Are you someone who makes mental shopping lists that never actually go beyond the grey matter ?
I am a hopeless 'wish list' person.. always flicking through a multitude of catalogues and brochures making tick lists of all the items I lust after.. thankfully these extortionate shopping lists rarely surface further than a momentary longing and I save oodles of money by filing them away in that vast filing cabinet called.." one day my venetian mirror, cashmere socks, velvet coat, fairisle beret, ad infinitum... will come".....I have just been drowned in another day's delivery of pre-Christmas brochures all vying for my attention and money.. some of them..most of them do not go further than the recycling bin but others are carefully stacked in my old wooden basket for the day that I decide I can afford these bright baubles and fancies.. which is very seldom.. Today's offerings consisted of a small neat catalogue called Plumo.. full of pretty pretty temptations.. this was followed swiftly by The White Company catalogue.. oh how I love their bed linen... my purchase from them of embroidered duvet cover and matching pillowcases to end up being used as a dust sheet by the electricians re-wiring our house...!!!!!
Graham & Green is another of my faves.. Cox & Cox... ooooer.. the list is getting dangerously long..
I have been seduced by the 'must have' mercury silver candle holders.. the wall lights cunningly disguised as Cherry blossom.. the recycled, pressed glass, rose- tinted tumblers.... I think I should stop right there..
Where do your weaknesses lie in the world of the glossy pages... please share with me your 'retail therapy' secrets...
I am all ears..
