maybe you splurged on time for just YOU!?? We need to remember that ME time more often and don't feel guilty about doing good things for yourself. You more than deserve it.

I splurged on a pair of scissors! shocked tongue OK, I can hear many of you thinking...a pair of scissors??? OK??? Big deal...a pair of scissors. But I'm a quilter and sewer and having a great pair of very sharp scissors is essential. On my best pair of fabric scissors I tied a black ribbon on the handle. If anyone uses them black is the appropriate But these are tiny scissors, embroidery scissors than must be sharp and be able to trim fabric as well. I've had many pair over the years but they just don't last because they were cheap ones. What I wanted was some made by Gingher...the Rolls Royce of scissors. I was looking around on ebay one evening last week and there were exactly what I wanted at about 1/2 the price including shipping! So yesterday my little package came in the mail and I'm still smiling. Now, all I need to do is find another black ribbon for this pair. smilewinkgrin

What's your 'nice' thing you've done for YOU?

Hey Chutzie,

I use to embroider so I know what you are talking about. It has been years though. Never did make a quilt, cut out the squares, but didn't put them together. I remember my mom and grandmother though making quilts all the time. Her in the north where I live, quilts are essential in the winter.

The last good thing that I did for myself was bring my puppy home. I am so happy with her. She is a handful, but a sweet baby.

Great topic! We do have to do some ME things once in a while. God knows we do enough for everybody else... I think it is in our personalities.

Hugs, Karen

Chutzie, I envy your sewing ability. One of my friends is a quilter and has a tatoo
of a spool of thread and a needle that says "Born to Quilt". You might consider that smilewinkgrin
Karen, a puppy is a wonderful gift to oneself.
My recent purchase was a comfy pair of shoes. I like to wear slides with cushy insoles.
Hugs, Robin

Great topic!  I have to say it took me many months to make the decision because it felt too indulgent and expensive. I finally took the plunge and bought a pkg of massages from my long time massage therapist.  Even tho I've gone to her for many years, it was very sporatic and guilt would get me when I paid.  But I finally decided I'm worth it because it really makes me feel better and since I have so little good health, this is something that is good for me.
The deal was to buy 10 massages and get one free.  I went for the first one yesterday and loved it!

The last nice thing I did for myself was spend a little bit of money on a new book. It is the second in a trilogy that I am reading. My hubby gave me the money, and I usually use money he gives me on things we need, but I decided to splurge a little bit and buy a book. It is really good so far.

I went overboard this week, I bought myself a new pair of sneakers on JC Penny's clearance rack (real cheap) for work, 2 new
paperbacks as I love to read and took myself to breakfast with my son and his girlfriend, then got my Izuzu an oil change and
fixed the muffler. First time I've splurged in a long time. (Got my tax return!!!)

The last thing I did was buy a new purse and wallet.  My old purse was six years old and was really a mess!  I love Stone Mountain leatherbags so I found one.  It was $80 but it had 40% off that!  Then, there was an additional 15% off because I was a senior. 
The leather wallet was $25, with 40% off and the additional 15% off, too!  Then I had a $50 gift card from that store that I had carried around for over a year!  Bottom line?  I got both the bag and the wallet for under ten dollars!  Now THAT'S the type of shopping I just love to do!
