Gimme, Gimme

The Veruca Salt in me is coming out again.



I've created a new page (like I don't have enough already!) dedicated to our Want List for the house, including realistic purchases - like an over-the-sink dish drainer and a shower curtain for the clawfoot tub - and not-so-realistic - like Bradbury & Bradbury wallpaper and a goose that lays golden eggs. OK, maybe not that last one.

I made this page mainly for our own benefit, to keep track of all the things we find for the house. I have so many links in my favorites list that I can hardly find anything again once I've fallen in love with it. Also, maybe this can help me (I say me, not we, because I am the shopper in the family) see the big picture of what we want, what we need now and what we need but not urgently. And to evaluate how much all of this is really going to cost.

So take a peek, if you'd like. It's not fully fleshed out yet, but I'm sure it will become a mammoth list soon enough.

I love the idea of making a wish list and I really like the things on there.

The wallpaper is gorgeous, but I wonder if a relatively modest folk Victorian would have ever sported anything like that. Which is not to say it couldn't now -- if you won the lottery or something.

You're right, I doubt our house would've had something fancy like that. Which is how I assuage the pain of not being able to afford it!
