Paperish Delights

Oh goodness!  I'm starting to get catalogues stacked in my mail box---it must be coming up on Christmas.  Signals which is published by Public Television is probably my favourite, but I get a bunch more, which I always honour with a thorough read but from which I seldom buy anything.  They are however loyal to me even though I'm not really egging them on.
I'm not sure why but I'm attracted to Mr and Mrs Nevermore
The other day, while I was doing the washing, I was strangely driven to pick up all the new catalogues and circle things I would buy if money were no object.  Actually, space would have to be no object too, as one can only have so many tea dresses and leather and lace hightop bridal boots (Victorian Trading Company) or gazing ball stakes and a set of 7 seedpod birds from Zimbabwe (Signals).  Even though I have only two empty spaces in my shoe-hanger, the Hearthside Slippers, the Comfort Mocs and the ink-black Mary Janes from LL Bean would be nice.  I could do with the amazing Avocado Tool and the Storybook White Cotton Petticoat Nightgown from The Added Touch.

But the most appealing of all, were I rich and space-blessed, would be a decadent thrill. Can you imagine curling up in the corner of this with a book, a glass of wine and a box of chocolates? Even though I claim to be not fond of brown furniture, and decandence and I are strangers, I'd give in.


  1. I have always found catalogs discriminatory to dogs. "Where are the dogalogs?" I ask.

    1. AC, you woke up very whimsical this morning. I appreciate whimsy

  2. My husband likes catalogs. He will occasionally make a purchase. Where else can you get odd things like wrap-around sunglasses (Yes, he bought me a pair... actually, two pair. I'm not sure why.) and other must have items not sold in local stores? ha!
    Personally, I like the Pier 1 and Bed, Bath and Beyond catalogs.

  3. That sounds like a lovely pastime, I might just have to give it a try!

  4. I wonder if that sofa would be comfy?! I've always dreamed of a white chaise lounge, but I'd have to get rid of all the creatures and all the people in my life if I wanted it to stay clean. Lol! The only catalogue I ever get is from Sears and I don't even know how they found me, I haven't bought anything from them in years.
    I love how much you love shoes.

  5. Two empty spaces in your shoe hangar? - hangar with an "ar"? he said teasingly. And boy, is he in trouble! He shall remain truly anonymous this time.
