Lilly Pulitzer at Wal-Mart?

Yes, I'm trying not to shop much since I need to buy a farm, but sometimes, I just can't help myself.  It's necessary.  Like, for instance, when you see Lilly Pulitzer sponsored animal crackers.  Really?  Lilly just doesn't seem like the type who would have items for sale at Wal-Mart, so I'm just giddy.  Now I don't have to drive 30 minutes to the mall to see her wares, or even turn on the computer.  Nope, I just have to open my pantry, which is something I'm doing way too often anyway.  (Speaking of diets, I'm 5 pounds down... from my ten pound weight gain... after my twenty pound weight loss.  Heck, I don't even know where I am any  more, but wherever I am, I'm in tight pants, hence the diet.).
I also picked up a stack at my LQS for a sample I'm making.  I'm going to teach a class, so I need fabrics from the shop to make my display.  More on that later.
 And I picked up some charm packs because I'm completely addicted to half square triangles, thanks to a certain someone. (Thanks, Rita!)  In fact, here's how my Nouveau project is going.  Yep, it's growing.
Don't forget to enter the giveaway.  You have until Tuesday at 8pm CST.  Good luck!


  1. Oh god! After all that shit i gave you, i can't remember if i entered the give-away!
    That is so hilarious!
    Oh, and the farm thing?
    ME TOO!!! Totally!
    Until my husband pees on my parade and reminds me that if we have chickens, i'll NEVER be able to go on a vacation EVER again!
    Because we won't be able to find anybody to take care of "all those animals" while we're gone!
    He does that a lot.
    The peeing on my parade thing, that is.
    Speaking of farms, i have a TOTALLY cool site for you to look at.
    But be prepared!!! You'll need time, because once you look at it, you'll get SUCKED INTO IT!!! (Like i did! For HOURS and HOURS!) It's a lady who used to be a lawyer and live in some big city. She has teenagers and a boyfriend, and they've moved to her family's farm in West Virgina. She has chickens, goats, chickens, sheep, chickens, 2 donkeys, chickens, a milk cow aaand... did i mention the chickens? She has so many, she doesn't even know how many she has!
    I'll shut up now so you can go have a peek:

    (i'm sure you know, no spaces)

    (And don't say i didn't warn you that it's addictive!)

  2. OH!
    And as if that comment (post?) wasn't long enough:
    Have you ever seen any of the pictures floating around the 'net of Wal-Martians?
    I *love* them!!! Makes me want to hang out at a WalMart all week to see if i can spot any IRL!

  3. And i have NO idea why i'm so HYPER right now!!! I usually NEVER talk!!!

    My 'word ver' on that last post was
    Isn't that odd?

  4. Okay.
    I think i'm done now.

  5. You have a shop that you live by that has Farmers Market Apples???? I am so jealous! Love that little stack, it is super cute!
