Do you ever....

Do you ever set something up to photograph it for your shop and then want to keep it?
Yup it happened to me. When I spied this cute little framed floral foil art (say that 3 times fast) I fell in love. In fact so much so that the first time I set eyes on her I had to leave her behind because I knew I would want to keep her.
I have struggled with this little corner of my home. The front door opens up to it and it's right next to the stairs.  The instant that I stepped back to take the photo an Ah Ha moment happened. For the first time since we moved here I actually liked this corner of our home. 
Scared that I won't feel this same way without that little frame I think it will remain there for a bit. Also I am pretty sure that the kids will not be able to resist the wonderful buttons and threads so easily in their grasps. It will be a test I'm sure.
I wanted to thank everyone for their suggestions on my previous post. Japan is still in my thoughts and making some wonderful Granny Squares to send to Sarah London's Project seems like a great way to help. Looking at Alicia's blog today she stated that she is going to compile a list of ways to help. So I will be keeping a look out for that as well.
Last but not least - Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone!! When I was in high school one of my bestest friends taught Irish step dancing. I remember going to classes with her and dancing the night away. She still to this day teaches classes in Massachusetts. Saint Patty's day always reminds me of her.

Lovely corner! I would have trouble parting with that pretty little picture too, Amanda. I do that all the time - buy something with the thought of selling it, then never do! :-) **Helena
