Material girl

They say you can’t take it with you.

Consumerism is bad.

Stuff won’t make you happy.

But…IT DOES.

I see these things in my house, around me – I literally feel joy.  I have a physical reaction to certain things while shopping – usually it gets me in a little ball in my stomach.  And I feel very lucky to be able to have these things.  Things.  Sometimes, things are good.

Whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply didn’t know where to go shopping.  ~Bo Derek

    Ah – I love stuff too. And this post reconfirmed why we get along so well – very similar tastes! I have the same mixer and got the stomach bunch from some of the other things. Hope to see you guys soon. M x

    I covet your KitchenAid! Actually, I just covet the fact that you’ve got counter space for a KitchenAid.

    I know exactly what you mean. I don’t crave things in general, but there are specific items that just speak to me. Your mixer is one of those things.
