Dog Blog Post #1482

I'd been trying to convince myself to buy this Chest for weeks.

It made it as far as the shopping cart yesterday before I balked at the $20 price tag.

When I saw today's challenge of Curves I decide it was meant to be.

I thought it went well with the curves of the Pirate Hat and the curves of my (current) favorite decorative fabric, used as a Coat of Gold today.

The white "cravat" was picked up for pennies from the fabric remnants bin - literally - I think it was < $0.50. I hadn't a clue what I was going to do with it, but it draped nicely, didn't seem to wrinkle, and was… well… cheap.

Ok, I admit that $20 isn't a HUGE amount for a prop - until you see what my prop closet looks like.

And you start to do the math of how many pieces of fabric I have.

And hats.

And special-purchase unbreakable "glass" cups and mugs and vases and…

Well, you get the idea.

Besides, if I didn't obsess over the price of things then my closet/house might soon look like an episode of hoarders.

Hmm… I might be onto something!

You sound like me when deciding whether or not to buy a prop! I love the chest though, so wise investment! You should really publish a book of your photographs. They are always the highlight of my blog hopping! ♥
