A Spring Fling

The glittery retro-look Easter card came from was in their dollar bins up by the registers.

It's been a big problem for me to leave the house and enter a retail establishment the past several days. I have a serious case of cabin fever. So, so, so serious. I went into Sam's Club Friday to pick up dog food, water, a couple things like that. I hardly ever look at the clothing because for years I've not seen anything that calls my name in there. But it just happened that as I walked down a main aisle, I spotted stacks of these gloriously pastel tops and whipped out of the piles my three favorite colors and brought them home with me. I went to Wal-Mart for toothpaste and some cording needed for a purse zipper pull and was walking by the men's department and saw a pink gingham shirt (!!!) called out to me.

Saturday I ran an errand, stopped in at a friend's house and on the way home I thought I'd stop at the drugstore for a couple of life's little necessities and on my way I walked by all these PEEPS...IN PASTELS...purple, pink, green, yellow, orange! And jellybeans!

Marshmallow-y sugariness in such sweet colors!
I. Am. Hopeless.

I think I see a theme here. I better stay home for the next month and a half. It's getting ridiculous!

Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog. First time I have stepped on the political limb. I was thinking of starting another blog - just for venting politically. Just visited yours and became a follower. Will be back.
Love the blouses. I too have been uninspired by clothing.
