Day 127/365--Giving In

My daily contiribution to my year long "Around the House" photo project. 365 photos. Blogged here.

127/365 Household Staple

Cool Zebras is about to start a new Aweigh challenge and this time I am planning on participating (more on that in a another post). However, this required the purchase of a scale since we've never had one. So last night, we headed out to Target and picked one out. Which led to an interesting conversation on aesthetics. While my husband has excellent taste and fully understands and embraces the need for decor, he doesn't really extend that aesthetic to functional objects. You just buy what works and whatever it looks like, oh well. I, on the other hand, want the objects in our home to be beautiful. If they have a function, of course they must serve it, but they cannot be outright ugly. I refuse to spend money on something that will make me anything less than happy every time I look at it. (Of course, I am also not going to waste money needlessly, but I try to balance) This was our final selection and I'm very happy with the way that it recedes into the background. And the hubby had the perfect home for it. ^_^
