Love at First Sight.........

..............I have stared at this online for such a long time. I had the most serious case of the wanties (see this post). But it was exactly that, a want....and not a need, so I set myself the task of selling something on ebay. If I got enough money to buy it then I would, If I didn't then I would let it go.............but I did!!!!! Yipppeeeeeee



I am in measuring cup heaven!

I even had enough money left over from the Ebay sale to put this in the shopping cart with it.


The best little fruit punnet ever!

It's a nice feeling being able to get rid of something you have no love for anymore, and be able to get something you have a lot of love for!

I am still loving the tea towels from this site too (although maybe more as hanging works of art rather than items put to good kitchen use!!!!)..........maybe I need another Ebay session!!!!!

  2. Love the measuring cups - what a brilliant idea! The punnet is just such a gorgeous colour and maybe my kids would be more prone to eating fruit if it was displayed like this. Hmmm...

  7. What gorgeous things. I'm not surprised you had the wanties. I fund my yarn collecting habit with ebay sales and the like, and try to be disciplined enough never to buy until the sale money is in the bank. But now I'm fighting the measuring cup wanties too!

  16. A gorgeous swap! Sell that you no longer need or love for gorgeousness that you do!

    They truly are lovely and delightful measuring cups. And that punnet. Just the right shade of blue to compliment the red in the strawberries!

    YUM!

  28. Good for you Vanessa, your post warmed my heart! Letting something go before buying something you love is such a good way to do it. Sending hugs, Em x

  29. I agree. It is a very satisfactory feeling indeed! I have been using Amazon sales to fuel my pocket change. So love Anthropologie! I am blessed to have a store only 45 minutes away. It is a good day when I can trove the depths of their sale bins to find lovely items for the home. Such a sweet, unique place they have!

    Have a good weekend my lovely. xxxxxxx
