Compression stockings and a pair of burgundy fake suede Arcopedico ankle boots. My autoimmune disease is flaring and making my feet and legs swell, and I need something more than house booties to wear.

Arcopedico makes a lot of shoes out of knit fabrics, they work great for feet that swell. Some of their fabrics are as stretchy as pool or beach shoes. Others are not very stretchy but are soft and pliable and conform to the feet. I've never owned or tried on the fake suede fabric, but if it's like the fake smooth leather boot fabric, it's not that stretchy but still very soft and will work for me.

Lots of yarn for Christmas gift crochet projects. To make a pullover sweater for my husband and a kind of cardigan wrap for my mother in law. And a pack of stitch markers, some yarn needles, and a decorative button.

Mattress topper.
Blanket.
Doing a small makeover to make room cozy for winter. Still looking for a lampshade. And a place that sells trim to customize the lampshade.( Saw Angela Clayton on Youtube adding trim to a lampshade.)

Look at the big spender. All I got was that pint of Magnum Ice Cream that’s covered in like three or four shells of chocolate and is like half a days calories. I’m thinking of saving it for Halloween because I have the day off and I never get kids.

... ever.

Seriously it’s kinda depressing.

my husband needed to go to Walmart, and I felt up to getting out of the house tonight. I bought some lipsticks, nothing too exciting, just a few L'oreal warm neutral shades for everyday looks. And a few stretchy pullover "leisure" bras that are made of soft material and the 3X fits me very well (46D). And a pack of cane sugar sweetened Dr. Pepper in vintage style 8 ounce bottles, like I remember from childhood.

Some basic knit layering clothes from fullbeauty.com. 2 mock turtlenecks, one each in brown and black. And 2 pairs leggings, one each in brown and black also.

I made a long very oversized crocheted button front tunic in a warm autumn color mix yarn, to wear over the brown set. And I'm waiting on more of the same yarn in mixed shades of purples and grays to make another of the same tunics to wear over the black set.

The neckline of the tunic is kind of big, and unfortunately there's no easy fix for it in the pattern, so the mock turtlenecks will fill in the extra space.

Shower gels from a brand I used to buy in my college days, Yves Rocher.
Waiting for mail packages from USA quilt fabric and beads, takes a long time to clear customs.
Hand sewed an eternity scarf today. Tomorrow I crochet shower cloth I learned shell stitch via Youtube.

I did a little bit of Black Friday shopping online.

The big thing I got was a little pocket sized digital camcorder for vlogging. I have an older compact digital camcorder I bought around 4-5 years ago but it's getting glitchy and is way out of warranty. I wanted to replace it and found a good one today for an okay price.

And some replacement brush heads for my Clarisonic facial cleanser, a liquid lipstick, and two vintage perfumes for my collection (Diamonds and Rubies, and Raffinee). All of those were really good bargains.

So, I got some neat stuff and stayed within my budget.

I browsed Amazon and some other big websites, but wasn't really into anything I saw. My inlaws give us our Christmas Amazon gift cards early, to take advantage of Black Friday deals, but we decided to just hang onto them and pool them towards something bigger that we actually need.
