Anyone else do this?
You spot something you like on Etsy (or ebay).
You bookmark it, pin it, whatever you do.
Then promptly forget about it.
(Or assume that no-one else will have
spotted it before you can afford to buy it.)
Of course, once it’s sold, you’re gutted.
And you thus begin a life-long quest
to find a replacement version that
will never be quite the same.
Here’s some of my loved/lost list:
(Also known as the “hurry up universe
and throw one of these my way” list!)
Yes, it’s Canadian and I’ve never been there
but look at the colours and the size of it. *sigh*
Do I need a Vintage Portable Music Air Organ?
Did I want this a Vintage Portable Music Air Organ?
Yes. A lot.
(Again might be something to do with the colours!)
So I thought about buying this pear money bank
(from the lovely Tales of a Junkaholic).
And then I thought about it some more
until some lucky soul snapped it up.
I owned a Fisher Price record player when I was little.
It looked sort of this (but without the ‘from Santa’ message.)
I’m still stalking similar ones on ebay.
Well, a colourful map of the inside of a frog.
I couldn’t decide if this would be too disturbing in real life.
And I still have no idea where I would have put it.
(Not in the kitchen I’m guessing!)
Isn’t it just perfect?
So how about you all?
What are your loved/lost things?
Maybe between us all we can track
down some replacements!
P.S. Yes I do have a bit of a thing for maps and globes!
