These make me ridiculously happy

5 Dec

I know that shopping doesn’t make you happy.  I have experienced enough buyers remorse in my life to know that it can make you pretty stressed at times and I have some purchases which make me wonder if I had momentarily lost my mind.

That said, I saw these two plates in a charity shop on Thursday.  I held them for about five minutes before putting them down and leaving.  They are hideous-gorgeous.   I didn’t really need them.  I decided if they were there the next day I would get them – thinking on it is always a good move.

The next day I popped in on my way home from Uni and the plates were still there!  I quickly picked them up and paid for them.

As a vegetarian this is the only way I am going to have a turkey on my plate for Christmas! (haha that cracks me up).

Terribly sad but every time I see them I smile if not actually laugh spontaneously.   I think that is my goal for all future purchases.

We also bought another chair from the Wimbledon carboot on Saturday.  We now have 4 chairs around the dining table.  Time for a dinner party (which is actually happening tonight with some new uni friends coming around for dinner).

    omg, my mum has one of those plates, but platter size! hideous/gorgeous is the perfect description! I believe the thanksgiving turkey is served on it every year and I can only assume she got it from a thrift shop.
