It is my downfall. Well one of them.
Sometimes I see something at the op shop or on the side of the road or at a second hand shop that I ❤️ and I just can’t resist.
Something I just have to have.
Because … I know it’ll look ace in my ‘future house’.
And unfortunately, when I say ‘future house’ I might be underplaying things a little. Because I don’t just have one future house. I definitely have my ‘dream renovation future house’. That’s my current house with a massive renovation (and a pool and a tennis court replacing the ugly house to our north). Of course everyone has this future house I expect (well I guess everyone who hasn’t already done their dream reno, right?) But I also have my ‘future holiday house’ to think about – and furnish – as well.
No wonder I’ve got so much stuff.
So look. These baskets are a prime example.
When I have a beach house/country house with an open fire I am going to definitely keep firewood in one. And maybe twigs and pine cones in the other. They are going to look fab. huh? A bit like this picture I recently pinned.
Note they only cost $10 each. So I couldn’t possibly leave them behind. Not when I could picture so clearly how I’d use them.
In the meantime they’ve been sitting in my hall. Because I don’t actually have a fireplace. Or a holiday house.
So instead of being an asset they’ve been sitting right in the way … Representing a dream … Actually being a nuisance.
But I just know they’ll look even better in the future house!
