I just had to show this sweet little figurine after Karen of Brocobelle posted yesterday in the comments about a sporty girl she has. I had never before noticed a figurine of this type, so was struck by the coincidence of seeing two very similarly attired girls withing a few days.
This sporty girl in a rowboat with a Scottie sure did grab my attention. For a split second I thought I had to own her. But I’ve taken a page from Mod Betty at Retro Roadmap’s book, and I’ve decided that sometimes a photograph of an object is just going to have to do. There are only so many vintage tchotchkes that a person can own before the house starts to look like a Mid Century gift shop.
The truth is, the more I collect, the more I do realize that I do not have to have it all. And that is a good thing, as I spend much less money, and I no longer worry about it all taking over my house. I’m able to focus on the things I really want/need. And there are plenty of things falling into that category to keep me searching for a good long time.
