Well, it happened.
I put one of my favorite hidden away pieces up on etsy.
It's something I bought from the Old Painted Cottage on ebay several years ago. Got into a bidding war over it and I won.
But then it came to live with us here at Sweet Bee Cottage and it just never quite fit in. (Not the message, mind you, the message still rings true for our house.)
I tried it in our bedroom - just didn't go.
Put it in the guest room/studio and it was too much.
Tried the living room, and it's just not my style.
I even tried the kitchen......no go. (Or no va in Spanish - I love that story about trying to sell the Chevy Nova in Mexico, but it means "no go." There I go again digressing all over the place.)
But, but, but, but, but, but, but, but,
still love it.
However, should I keep it stashed in my closet when someone else would actually display and not just hoard it?
Is it good enough to just know I have it, but it never sees the light of day?
Would that be - gulp - hoarding?
So, you see, I'm really doing it for the good of the print. And for someone else's house.
You can call me noble.
So have you ever parted with something you really love, but it just doesn't fit in?
Were you sorry?
Will I be sorry?
Thanks for coming by!
