I bought the True Grit remake on Blu-ray. It was worth it. I fell asleep about halfway through, but I was exhausted.

I got a gift!
Very unexpected, but soooo beautiful. It's a Storm watch, they call it the Darcy. The picture doesn't do it any justice.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Bought this at Michaels today:



It's designed for photos, postcards, other little bits of ephemera. I'm going make something for my parents' wedding anniversary, but I'm not sure yet what photos I'll use.

I also bought frames for my Doctor Who cross stitch pieces, and ordered some vintage-style papers and stickers that Michaels didn't carry.

That's quite a fun pattern, and is also designed to cleverly narrow anyone's waistline through optical illusion.




Picked up a couple of hand-rolled linen handkerchiefs (one plain white, one white with a red trim), and a navy cashmere tie (won't get a chance to wear it until the cooler months, but it was a good deal so I snapped it up).

Bingo. I love the colors and frankly, my "figure" needs all the help it can get.

That's really sharp looking.

Neat. How large is your collection?

I bought a new lawnmower. It's a Toro Personal Pace Recycler. Mulches like a demon. I was looking at a Honda twin blade, but the handle wasn't long enough.

4 rotary phones at the moment, it's still early stages. I'm having to pace myself due to lack of space. But mark my words, one day I will own a Phone-booth and payphone.
