Let me count the ways

Oh how i love thee... // Nicole Beltane Oh how i love thee… // Nicole Beltane

“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.”

— How Do I Love Thee? (Sonnet 43) Elizabeth Barrett Browning, 1806 – 1861

In December of 2014, this little beauty was advertised on a local shop page for sale. I was smitten at first sight. In my head i already knew that it was meant for me.

Now it was very ‘$’ and not a small purchase intact if i think about it now we could have brought two lounges for the price of it. I was hoping beyond hope that all of my craft things would fit in, but its quite a deceptive piece, as its a lot shallower than what it actually looks.

I keep the family memory stuff, photos, moments, stickers, and project life cards in it, and its been fantastic for that but my favourite thing is the top is wonderful for creating vignettes and displays, and i change it once or twice a week. It has become my go to place to take photos of new items on.
