The title of this post has nothing to do with this post. Just thought I would do a shout out to Elton because today is his birthday. I always remember his birthday because when I was 14 years old I *LOVED* Elton John. My girlfriends and I used to listen to his albums over and over and over again. And on his birthday in 1974 we tried to call him to wish him a happy birthday.
We didn't get to talk to him but we did get to talk to a male operator in the UK who had the whole British accent thing going on and that was almost good enough.
Sorry for the lack of posts lately. It's been one of those swamped at work weeks.
I did managed to get to the Japanese Dollar Store (Daiso - Japanese Yen Store?). I was starting to get nervous because even though it is a dollar store there was a lot going into my basket. But my haul came to just over $20.
Pretty Cath Kidston-esque lantern (temporarily in the corner of my office).
Lovely coasters with a strawberry print. Now I can stop tearing out the subscription cards out of magazines to use as a coaster....
Baking supplies - little tart pans and the hard to see the thing is a package of cupcake holders that have a white gingham pattern.
Lace tape. They show it used on a little presents - how sweet is that?
This is hard to tell but it is a gift bag. For cakes. I bought it because I liked the pattern on it and didn't really pay attention to the instructions on the bottom of the bag. Guess I'll have to bake a cake for someone.
Envelopes - I bought small white labels to write the address on. Love the muted colors.
And finally - Korean scrubby washcloths. Guess Daiso is a multi-cultural dollar store.
Well that's all I got. I hope things lighten up work-wise next week and normal posting can resume.
