Friday Frills


MONEY CAN BUY:

A BED, but not SLEEP; 

BOOKS, but not BRAINS; 

FOOD, but not APPETITE; 

FINERY, but not BEAUTY; 

CLOTHES, but not STYLE;

A HOUSE, but not a HOME; 

MEDICINE, but not HEALTH; 

LUXURIES, but not CULTURE; 

AMUSEMENT, but not HAPPINESS; 

COMPANIONS, but not FRIENDS; 

FLATTERY, but not RESPECT; 

Yes, there are many things money can buy, 
But it is better to seek the things in life that money cannot buy.

Sam, sweetie!!!
How are you, dear?
As usual, your frills touch my heart: money definitely can't buy the most valuable things in life. If more people understood that, our world would be so much better!
Oh, and that set was inspired by Downton Abbey, my fave series!
Have a wonderful weekend, and let's keep in touch!

This is go great. I wish it were put together with a background so I could pin it to my Keeping It Classy pinterest board. Money can definitely buy clothes, but style has no monetary value.

I love this post, it's so true! I don't like people who only care about they're money, but as you said here there are so many things money can't buy. And I must say, it's important to have enough money to buy a house but it shouldn't be the only thing you care about in life.

Ah I love this! I've seen it around every now and then on the internet, and each time I do, it has that same impact - that all those things you can buy don't matter nearly as much as the more sentimental things in life. ^^
