Tassel Fever!

Posted: April 15th, 2009 | Author: Katie | Filed under: Simple Solutions |


Everyone who knows me well, knows that the day after Christmas is one of my favorite shopping days. My mom and I head off to our favorite stores with a Starbucks in hand and prepared to fight the crowds for amazing deals!

This morning was just a tad bit different because I was at home. But with coffee in hand, I fought the masses of onliners for a little piece of The Nesters Tassels on her Etsy Store. Let me just tell you, I have looked high and low for a tassel that I love and today was the day. Of course The Nester does such beautiful work and her tassels are individually made with quality and love. And for today’s sale she was selling over 100 tassels between $5.00-$20.00!

So 8am when the sale started, I slowly started perusing through the tassels, double clicking for bigger pictures, imagining where I would put them, thinking of Christmas gifts, and starting to mark my favorites in a folder.

THEN…I quickly realized that some of the tassels I was looking at were not there any more! At that moment my inner competitive shopper came to life and BAM, quick, gut decisions had to be made! 

And look at how beautiful!!


My first and only Nester tassel.

But wait…

Then, as it always does, my buyers remorse kicked in. Although this time it was telling me to check back on another tassel that I liked to see if it was still available.

Yes! Click. Purchase. Done.
And welcome home little one.


Now, where were the kids you ask? Well they must have known how much I was looking forward to The Nesters sale because both were still sleeping at 8:30! They sure know mommy loves to shop!

If you missed the sale, there are still 3 left (I just checked) 2 left - I know - 2 out of 100 after only 4 hours of the sale. But I think I remember Nester saying that she might put others out later…You just better hope I’m not on when you are or you’ll have some serious competition!!!

    Congrats on your tassel additions! They look darling.
    Thanks for your comments on my blog. I’m still loving my newly painted cabinets. You are my hero! :)
    When you ran/walked your 1/2 marathon do you remember how long it took you to finish? Did you train very seriously?
