okay, here's what i bought...

i really didn't have time to do much shopping while i was in grosse pointe over the weekend, but managed to make a few purchases. of which, i purchased this adorable GRETCHEN SCOTT tunic over at village palm.
speaking of GRETCHEN SCOTT, does anyone know where i can find her stuff here in chicago and/or down in richmond, charlottesville, alexandria, annapolis and/or georgetown? if so, please let me know! thanks!

i also bought this desk tray from tazoi, a home decor line of two's company. i paid $37.95 for the little tray, still debating if it was worth $37.95, but the color combo was too cute to pass up! 
plus the rim matches my seafoam colored chevron pillows:
i also ordered the large cutting board below from LA PLATES. i chose the same pattern as in the image below my last name initial in PINK. they were in town for the TB spring market show over at the little club.
i ordered it to match my PREPPY PLATES tray, coasters and platters [not shown, on order].  although, now i really wish i asked for the PINK circle and then my initial. oh well!!
of course, i also purchased this oil painting from a local artist, which i previously blogged about. can't wait to take it to the framer this week!
finally, on my way back to chicago i stopped at the little villager in new buffalo and purchased up this adorable vase:

love! love! love! promised below are close up shots of my oil paintings.

here's the oil painting i bought over the weekend. it's actually part of my anniversary gift from my husband. now i just have to take it in to be matted & framed. when it's done it will look something like this...
...can't wait!

i am thinking my new acquisition will be another water scene. i just love the artists work, especially the specific painting technique she uses! sorry, i can't think of what painting technique called? anyone?!?!

also, i'm super excited that my mom remembered to bring home my silver jack rogers that have been up north since last summer!


guess i should update my color sandal wheel since i have FINALLY have all my jack rogers & steven bonanno's in one spot! lol!
tomorrow i'll share with you what else i purchased over the weekend, including my 1st gretchen scott purchase!

can you believer one of my friends called me a "shopaholic" ----little does she know that i have a blog called just another preppy shopaholic ....LOL!
