I love looking at Etsy Treasuries and other Bloggers' Wish Lists, highlighting items they would like to have one day. And Pinterest...I like to get lost there sometimes too. I guess it is built into us to Want. Want something more than what we have. I know I am that way. Lately, when I go to the store to get something I want, rather than need, I usually come home empty handed. Either I realize, after I am face to face with it, that it really will not fulfill me. Or I remember I have it in a darker shade. Or I just decide I cannot cram another item into my itty bitty house. But lately I just seem to have everything I need. I really hope this feeling continues. Because really, how much do I NEED? Very little...with a couple items in the desert island pleasure bag to make me feel like ME (those items? beads and music, baby!). I will always window shop, on line or in person. That won't ever stop. It fans the flame and gets me inspired to make new jewelry.
So for a while (not sure how long), I would like to show some of the items around my house that really mean something to me. It will serve as a reminder that I probably do have everything I want. Maybe it will keep that desire to go buy something at bay.
I wonder what next Thursday will bring.....in the meantime, leave a comment and let me know what thing is special to you.
