Some things are just too hard to resist! Whether it’s an adorable pair of shoes or pretty lace trimmings, a whimsically illustrated book or delicate fabric, gorgeous cut flowers or sparkling beads, there are things that we don’t need but that definitely add a little deliciousness to our day. Have you ever noticed how it’s often the little details (interesting buttons on a dress, an unusual-colored trim, a hand-painted detail) that can take something from a ‘want’ to making it ultra, uber desirable? Sigh! It’s okay to give in, truly…it’s better to befriend/balance our whims than to ignore them. Thankfully, as a designer, I have a valid reason to accommodate (and create) my pleasures without having to give in to guilt! 😉 What are your treats for yourself?
PS-Forgive my feeling indulgent–I briefly went shopping for materials yesterday which made me feel better (still nursing a cold)…
Only artists and designers get such a ” high ” over the discovery of materials or a process 🙂 LOL, we are weird that way . hehe. Can’t wait to see whats your new inspiration 🙂
That’s true! Finding pretty buttons was never so exciting, LOL. And even when we buy things for ourselves, we end up getting ideas for something new (or so I tell myself, haha!).
