How many times have you bought something simply because you love it - without having any idea how you would use it? All the time, if you're like me. This week, I had the delightful experience of finding a use for such an item, and it validated my purchases of things that I love....not that I was planning on stopping!
I recently treated myself to some luxury hand-made soaps:
Then I realized that I don't have a single soap dish...all my soaps are liquid. I was planning to buy a decorative soapdish, when I thought..."wait a minute...I've been collecting pretty dishes for months now. I MUST have something!" A quick search uncovered this pretty little thing in my cupboard:
Isn't it adorable?? I was so happy to have put this beauty to use, that I vowed to look for more porcelain, and to get the pieces that I fall in love with. That decision lead to this purchase at an estate sale over the weekend:
That soap dish makes me happy every time I see it.
What "finds" bring a smile to your face?
