Guilty Pleasures


I admit it. I have a problem. I am unable to NOT purchase vintage pink bath towels. I don't seek them out, mind you. I'm not scouring eBay or rushing out maniacally to every thrift store in town. I just can't leave them behind if I happen upon them.


Their sweet floral patterns and old-fashioned feel remind me of treasured times at Grandma's house. They speak to my oh-so-feminine side, and make me smile from the inside out.


Whatever will I do with them? In my mind, I imagine them brimming from a guest bath closet in a little mountain or beach getaway cottage. For now, they grace a shelf in my home and wink at me with the glint of possibility, spurring me on in my daily endeavors.

I will be featuring more of my own collections, and those of others in the coming weeks. Have a guilty pleasure of your own? Would you like to have one of your collections featured? Please post a comment!

The only thing I collect is beads. And I'm very happy to say that I now have a nice little quantity. I've seen many people with many, many more, but I'm pretty pleased with how many I now have to choose from when it comes to creating some new. :)

I can definitely see the appeal to those very pretty pink towels. Nice collection!

Weird, sosorosey! I'm sorry I can't help you with the photograph! Half the time I try to upload my photos here, they won't even upload! Blogger is frustrating sometimes!

When I visit the thrift store, I'm always coming across crochet or knit blankets, sweaters, and hats. Well, I always buy them. I can't just leave them there knowing someone spent a lot of time making them. Once they're home they are given as freebies to our family members or for us!

My guilty pleasure is books :). I think B&N and Borders are making tons of money because of me.... I just keep buying and reading, buying and reading.....
