To keep and to treasure...

It'll be our first wedding anniversary soon and in honour of the occasion we've bought this painting from artist Amanda Blake. I adore her work. It has a vintage feel and is soft and muted and a little magical.
I think it would be nice to invest in something beautiful every anniversary. Something to keep and to treasure.

I think it is a fabulous idea to buy something beautiful every anniversary.
I love the painting, the aesthetic reminds me of some of Picasso's work.
