  2. It is so pretty. You should have bought it, there will always be some place somewhere in the house. When I like something, I don't bother to think where i will put it , for if I start thinking I will end up not buying and regretting it later, for I too know very well that there is no place, yet once bought, a place automatically makes itself available.

  3. This is gorgeous!! So quirky and fun - it would make me smile each time I had to reach for an umbrella (which normally makes me crabby)!
