"The difference between a neurotic, a psychotic, and a psychiatrist. The neurotic builds castles in the sky, the psychotic lives in them and the psychiatrist collects the rent." - unknown

Or...to paraphrase a favorite vintage Joseph print ad of mine...

"Heb had some spaces in her day,
Which she didn't want to waste away.
She took the spaces with great care,
And built a castle in the air.
On the turret she climbed up high,
And cut a hole out of the sky.
Out of the hole she built a boat,
And put it in the castle moat.
Sure enough came evening soon,
And through the hole fell the moon.
The moral of this story is,
Nothing's out of reach with resourcefulness."

Though, at the moment, I'm thinking less of castles in the sky...and building the darned thing myself...and more of brooches on my jacket...courtesy of the masters of the humble Lego brick, Dee & Ricky.

The question...for today at least...is how much is too much for something that is...witty...humorous...but, when all's said and done, made of building blocks?

    Well, I guess you're paying for the ideas, so you pay what you think it's worth (or what you can afford!)
