I have however been seduced by a non essential need... one was a spontaneous case of the incredible wantie's. Jooles of Sew Sweet Violet - one of the earliest most beautifully creative blogs that I followed, is a very talented lady. When she posted here about her designs of bunting I knew we had to give the Tilda teal and pink set a home!!!
The quality of stitching is fabulous and I do so love her choice of fabrics. Once they arrived they were so stunning and I had the perfect place in mind for them in my new kitchen! I could picture the bunting in my minds eye before our extension took shape and I actually ordered a second identical length to adorn my new kitchen walls.
They fit the space perfectly and I am thrilled with how they look now I've finally put them up in their fated 'home' (the walls had to be built and painted first hence the delay!). Thank you lovely Jooles for your crafty skills - it is always a delight to receive a beautifully wrapped, purple package from you!
And the second, was a need born out of my productivity of the crochet kind. You are probably aware that the wonderful Lucy has joined up with the Wool Warehouse. I confess I took a look and it prompted me to purchase one set- the colours available were far wider than I currently have access to - so some wonderfully colourful yarn made it's way to our home.
Oooo the potential crochet loveliness...

Who said the buzz from retail therapy was short lived?! Hee hee!
Have you made any non essential purchases lately?
