little rewards…


handmade etsy shirt

A few weeks ago, I finally got around to selling some clothes on ebay and I rewarded myself by buying this shirt on Etsy. Did I deserve a reward? No, probably not. But there was money burning a hole in my Paypal account, and I did just scratch a looming task of the to-do list. This is how my brain justifies buying stuff.

But it’s a splurge I can feel good about because it’s handmade from vintage fabric, and it’s one quality piece replacing 10 chain-store items I got rid of.

I love the details, like the tie, lace trim, and darts. It is so beautifully made! The seller was so sweet and made the shirt to order, happily adding a couple inches to the length of her normal sizing. It shipped 2 days after I ordered it and arrived from Canada within a week!

I’ve been wearing jeans more than usual, probably because I know the insane heat isn’t far away and my jeans just lay gathering dust for a few months. I know this top will be getting a lot of wear this spring and summer, it goes with so many of my skirts and shorts and it’s made with comfy cotton.

My Etsy “favorites” is my go-to place to treat myself. What is your favorite way to reward yourself for getting through that to-do list?

    Those yellow sandals are so lovely. I’ve been on the search for some lemonade-colored summer shoes for years and I can never find comfortable ones. But now I’m inspired to resume the search!

    Wow! That top is fantastic! I love it! Good for you! Good work on getting rid of a bunch of stuff you don’t need, too! We had a successful garage sale, so I have more room in my closet, which feels nice. :)I also took three full bags to the thrift store. Spring cleaning feels so good! :) xo
