My Latest Obsession & an Impluse Buy

Today I spent a few minutes on Instagram and Twitter, mainly to see what’s up with Palaye Royale. That band and its truly kind and inspiring members brighten my every day with their words and music.

And the images! Check out this one of drummer Emerson Barrett holding a stuffed elephant.

How Adorable is This?
This young musician is also an extraordinary artist. And he just came out with his own line of quality sketchbooks. Guess who spent money she really couldn’t afford on the Artful Dodger book pictured below?

I Find His Intricate Creations Quite Hypnotic
But I figured I deserve a treat. SO keeps buying unnecessary stuff for an often expensive hobby, after all. And art of any kind is therapeutic to me, just as Emerson admits, himself a bit reclusive. I feel so fortunate to have met him last month as he is the first in the band to seclude himself after a show.

And the book has seventy pages! That’s not so bad for $30, is it? Let’s just not talk about the $10 shipping fee. Okay?

Have you bought yourself a treat lately?

  3. I guess it counts I've bought nice paint for the living room, hall and front door. That's for me, right? Also, framed some paintings I've been meaning to get done.
    Next weekend though starts my "buy for me" season! The city wide garage sale and Master Gardener's Spring Fair! I hope they have unusual mints and other herbs.

  4. You deserve a treat. I buy little things for myself often, not $40 worth , but only because I spend way too much on the cats :)

  5. It sounds like a lovely purchase to me. Sometimes you just have to indulge yourself. And, no, one should never factor shipping into decisions like that. The cost of shipping can be too depressing at times.
