Pretty things make me happy!

It may be shallow, I don't care. Having pretty, colourful things just makes my mood brighter - and that makes it worth buying them!

In one of my favourite shops in Stroud, I recently bought a beautiful new card wallet:

I'd been looking at them every time I went in (or even walked past the window) for weeks, and eventually I gave in. I'm glad I did: it's so pretty, it makes me smile every time I go to use my credit card.

In fact, I like it so much that it was only a couple of days before I went and bought myself a coin purse by the same designer:


Even the back is pretty:


The company, as you can probably read, is called Vendula, and they have a website showcasing their designs. I think my favourite (other than the ones I already own) is the coffee cup motif; go and have a look around if you like this sort of thing as much as I do. For added bonus, they're very reasonably priced (you might even say cheap).

Someone with far more dedication than I have to prettiness in the blogosphere is Kate at Wishing True, a relatively new blog devoted to beautiful things.

They are pretty and there is nothing wrong with having pretty things!

I don't think needing beauty around you is shallow, I need beauty and I am not in the least shallow. Now maybe if things have to be expensive THAT would be shallow but if the simple beauty of a wild flower on the side of the road makes your mood lighter - THAT is a good thing.
