general guidelines

Vintage enamel ware.
Oh be still my beating heart.
The green, the green!
I did have that rule: Buy only white with black trim.
Oh, and of course my five dollar rule: Never pay more than five dollars for anything in a thrift store.
Know your limit, thrift within it.

I like to think of my rules as general guidelines now.
Buying only white just needs to be adhered to every other time or so.
And the five dollar rule, well, I felt I loved the pitcher twice as much as usual so it would be fine to spend twice as much as usual.
When I saw the eight dollar sticker I pounced on the pitcher and rushed to the till.
Start the car, start the car!
