It Pays To Be Patient


Sometimes when I am shopping I come across a piece of furniture or a plate or
some fabric that I love, but think it is too expensive, so I pass it up.  That's how I
felt when I first saw this dish at a consignment shop.  Loved it, but thought to
myself ~ too pricey.  I set it back down and walked away, hoping that the price 
might be reduced, and if should sell before that happened it was just not
meant to be mine.





The other day I was in the same shop looking for a chandy for a remodel job when I 
spotted this dish once again and noticed the price was reduced.  This time it was a
bargain and I could not pass it up.  It pays to be patient!

Okay girls it's time for the first Pink Saturday for 2012!  

I'll share a little secret with you ~ Bentley has great patience!

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  1. Isn't it fun to find something you want that has become a bargain? That feels like a green light from the Universe, saying "Yes, it belongs to you!" :)

  12. Beautiful dish! I do that also, wait to see if the price goes down and if it's gone, then it wasn't meant to be mine! Happy Pink Saturday!

  13. I have no patience, but I have a lot of restraint, if that makes sense. I bet you are glad you waited...it really is pretty!

  15. Don't you just love a bargain! We have a consignment shop and I always try to "hold out" on items with the same thoughts "If it was meant to be..."

    Have a lovely weekend!

  19. Susan ~ We are so much alike. I have done that time and again. Sometimes, I go back and it's not there ~ sigh ~ it's not meant to be. Other times it is there ~ YIPPEE ;-)

  20. It certainly did pay to be patient - it's so pretty. My thinking is that if it's meant to be it will be.
