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!)
I really do wish I’d bought this school map.
Yes, it’s Canadian and I’ve never been there
but look at the colours and the size of it. *sigh*
This is the thing that inspired this post.
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!)
My other half’s surname (and mine to be) has the word ‘pear’ in it.
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.
Again this is sort of just a colourful map.
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!)
Yes, another globe.
But look at the stand!
It’s not a map or a globe or even colourful
but this gorgeous vintage dress still gets
a place on my ‘lost’ list.
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!
