But then I look at things I can afford, and I feel a lot better. I adore this circus tent. We have a children's tent for each child's bedroom, though. So even though we could afford it, the Flanagan family is not in the market for tents. Flergh.
We are in the market for disaster preparedness, though. Our church has instructed that we have a supply of food and other items available in case of emergency. And even though I always think about it, we haven't really gotten things together yet. This Ikea flashlight is in our price range, would be valuable in an emergency, and it's red! You guys, RED!
I'm not too into tchotchkes or doodads around the house, but look at this sand. Look at these rocks! Look at my gaping mouth and wide eyes, in love with them and wanting to fork over all of my belongings to get huge amounts of them to put in my apartment. Which would be empty. Except for the sand and rocks. Not my smartest imaginary move.
And I know it's overdone. I know Baroque frames would look silly amongst all of our modern, sleek-lined decor. I also know that I wantWANTwant this mirror.
Are you an Ikea fan or do you live close to your favorite store?
