Words of Wisdom



I love these words of wisdom from architect Bill Ingram!  I completely agree with him because if you delay that special thing will be gone and you will regret it forever!!

So true!!! Your home should always be filled with "things" you love, but especially with the PEOPLE you love. :-)

... and you know what; when you go looking for that special something you'll never find it, so you might as well buy it when you see it :)

I agree absolutely .... that's why I've been wandering around the house this evening, with a new painting I bought tonight and can't find anywhere to hang it !!

I will remember this for the next time I'm out thrifting. I always second guess myself, saying 'but what if i can't find a use for it. Next time, I'm buying it. Thank you for the lovely advice.

How true that is.

I was utterly smitten by an Edwardian portrait of a woman at an art auction twenty years ago, just before coming to Australia. She had on a vast feather hat which obscured her eyes, and over time the paint had darkened and cracked - it was THE most enigmatic painting. And because it was slightly over my budget, and I was worried about shipping, I let her go.

I still miss her!

Hmmmm this is a hard one though because I've seen many things I wanted but then thought where do I put it! But your right, if you dont get it there and then you might not ever see it again.

Oh I so agree...... but substitute the word 'shed' for house in my case! Your upcoming store sounds wonderfully creative and innovative. Have fun! A-M xx
