Still 'Suffering' With That Halloween Bug
. . . and enjoying every minute of it (LOL)!
I didn't do much last week, as DS was home here from Afghanistan and we just wanted to spend all the time we could with him, doing whatever he wanted to do. DH even took every day off from work for it, which made it seem like a vacation for us all. We hiked in the nearby Jemez Mountains one day to see the start of the Fall foliage. Went out to lunches and dinners a few times. We celebrated his birthday, almost a month late, but it was great anyway. Cooked out on the grill. Made lots of yummy foods with our fresh batch of green chiles and spent lots of time just talking and being together. It was a wonderful time that flew by much, much too quickly. It didn't include shopping, though ;^D
But, yesterday (after he'd left )DD and I pulled out the Halloween box and then spread out this year's new items to ogle and plan where we'd put everything. She's 16 y/o and, after Christmas, Halloween is her favorite holiday. It was a fun afternoon! We decided that we had enough for lots of good decorating now and I should probably stop buying (LOL). BUT . . . this morning I opened up an email from Lillian Vernon and they had an offer I just couldn't refuse: $3.99 flat rate shipping PLUS 10% off your entire order with this code:
. . . but it expires this evening, I think.
I found these darling felt witch boot stockings, 6 total, for only $2.98 on sale! They're not very large (9 1/4"T x6"W), but I love the designs! I cut three similar-sized ones out of craft paper to see if they'd work for a project I had in mind, and they do. Sooooo, with the discounted shipping and 10% off ( 30-cents isn't much, but it was something), my order cost me $6.67. Not bad for 6 of them, I think! Here's a pic off their website of the three different designs:
They now have a similar offer for their Christmas items, but there are restrictions on how much you have too spend to get it, unlike their Halloween offer today.
