Are there things that really grab you? For example - I love colanders. Every time I shop at a kitchen or home store, or even an art show, I seem to see the most fabulous colanders. I always feel like I need to buy one. I don't know why, but it is almost overwhelming. That's why I have limited myself to three: One Small, One Medium and One Large, or else my house would be overrun with colanders. It's the same thing with gloves or even platters. I have a firm limit on platters. A few years ago, I started seeing punch bowls. I felt like I should have one. I nearly bought several, but I kept reminding myself that I would never really need a punch bowl. I almost caved last year at Christmas. Super exquisite punch bowl at Home Goods. I said "no" to myself until someone else finally bought it.
A few days ago, Martin asked me why he always sees new bowls whenever a holiday is near. What? Bowls are not one of my things. (Except for some holidays when purchasing an appropriate serving bowl is absolutely necessary.)
I admit I saw this at Sam's Club and thought it was cute. The price tag made it even cuter ($14.99)
I walked right by it. I don't really DO bowls. Then I read the instructions.
I knew I was in trouble.
