Someone really should stop me!

I have a couple of weaknesses ...ok. OK! ...maybe a few weaknesses.

Beside the obvious ones;

roses, fresh flowers of any kind, dishes, sweet milk chocolate, coffee with half and half, any bible, books, shoes, handbags, clothes, antiques and not in any particular order.

I LOVE paper!

Notebooks with cute covers, Pretty scrapbook paper, even office supplies!

Oh! My! Goodness!

It's terrible!

Back-to-School is a horrible season of temptation for me. I'm not kidding! It's awful!

Going down the paper aisle at Target? BAD idea! VERY bad idea.

A couple of weeks ago I happily ventured down the sinner's aisle of temptation ...

And found ...

These on sale for $1.18 each!

(what's up with the .18 cents?)

Of course if one is good... then one in every combo is sweet perfection! Right?

Well, one thing that the good Lord blessed me with are people who enable this dreaded syndrome. Both my assistant and my daughter have the same affliction.

So when ever I see a sale I think of those around me so that I can help me justify my lack of self control.

Remember the e-reader covers that I made for those same girls? You can see them here.

How perfect are these for each other? Both girls got a selection of 3.

So anyway!

They say if you can admit to an addiction...

What about you? Anything your willing to admit to?

Let me see,now you've opened up Pandora's Box. Where do I start.

Fresh,veggies and fruit, now that's the healthy bit out of the way.

Dark 70% chocolate,although they say that is good for you.
Floral china, well really all china if I'm honest.
Fabric,especially cream and white with a little bit of pastel floral thrown in.
Kitchen stuff,eg mmmm, everything

Beautiful Linen
Garden nurseries
