Very occasionally, when that happens to me, and if the item is affordable, I buy it.
Call it impulse buying (or weakness) but it is what it is.
If an object of my affection makes me smile when I glance in its direction, it is worth the cost.
Such was the case of the pink glass "perfume" bottle.
Now I'd never use it for perfume storage.
I just liked it and put it on a windowsill upstairs.
The window looks into my home office.
It's at the top of the stairs in a place one would never expect to see a window.
Guess I'll never really know why that window was placed there.
DOES EVERYTHING YOU, PERSONALLY, BUY HAVE TO HAVE A SPECIFIC PURPOSE?
