+ new blogs on my never ending blogroll
from tracy / simply olive and ruth anne / about some things

this weekend i saw my first case of shop till you drop :

a young girl was just stepping out of the ambulance,
in front of h&m
all her shopping bags were laying on the ground
as i heard the ambulance man say : can we give you a lift to the station,
or do you have more shopping to do ?
First i thought :hmm great service , but then i realized he was being sarcastic

the lovely bags via billet

and i discovered an amazingly beautiful book
thanks to tracy and nikko
