Oh My!!! Even I am prepared to say that the Pumpkin Shopping may have gotten slightly out of hand this year! ;) I have reasonably good excuses...I even have someone else to blame ...admittedly he's not quite 17 months old but he did put me under a lot of pressure and I really felt like I was 'up against it' !! ...the 'it' being getting out of the shop before he had a major explosive poohy nappy ....it was a very close call I can tell you! :)
Sooooooo on our First shopping trip the Grand-Bubba and I purchased matching Pumpkin lighty-uppy-ornaments ...I may have added the really cute green glass Pumpkin in tooo ...just to give balance to the basket in one hand and the Grandbaby clinging onto the other hip ... You do need balance in all things ;)
Fortunately ... Bubba and I made it home safely ...despite one of us stinking-to-high-heaven....why do babies smell sooooo bad??? :) hahaha After a clean-up and a change of clothes for the exploding one, I started thinking about a Pumpkin Snow globe that I'd seem but just not had enough hands or space in my basket to pick it up.... Hhhmmmm .... would it really be that bad of a thing to GO BACK to the shop and Buy the Pumpkin Snow Globe????
I'd like to say that that particular days shopping was over and complete .....BUT....
Three 'shops'... but actually only one SHOP, just visited three times...in ONE day ...hehehe
And if it all ended right there we could possibly draw a line under everything and move on. But does my ability to shop ever diminish??? ... The honest answer is just a straight forward, plain ...NO! I'm beginning to think I may have a medical condition or something ...possibly one thats not been discovered yet ! :) And I also suspect its a lifelong condition ...most likely terminal!
Sooooooo Ebay! I really do think that I must be the luckiest Ebay bidder/winner ever! I win all the time ...surely that's not my fault ...some people are fast runners, some people can juggle ...I win on Ebay! :) I'm not too sure how I won these lovely treasures ...but, I'm almost certain it had nothing to do with placing the highest bid ...or anything sordid like money...I'm just lucky! ;) hehehe
Then there was the Autumn/Pumpkin wooden comb-thingies (I think they were originally sheep wool carders) Again very pretty folk Art and just crying out to belong to me! Honest they were!
And to prove that I don't just buy Pumpkins ...
Talking of boxes ...I might need another box for when I pack everything away in November ready for Christmas ...that will make 10 Pumpkin boxes ...do you think hubby will notice that extra one?? EEeeaakk! ...hahahhaha :)
