If I start to look at Beanie Babies feel free to shoot me

Well, it’s official. I think I’m developing an eBay addiction. I’ve bought a few things through the years on the site, and we all know about the latest acquisition that has hit my house OMG. But now? I seem to be searching for things just to see if I can find them. And some I feel compelled to purchase.

I just bought the matching throw pillow that coordinates with the linens I bought on eBay a year ago for my bedroom. And I seem to be asking another seller about a pair of euro shams that I could never find. Oh, and the monogrammed towels I covet for my bathroom? Well, not those. I have to “feel” my towels before buying them.

And, yes, I am looking for that elusive spoon ring that I made so much fun of earlier.

*hangs head in shame*

When I was growing up, all the cool chicks had sterling silver spoon rings. I had one, but I was not a cool chick. But, the one I had was not the one I always wanted.

You see, these rings are made out of the bottom part of the patterns of sterling silver flatware. And growing up I always thought the silver my mom & dad had was the most beautiful thing in the world. I LOVED when they brought it out (which was hardly ever shame on them). I loved it so much that I even convinced Husband to love it so we could pick for it for our wedding registry. (Thanks, Deart!)

And for years I’ve been searching for a spoon ring that matches that pattern. I found it once about five years ago, but got outbid because I was a pussy and didn’t get aggressive with my bidding. I’m still searching for it. Wallace Grand Baroque. The elusive Grand Baroque.

*sigh*

And so, back to the Innernetosphere to satisfy this thing that has now become a QUEST.

Come on. Make me feel better. Is there something you wish YOU could find on eBay?

    It does become addictive; I agree. It’s definitely like a competition; being the final bidder is almost like winning a game.
