Not a Material Girl

I love pretty things. I like happy things. Pretty and happy things like this necklace from Diva ($19.95). It’s like wearing a little happiness around my neck.  When I go in the sun, the light catches on the sequence and sprays like bursts of joy.

I like matching things.  I like dots and and the colour red. I like tea and closing my eyes while holding the cup close to my lips.  I like things that match; even Son matched today!

I’m not a material orientated person; I give anything and everything away.  If someone likes one of my possessions, you will hear me say, “You have it!  I’d love for you to have it!” But that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy beautiful things; quite the contrary: I love them. I take time to enjoy the little happiness afforded each day, so it’s easy to let material things go — because there is joy everywhere; you just have to look for it. For me, giving is one of the best joys of all.

Love the Moment

Kelly and her husband Matthew seek to live a fun and adventurous life with their four children and pet bird.

    I love the way you present your photos Kelly!

    I have a necklace we bought in China for around $2. It’s made of multicoloured, multishaped wooden beads threaded on elastic cord that just sits around my neck. It’s likely the cheapest one I own, yet I wear it often. I love colour too.

    I always love your photos Kel! I also love the special rack at Diva … have picked up some gorgeous bling for $5 or less over the past couple of years but I am not so good at getting around to taking photos of it LOL!

    Great post Kelly. Your son looks gorgeous, matching the tea-set! I love your photos too. Thanks for the encouragement to hold onto our material things lightly.
