"If you love something, set if free; if it comes back to you it's yours, if it doesn't, it never was meant to be". Wait a minute. Richard Bach was talking about human relationships when he wrote that, I don't think this is going to work for my situation. I need an inspirational quote to help me come to terms with selling an item I listed on etsy (you know what I mean). I came across this Napco cookie jar a few weeks ago and snatched it up since it reminded me so much of my own. I fully intended to sell it in my etsy shop. I photographed it, listed it and then put it on my shelf to wait. That was my big mistake. I should have hidden it from view and not enjoyed having it next to me, on my shelf, in my office (where I could even talk to it). And then what I was originally hoping for happened-it sold! And I was thrilled (for a second) and then slightly sad that this adorable little jar would be leaving. But, I have gathered my strength, carefully packed him up and am going to mail it today. Lesson learned-never get attached to an item I list on etsy again. Just a few pictures for the family album (ha, ha).
