Outfit Post and a New - Old Phone

I have been so busy this week that I have not been able to check in as often as I am used to.  I am selling some things on eBay and so far so good with that.  I have not sold everything listed but I am happy with the outcome, so far.  I get pretty excited when there is a bidding "war" over something.  I have not had many of those and well...what I call a "war" might leave some questioning...I am such a newbie that a "war" to me is when more than one person is bidding.  LOL.

Anyway...on to my new goodies.  A few weeks ago I won this phone in my own bidding "war" on eBay.  I got it for 10 BUCKS!!!!  SO happy about that.  I have seen them at antique malls, stores, etc for about 5 times that and going up from there.  It looks perfect in our kitchen and it hides a very ugly wall phone jack.  I have been looking for something to hide that for awhile.  We do not use it so the phone is just ornamental.

My dress is a very thrifty gem.  It was bought band spankin new from Lane Bryant how can THAT be thrifty, you ask?  Well let me tell you.  Last week they had a sale of 40% off everything in the store, including clearance.  The dress was on the clearance rack and marked down so low that it ended up being 13.00 (and some change, I forget the exact amount).  It was normally 89.99 (I think...around that, again, I forget).  Anyway...I know I got a great deal and I love this dress.  David loved it all the better.
