One of my very first blog posts was about large scale orchids, wherein I opined that it was better to stop myself buying things that might give me a little joy but wouldn’t stay long-term so we could afford the things that would bring possibly a lifetime of joy. This week we decided it was time for another piece of art by Alicja Urbaniak and we purchased a still life with lillies and fruit.
It’s only been hanging in our living room for 24 hours and already we can’t picture our home without it. We can’t stop looking at it, and seeing new details every time. It’s a really way to mark our first year in this house. I had thought about getting a new kitchen, and haven’t ruled that out just yet, but art is always going to spark joy. We’re able to bring it with us wherever we go.
