spoil yourself

hello hello :)
i hope you are all having a lovely Tuesday. mine started (once dropping the girls at school) with a quick trip into Coles to grab a few things, and i spotted these Lisianthus. so i bought myself a bunch, as well as some for a friend i was meeting for coffee. they are so soft and pretty. very 'rose' like i think. i am loving them in a few of my milk glass vases.

oh and i managed a trip to IKEA yesterday. with another friend :)
and we had the best time. coffee. shopping. lunch and more coffee. another wizz around to see if we had forgotten anything. and we had. so more purchasing ;)
and there was lots of new stock. check out these gorgeous teatowels. they also came in the prettiest dusky pink. love the cross stitch detail.
i'm going to make some cushion covers with them. i bought a couple of white cushion covers too. you can see one on the left.
and more candles were purchased. of course.
and they look good in here i think.
and this arrived in the mail! i am off to sit and have a browse ;)
hmm, come to think about it, these last 2 days have been all about me!
it is nice to spoil ourselves once in a while :)
what have you spoiled yourself with lately?
