the truth hurts
a cluster of enameled watch faces
An indulgement of western boots
a variety of florals on copper verdi
a jumble of milkglass
a crate of belgium coffee cups
a clutch of tiny spoons
How does that saying go?... "Life is like a box of chocolates...you want as much as you can get"? hmmmmm
Well, that be my words to live by. Funny how everything in my life relates to chocolate. Just one taste and I'm a goner. I want the whole box or jarfull!
So why have one of anything ?
I guess that need for excess has leached over to ever other aspect of my life as well.
There's something about groupings and collections that really does it for me......be it tiny spoons too mini to use, a bevy of boots that I'll never have enough occasions to wear, a variety of discarded watch faces .....
It's all in good fun.
So my fix was satiated this past weekend at the Schoharie Antiques Show.
Now you may never want to be my friend again when I tell you I purchsed the "greedy" mug, watch faces, pair of boots to the far right (in my size , yippee!), 30 belgium coffee cups and silver spoons for a grand total of......$74.00. Yeah, that's right....
That's right people...I may be greedy....but I'm thrifty!
