New Tweed Halston III Makeup Bag


I went out yesterday and saw my favorite Thrift Store had 50% off purses and shoes written on their big outside chalkboard. Now I never can find shoes, because my foot is too wide, but I sometimes luck out on killer purses or makeup bags I can store polish in. So I decided to look around. I saw some great bags, but I already have a great purse I got from them. What I wanted was something to put a lot of polish in. Then I saw it. On the floor back in the back and I immediately sauntered over, as well as a person can casually saunter using a wheelchair.

It was marked at $6.00 and at first I sighed. I checked it, it was in great shape, and I decided I had to try to get it. My favorite worker was at the checkout and I took it up, no one else was in line yet, and I said, “I found this back there, it’s marked for $6.00, but with the sale on purses, I am wondering if you’d let it go for $3.00. If you will I’ll take it.” She thought about it, and I was sure she was about to say no, when she came back with, “Sure, it doesn’t really matter anyway. $3.00 it is.”

I’ve bought a lot of things from them, so I think that helped. She’s walked out a footstool to the car for me before and had one of the guys walk out a TV stand out that I bought. They’ve always got cheap shirts on sale too, and with how my son grew over the five years I’ve known about this store, I’ve bought a TON of those! So here is my new China Glaze storage solution:








In house news, we finally got our loan through its final approval and I am tickled to say that we’re supposed to be closing this week either Thursday or Friday and we’re set to move in, hopefully by next Tuesday. Because of this and needing to pack like crazy, I’ve cut all my nails down, rather than having one or more break on me. 




I apologize for the bad photo, it's early and the sun's not out, so I took this from the kitchen. My nails do still have a touch of length, and it’s my hope they’ll regrow to my previous length quickly. So finally, I’ll be able to set up my garage nail station! I will be wearing Layla Ocean Rush for the closing if you were curious, and I will do a blog entry on that manicure later this week. For now that’s all, I wish you all very happy polishing!
