Just Say "When"

I'm always on the lookout for something just a little bit different to add to my loosely thrown together collections of stuff.
Now take this blue 'wooden' shoe planter for instance.
It has an unusual shape (as do i) and is a very nice shade of blue (the color i am feeling).
And, I just plain wanted it.
Isn't that what most collecting comes down to?
I want stuff. It's a disease. I manage my symptoms by humouring myself with the thought that I don't spend much and my buying is a form of recycling.

I'm going to attempt to stay clear of thrift stores until next year.
Don't worry. My blog will not languish.
I'm still all about thrift shopping and all that.
But, a girl's got to know when enough is enough and when to say 'when'.

Well, you know what the Bible says: Do not lay up for yourselves treasures upon the earth. What does that mean exactly?
