First up: beaded fringe. I ordered from CheepTrims for $2 or less per yard. (Jo-Ann sells similar 1" trim for $7.49 per yard. Retail markup is ridiculous!) The prices were so good, I couldn't resist ordering several types of fringe... 50 yards total. Guess who will be putting beaded fringe on everything. :)

|and I scored this black iridescent fringe for 65 cents per yard!|
Because my walls are desperate for art, I ordered two prints of John William Waterhouse paintings.

And for myself, lots of goodies. From Hobby Lobby, a box with lid for $7. From Walgreens, 12 cinnamon votives for $2.50. From HomeGoods, scented purple drawer liner for $3, a cup for holding makeup brushes for $4, six pairs of tights for $17 and a set of white 600 thread count sheets for $50. From Bed, Bath and Beyond, Sparkling Cinnamon candles for $7 and $10 and a container of potpourri for $12. I'm not really into Christmas potpourri, but I like the shape of the black metal container. Not shown are a new memory foam pillow and mattress topper from Amazon which I've already put on my bed. Mmmm... memory foam is so comfy. And the reason I went to BB&B, a set of black 500 thread count sheets for $80. Not a major bargain, but nice black sheets are VERY hard to find and my current set is faded. By the way, if you have never slept on high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, don't do it! You'll be ruined for life and forced to spend $50 or more on sheets lest you feel like you're sleeping on sandpaper. :P
I haven't been in a Bed, Bath and Beyond in about four years, and I was surprised at how many silly "As Seen on TV" products they carry. For instance, Pajama Jeans. Seriously? Pajama Jeans? Am I the only one who thinks encouraging people to wear pajamas in public is a bad idea?
