...oops.....




....in my quest for seeking out
the most glorious, original,crafty,
vintagey, christmas gifts for others....




.....i find that i just keep discovering
glorious, original,crafty,
vintagey,lovely gifts for myself!?!



...this has to stop....
....but i confess i am struggling....




..am i supposed to just walk on by...
...and pretend i haven't seen that basket winking at me?


(needed to hold ongoing christmas projects as it's green and therefore totally perfect for the cause).....




...am i to avoid all direct eye contact with etsy?
(..and therefore not be tempted by lovely things like these cute snowmen...
...made by adatine...
although this was restrained behaviour 
as i also have a yearning for her bandit foxes and postman rabbit!!)

...ok so here it is....

...i hereby publicly promise most solemnly...
...not to buy another single, darling
irresistible item for myself.... 


(unless i can't live without it)

  1. Oh dear, you sound just like me, I'm afraid! Lovely buys, by the way ... last week I was desperate for item for my stall but instead cam home with a beautiful teapot, handpainted tablecloth, set of jugs, wade fawns, etc, etc, ... and can't part with any!

    THIS HAS GOT TO STOP!!!

    (Don't see how it can though, unless I'm tied to a chair)

    Love, Claire xx

  5. oooooO! Love the snowmen....! There great.....!
    Reminded me....
    What's the difference between a Snow-man..and...
    a Snow-woman....?
    The answer...mmmmM! How can l put this...
    It has summat to do with snow...And, the snowy round things, we throw at each other....! :>)

    As far as buying things are concerned, it's my only weakness....If it's pink...Must have it!
    I saw a pink buddhas head (10inches high) in a posh shop in Wimborne last Saturday...Originally it was £18:99. It was reduced to £8:99. So l offered £7. It is now sitting on my dressing table in my multi pink bed-room....."Nuff Said".

  6. Ah - indeed that is the danger - there is too much 'stuff' out there and often soooo cheap it is rude not to. Lovely basket - I am partial to a nice basket, so very useful don't you know!
    Have a lovely day
    Best wishes

  11. Hello there!
    i am having the same problem with a lovely parcel delivered recently!
    You may know the very same one?
    It is that time of year where we send glad tidings and should be buying for others and not thinking of ones self! Ooh so hard and tempting though!
    Love the snow men and had a chuckle as always at willies humour..
    Leaving you with a smile as always...
    Love Maria x

  12. That does sound kinda' familiar ... had to laugh at the unless I can't live without it! Resisting those snowmen was obviously required a supreme effort on your part ... sadly I don't think I have your willpower, having just opened that Etsy link in a new tab I just might have to buy something!
