I love it when Camille Roskelley posts on her blog. I’m in love with the colors she uses on her blog, in love with her red polka-dotted chair, her quilts and fabrics, and in awe of what she’s accomplished with her business at her age.
A few days ago she posted this post about things that are her current favorites. Inspired by what she had there, I went to this site and decided I wanted some bowls, too. And I will freely admit that it’s purely a COLOR thing. I’m not the biggest fan of melamine dishes but I’d be happy to make an exception for these colors.
The next morning I called Macy’s and discovered that the one closest to me had some in stock. Yippee! I put a set on hold and planned to just zip down while the older kids were in school.
Then my better judgment took hold of me. Did I really want to take 4 little children to the mall? Nope. The longer I postponed, the wiser I was. Soon I’d come to grips with the fact that I didn’t NEED the bowls, no matter what color they were, and so I never went to buy them. (Victory for me, I thought. I can write this down in my One Step journal under discipline!)
I mentioned to my husband that it felt good to make that choice, that I was proud of myself for saying no.
Later that night when I came home from our last carpool of the night, he hugged me and told me there was something in my office….
Inside was this….
which held these….
Wow! What a sweet thing to do. I ran back to the kitchen to give Mr. Wonderful a big kiss and hug before opening the box to drink in the colors.
Need another look?
As Camille said, “YUM.” Right now they’re sitting on my kitchen counter because I like looking at them too much to put them away. There’s nothing like color to brighten up a winter day. Thanks, Mr. Wonderful!
