After writing my post yesterday, I came to a conclusion about fact, about stuff: I like stuff.  Here is a small sample of some of the stuff I want (for a more comprehensive list, check out my Pinterest page):

I want these knobs on my dresser:

I want flatware that looks like this:

I want this couch:

I want this above my bed:

And I want all my drawers to look like this:

The thing about all this stuff is: it wouldn't improve my quality of life, not even a little bit.  In fact, the couch may decrease my quality of life, because hubs would hate it, and if he's not comfortable while watching Mythbusters, no one is comfortable.

I probably wouldn't even notice my cute flatware or knobs or whatever after a few days, and, most likely, no one else would either.

I guess the moral of the story is, I really need to learn to not want stuff.


  1. I don't know...those are some pretty cute dresser knobs. They might make me happy every single day for ever.

    So...moral of the story is, you can want stuff as long as you continue to appreciate it even after it's not new anymore. Haha.

    1. Yeah. I need to learn to appreciate more than the novelty of an item. Haha.

      Those knobs would look amazing with the grey wood thing I have going on in my bedroom. Seriously.

  2. I don't think wanting stuff is the problem. We intrinsically long for beauty and are attracted to it, I think God made us that way. God has blessed us with beauty on earth, even if it is minute in comparison to what it yet to come. Don't be hard on yourself for desiring beauty, but question your goal for obtaining it.

  3. lol.. I'm laughing at the drawers thing because you would spend all that time making it look cute and organized and then someone would take their dirty little hands covered in pudding or something and reach in there to get 1 spoon and mess it all up!
    (Or does that only happen in my house? lol)
    However, I have to admit, I do like the idea of my kitchen being the "cute" room of the house, because lets face it, that's where we spend most of our time! ;)
