Six Word Fridays: Why not


I heart shoes and handbags. Honestly,

What gal doesn’t? But my wallet…

Well, she holds a different view,

Stout penny-pincher that she is.

Choose one, the other, or none.

My common sense agrees, oh but…

My heart asks…why not both?


I don’t know what it is about the changing of seasons but I always want new shoes and a new handbag. Sigh…is it the same for you?

This week’s Six Word Fridays prompt is ‘Why Not’…so why not head on over to Melissa’s blog to read more creations on this theme!

    Such a sad dilemma! Why can’t our wallet be more like a fairy godmother? Just sprinkle a little magic dust and Poof! We can have it all! πŸ™‚
    Thanks so much for the laugh this morning …and the instant identification. Love knowing there are others out there like me.
    Great Six Word Friday!!

    Why not both, indeed?! I totally understand both sides. The money issue is a quandary.

    And, I used to absolutely hate to shop. But, lately I’ve been craving retail therapy for some reason. Something must have changed with the birth of my second daughter.

      I don’t love shopping for clothes but shoes and handbags…yes indeed. πŸ™‚ Hope you get to enjoy some retail therapy soon!

    Me too! The change of the seasons. I so adore the trend this fall – orange is my all time fav colour. I bought a purse in that colour, but now I would like a pair of purple shoes, a camel coat, and new brown boots! Oh I also purchased a new hat…purple!

    it’s not just in fall for me… any time is a good time to get a pair of shoes… but my wallet doesn’t like that empty feeling.

    Here is a secret: I wear flip-flops more or less all year round. (We don’t have weather, so it’s pretty doable.) But then fall comes along and reminds me that soon we’ll have a bit of rain, and I might want to own a pair of actual shoes! This year I’m coveting a particular pair of boots… but oh, that pocketbook has other ideas. πŸ˜‰
