Cafe Sheri, liked cake then, likes cake now
Like most families right now, mine is trying to cut back on spending, save money, and buy less STUFF we don't need. But it's also MY BIRTHDAY today!
I do find that making and sharing my wish lists somewhat curbs my appetite for wanting stuff. I like to think of it as my own eco-friendly way of getting around my deeply ingrained lust for buying pretty things for my home.
My Wishful Birthday Wish List:
- Handmade Birch Tree and Birdie
Photo from Lorena Barrezueta
- Blue Pyrex Luncheon Plates from Pony Party
- Fiestaware - a mix of Peacock and Shamrock
- Jen Corace Garden Journal
- Heath Ceramics Studio Mug
- Automatic Indoor Composter (via PWADJ)
- Lorena Barrezueta Ceramics (via Dwell)
- Domino: The Book of Decorating
- Anything in my Etsy Mini Widget
- My candidate to win tomorrow (can I wish for that?)
- Health, happiness, and world peace (hey, why not?)
Ah, I feel better already. Happy birthday to me! It is just a theoretical Wish List. One can go all out when it's just wishful thinking, right?
Read an interview with my Mom about my Election Day birthday over in Pregnancy Buzz.
Does making and/or sharing your wishes make you want them less? How do you satisfy your "wants" during tough economic times.
