Babies at Tiffany's
Several weeks ago I was fairly sad so Doug dragged me downtown to browse Tiffany's. Tiffany's is one of my favourite places to peruse and pretend I'm much wealthier than I am. Sometimes I even get all dressed up complete with white gloves just to walk around the store. Holly Golightly would be proud. I think she had an innate wisdom in her love of Tiffany's, it's very difficult to be depressed when everything around you sparkles. I find if I spend enough time gawking and dreaming at all the sparkle and shine, I start to sparkle and shine a bit myself. My second favourite place to cheer up I'll share tomorrow. I'll give you a hint and say it's close to being the exact opposite of Tiffany's. The exact opposite...
I fell in love with their piggy banks and ordered my future bambino a ducky bank. It arrived Friday and I'm not sure if I was more excited to traipse around downtown with my beautiful Tiffany bag, or more excited to place the adorable little duck in the nursery.
I do love it with it's yellow spots and big blue eyes. I told Doug it was our baby's "congrats on being a baby!" present. I'm pretty sure that's not a real thing, but none the less our baby has an university savings beginning one toonie at a time.
