The Packages Came!

Since several of my packages came this weekend, I thought I would show you guys what I’ve purchased recently!


I bought these boots from Wanted Shoes on Tuesday and they arrived on Friday- I mean, talk about fast shipping!  Not only was shipping free, but these were also on sale, so I got them for $40!  I purchased them to replace my favorite boots which broke over winter break and I think I made a good choice.  The knee-high length is great and the boots are sooo comfortable.  At first, I wasn’t too keen on the finish of the boots, which looks sort of like crinkled leather, but it is definitely growing on me and I figure as I wear them that sheen will fade.  Also, they have a sort of western feel which is different for me and which I like.

I bought both of these items from Cait’s etsy shop.  I discovered her blog and shop through Pay it Forward 2011 (I am one of her recipients) and I’m so glad that I did because she makes/sells the cutest stuff!  I can’t wait to wear my purchases and you should definitely check out her shop!

This last picture is more of a teaser because I don’t want to give away too much!  I’ve decided what I’m going to make for my Pay it Forward 2011 participants and the yarn I’ve chosen finally arrived today. I’ve been itching to get started, so off I go!  Hope you guys are having a good weekend! :)

    Hey Nnenna!
    I am a sucker for black boots too! I need to branch out and buy different colors. :)
    And I loooove the owl necklace. I used to have one but it broke. And I haven't found one yet that is as nice to replace it.
    Thanks for the comment on my blog. Hope you're doing well!
