Material Girl

April 4, 2008 at 9:20 am 4 comments

I hate to think of myself as materialistic, but I am a spender. A fritterer. A waster of money, time and energy finding new fripperty to spend my money on. 

Its been three days of enforced frugality on this buy nothing challenge, and I can’t say I’m enjoying it.

I am savouring the enjoyment of the last few things I bought prior to my decision to reign in my inner Material girl, and thought I would share with you some of my treasures.


Firstly, Munchkin’s first Waldorf doll. If I was more Steiner-fied I would have made it, but she would probably be 16 before she got one. Isn’t she beautiful?

PhotobucketThen at the craft markets I bought one of these cute pots, with what looks like a very resilient cactus planted in it. I have a terribly black thumb but it doesn’t stop me buying plants. I’m sure that’s some kind of abuse to plant-kind.


And I have to share with you the illustrations with you from Gerda Muller’s Autumn. They are so lovely. It is a beautiful book to own.


I fear it is going to be a long month.

    Congratulations on signing up. I love the cactus. It is probably the only type of indoor pot plant I could keep alive!

    Cute doll. I made dolls with the kids yesterday/today which kinda look Steiner-ish I think going on the ones we received for the kids birthdays when we used to go to playgroup there (not intending to, but they ended up that way lol) in a very amateurish way!

    Don’t you just love Gerda Muller’s books? Even though my kids are getting a bit old for board books, I can’t bear to part with these.
