“word to the wise” wednesday – baker furniture

The art of things chosen well rather than often.

This tagline really resonated with me, so I thought I would share it … as the first “word to the wise” wednesday that does not form a complete sentence.  Hee hee hee.

But don’t you think there is so much truth in that statement — that we have become so accustomed to purchasing things often that we are less attuned to choosing them well?

    Great advice. We all should take a little more care into they “why” we are purchasing an item.

    Off to see more of Barbara’s home, thanks for posting it!

    Yes. Which is why my walls are bare – I’m waiting for art that I love rather than purchasing anything that is just “ok”. I actually can translate this into my blogging philosophy too. Rather than posting every day, I’m limiting myself to those days when I have content that I really want to share and excited about. Anywho…have a great weekend Traci!
