Since I’m so prone to multi-tasking,
it was a natural for me to engage in just that, earlier this a.m.,
by shopping online while enjoying the Thanksgiving Day parade on TV.
Wheeee! Look at this adorable Dachshund balloon
from the 1950 Macy’s parade!
I LOVE DACHSHUNDS!
Here’s a peek at my beloved Dachshund, Chloe:
Awwww! Isn’t she cute?
And don’t you think her vintage bike basket is terrific, too?
It reads ‘KELLEY CO. SINCE 1953’,
+ I found it at our antiques mall, right here in town!

But I digress.
Let’s get back to my shopping happiness.
Since I’ve been thinking + blogging about our bathrooms,
I decided to look for a new shower curtain or two.
Here’s a close up snapshot of the one that is in our current bath:
It came from the Mart of Wal + probably cost me less than $20.
I loved it for its woven blue stripes + general Ralph Lauren-ish-ness.
Methinks we need a change, though.
I’d like to step it up a bit, style-wise,
+ spring for something a tad bit more unusual.
For example, I totally dig the vintage post card style of this one:
I do love my St. Louis + that arch!
Since I also love the Cardinals + their ballpark,
this one had me swooning!
How’s that possible?
Last year I bought this very same image in a print
from this etsy seller:
My print came in red, as does the shower curtain,
which is what you might think I’d have ordered, stat.
I almost did.
However, I thought that, since I already own the print,
I’d opt to keep shopping.
Here’s the shower curtain I think I’ll buy:
Once again with the vintage post cards,
+ what makes it even better is that it includes
lots of my favorite U.S. destinations!
Wouldn’t it be fun to be infused with a bit of wanderlust
every time we shower?
I think so.
If you think so, too, chances are they offer favorite your city.
Or your favorite road trip:
Yay! The Pacific Coast Highway!
Would viewing this render me car sick, though,
like what tragically happened to me
during my initial journey on said-same?
Lesson learned: always take some Dramamine
when you find yourself in a car somewhere outside of (flat) Illinois!
