Learning To Love Something & A Sale

I am happy to tell you that I am finally healing.  If you didn't know what was going on, December 1st I fractured a rib.  Then I had company...then I got the flu for three weeks...followed by a sinus infection.  That's why there were no bears for Christmas.  It was heartbreaking.  I have ALWAYS done bears for Christmas.  Actually I didn't get to do much of anything.  R even ended up finishing decorating the tree.  It was sad because I love all the things that go with Christmas.  Things happen, what can you do?

Ok so on to the post:

Do you ever wonder if those weird little things you do are just unique to you or does everyone do them?  They are usually those things you don't ever think to discuss with anyone.  You have no way to know.  I am going to tell you about one of my weird little things.  I am curious if I am alone in this.

So it went like this...I was at the mall, in one of the high end anchor stores.  I saw a small handbag by Patricia Nash.  I love clutch bags.  This was leather...yes, I am sorry I love leather.  Especially Italian leather.  It was a great size, the style was perfect, and it was distressed.  I wasn't sure about the color though, it was pretty vivid.  And I knew it wouldn't go with anything I owned.  Especially my shoes.   I like my shoes to either match or at least compliment my bag.   The tag claimed it was pink.  But not really...more like if pink, orange and red intersected.  Nor was I keen on the price.  I put it back on the shelf.  I kept browsing and found some nice things I liked, but I kept going back to the little clutch.  Finally I bit the bullet after being drawn back to it 4 times and bought it.

I got home, looked at it and thought...what did I do???  This has to go back.  I tucked it carefully back in the bag with the receipt.  But somehow it never did.  It has turned out to be one of my very favorite bags of all time.  

I have done this with several other items in the past.  So my question is...have you ever done this?  Bought something you weren't sure about it and discovered you love it, and use it a lot?  

If so, how does this happen?  Do we learn to love something because we make up our mind to, or does our conscious mind try to override our subconscious?  Clearly some part of me knew this was a good thing that I would use since I kept going back to it.  Why didn't I know right away?  Is it just me who does this?  I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Ok now for the fun part...since there were no Christmas bears, everything on my website at is going to be on sale for 40% off until the 15th of January.  If you would like a piece please just e-mail me with your paypal e-mail address, and I will send an adjusted invoice.  The sale is first come first serve. No lay-away, sorry.   Also this will be the only sale all year.  I am going to be going in a little different direction.  Take advantage of it while you can, there are lots of nice pieces available that would love new homes.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, and a prosperous new year! 

Hugs, K. <3 br="br">

I'm glad you're doing better, Kelly! It's so hard to be cooped up and not feeling good. Haven't bought anything like your clutch, but I do return to look at things numerous times, at least online, like they are growing on me. :o) Happy New Year!

Phew, it must be the day for resurrections, another friend I was all worried about just turned up again too! Sorry about your December, I didn't break a rib, but I did get the flu - blergh.

As for the bag, err, yeah, I've done shopping like that, though admittedly not with handbags, but yeah, totally done that kind of shopping!
