Serendipity

9 Aug

Serendipity – a word I love, an experience I always enjoy. I looked it up in the dictionary this morning and I think it’s my new motto.

Ser.en.dip.i.ty {noun} 1. an aptitude for  making desirable discoveries by accident.

The thing is, I always seem to come across the best things when I’m not really looking at all… A quick, unexpected dash somewhere, a passing glance into a shop window, a lucky donation. All my very best finds have come from an inconsequential outing.

Take this elegant little coffee set I came across this week.  Without wanting to sound too corny, when I saw it sitting on the shop shelf, it felt a bit like it was waiting there for me to find it and take it home.

The wheels are in motion for a place to display {and sell} all these treasures. Let’s hope that the serendipity continues so that I can gather enough gorgeous things to fill it!
