My sweet man says it should all be relative to how much I have in the bank, but that is a whole ‘nother subject.
I am also the kind of person who is easily enchanted by the small things… I don’t spend my money on big fancy things for the most part, and I am not the best at saving up for a big purchase. No, I am the kind who finds joy in a great bargain and having lovely little things for those items that have get everyday use.
Take for example my purse ensemble:
I have been searching for a new spring purse for weeks, but I could never find what I was looking for in my price range. Either I loved a bag and could not afford it OR I could afford a bag, but didn’t really love it. So I held out and I held out, and I almost gave up and gave in. But just in time I found this beauty – a Robins Egg colored hobo style bag at a garage sale for $1 – and in almost perfect condition, hardly used! I was giddy with excitement I tell you. It absolutely made my day, (and it goes so well with my new shoes!)
Next is a few little goodies from Etsy.
The Wristlet KeyChain by JimmyPickles is also so precious! I fell in love with the floral pattern and Cherie was so sweet to put it on a brown background for me so it wouldn’t look too dirty too soon. I love being able to just slip my keys on my wrist when picking the boys up from school or taking a walk, it’s just so darn handy! And all for $8 with shipping… (obviously a big splurge for me!)
So even though these are little everyday items that might not matter to some people, they matter to me, and they make me smile every time I reach for them, they are lovely and useful all at the same time…and they didn’t break the bank to boot!
