i have a few basics "rules" i try to stick with.
-no more than $10 for "wall art"
- i get rid of at least 1 old thing when i bring in 1 new (N does too)
-if i'm not sure, i'll set the item back down & keep looking. if it nags in my head i may go back.
i actually get a thrill out of NOT buying things & being able to put something back over half of the time. my taste ranges in everything from hand made wood stuff to ethnic art to toys!
