  1. Congrats on your awesome haul! :) Enjoy Doctor Faustus - I was lucky enough to see it live at the Globe, and it was amazing!!

    My StS

    1. I am so jealous!! My brother went to see Once on Broadway this past year and he was lucky enough to see Arthur Darvill in Glenn Hansard's roll. He is quite talented.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Great haul! And I totally love the Dr. Who throw! Throws are cool. And the red Doc Marten's sound awesome. Enjoy all of your new goodies!

    1. Well, you know me and my combat boots. I now have three pairs of DMs. I doubt I'll ever outgrow wearing them. I'll be 90 years out in a house coat and DMs...or animal slippers.

      That Dr Who fleece blanket is the best ever. It is so, so soft and it is pretty long on me that I can curl it under my feet and still cover my arms. Egg and I have been having some discussions lately, though, on just whose blanket it is. So far, I'm winning the arguments.
