|Yes, its' a tool box - but I'd use it for a knitting bag.|
|I'd move here in a heartbeat|
|I'd drive this every day with the top down|
|I'd open my yarn/coffee shop... complete with library loft.|
Do you know what else I realize as I wander around looking at impractical things that I can't afford - my life would be the same as it is now because I no longer possess the ability to purchase such things. I don't buy frivolous things because I always have guilt that the money should have been spent on something 'important'. I have curbed my impulse buying to the point that I have gone to the opposite extreme... and yet, I still never have any disposable income. Every time I think that I will go out and get something just for fun, an emergency crops up that needs immediate attention - something with the kids, house or cars - and it always depletes what little I had squirreled away.
After years of such chains of events, I have honed an amazing ability to talk myself out of purchases. If I can't find at least five honest to goodness uses for it and people who would benefit from the item then I don't get it. I just have the worst time getting things for me because I feel guilty, although I am pretty sure that Union Jack tool box will find a way into my house because I'm absolutely certain that I need it.
At least I can pretend I'm famous now - Jasmine's Crafts interviewed me a few weeks back and her post is now up. Please, please... no autographs - well, maybe just a few.
