When I am a grown up, I will know what I want...

When I was a kid, I remember really struggling to choose what I wanted. We'd go to a restaurant as a rare treat and I'd annoy everyone by frowning at the menu for 20 minutes. At home, Mum would ask me if I wanted cake or ice cream for pudding and I'd grin and say 'both!'. I'd get a cheque from my granddad for my birthday and then not know what to spend it on.

I'd like to be able to say that now I'm older, I know exactly what I want...I'm certainly more decisive than I was, but here I am about 3 weeks before my 28th birthday, and though I can think of several things that I'd like...I can't quite narrow it down to just one!

So here we have a sampling of things on Etsy that have me a little bit smitten...some of them are within my budget, some of them alas are not...(my mum reads this blog and I don't want her to think I'm demanding that she spend more on me than I know she can afford!) But I had these things sitting together in a 'poster sketch' on Etsy, and I thought they all sat together quite nicely...

Just a heads up - I'm going to be taking a break from my Etsy shops for a week, from April 19th, so I can do some proper catching up with an old friend and do some (gasp!) socialising...but soon I hope to have an update for you kind folks on JumpUp (aka Shop Number Three)...


  1. Hello Catherine,
    Sorry not to have been here for a while, life here hectic as usual.
    I hope you get some lovely pressies for your birthday.
    You must be a Taurus like me?

  2. Thanks for your comment, Penny. I am indeed a Taurus :-)
