Slice of Life Sunday: a pick-me-up purchase

I have never had trouble justifying a purchase. I find a rationale for everything I want and suddenly my want becomes a need. Well, during these past few months my car and health have wreaked havoc on my bank account and I have had a much more difficult time spinning my wants into needs.

And then last week I walked into Grace Hart & Co., where we have a booth filled with items from my dad's breweriana collection for sale. And I spotted two little jewels hidden in a glass case. I have a nice little collection of vintage cameras, but I hadn't seen these before. Well, not the Polaroid at least. I took them from the case, asked the dealer to make me a deal and before I knew it, they were being wrapped up for me to take home.

Of course I don't need them. But I haven't treated myself to a pick-me-up purchase in weeks. And that's really the only justification I needed that day!

About Kelly Tarleton

I've always been a creative person, and the one who always had a camera on-hand at a moment's notice for any occasion. Photography and graphic design dominated my life in school and I loved every minute of it. I miss that constant creative outlet and want to share more of it with my family and friends through this blog.See more of my work at my website:
