Why? Because I got them for 65% ooofff! Or... $2.99 each from the original $8.49 tag online! (What happened to the difference? DH made sure that I put it away back in that dark, hidden abyss we call our Savings Account (scary lol!!! Oooooohhhh...)
Plus, you can't find them anywhere but Sur La Table! And I looked on Ebay, Amazon and Overstock for like an hour! Each! I also saw the dinner plates that go with it, bea-u-tiful, but "Brain" says, "If it hits 75% off, then you can start THINKING about it."
So I guess I'll wait then... (*sob*) (You see, if "Brain" says no, "Mouth" follows with a loud NO and "Eyes" and "Hands" stay put. Which is a real dilemma because "Hands" is in charge of reaching into my wallet, so if "Hands" don't want to listen to me by having "Eyes" watch him like a hawk, I can't buy it! See how simple that arrangement is?)
Buh-bye for now to you my precious darlings! But I'll visit you soon enough... And once I can afford you all, I'll get you home as soon as I can! (*sob*)
Now if I only I can find good white scalloped dinner plates, I'll be ready for Eas-----ter! Which reminds me... I need to go back to Marshall's and snatch up that beautiful Rabbit egg platter in the same shade and it's 45% off!
I know I have money for that- the couch was generous today! :-)
(Don't worry, "Brain" is always watching me...)
