Flashy glittery things have never really appealed to me. Natural things appeal more than synthetic things.
I'd rather be at the water's edge than buy a fountain. I'd rather use compost than fertilizing pellets. I'd rather have an old wooden boat than a Bayliner. I'd rather be there in a mud floored palapa than be trapped on a cruise. I'd rather buy from the artist than have a made in china one. I'd rather have a bag of potatoes than a box of instant. The list could go on for miles.
This is a quote from a post last February entitled, "Amazingly Plain and Brown":
I am married to a plain brown potato who is more precious than any words could express. He is priceless. He is my beloved and amazingly plain and brown.
We fit, as not only do I love plain brown kraft paper, but I very much am a plain brown paper bag.
Brown paper bags still come in handy at times, even in our high tech world. Hopefully.
