Seeing Stars {when one star jumper is just not enough}

Ever suddenly realised that you’ve started to amass a collection of something — without even noticing that you’re doing it?

I definitely had this happen with Breton tops.

Every time I went shopping for clothes I’d make a beeline for anything stripy and, as a result, built up a crazy collection of striped long-sleeved tops in every colour.

Now I’m *slightly* embarrassed to admit that I have a whole drawer full of them.

Oops. Seems I may have gone slightly overboard; I have a collection to rival Boden.

But it seems that stripes aren’t my only obsession.

Move over Breton — there’s a new craze in town.


Seeing Stars

Over recent weeks, I am seeing stars wherever I look.

Our house appears to be full of them.

Ornaments, home-furnishings, on my clothes, shoes and jewellery.

I’ve always been a fan of all things astronomical — one of my son’s names means ‘of the universe’ whilst the other’s middle name is Orion.

Definitely a stellar influence there.

But recently, everything I gravitate towards to seems to have a celestial slant; from the shoes on my feet to the pendant around my neck.

Is One Star Jumper Enough?

I can’t believe that — similar to the Breton fixation — I hadn’t really noticed how much my starry addiction had got out of hand.

It was only when I bought a second star spangled jumper a couple of weeks’ ago — and Mr D commented:

‘Haven’t you already got a star jumper like that?’

They definitely resemble each other a little.

So here we go again folks; my newest shopping compulsion. It seems that stars are taking over.

Do you have a ‘favourite’ thing that you seem to buy on repeat? Please let me know that I’m not the only one!!
