I want that picture depicting

I want that picture depicting a glass of juice in the kitchen to act as an appetizer and that looks like cinnamon stick. Paintings are not just mere beautiful pictures, it means much more than that. The pictures can influence us in many ways so every time I want to buy one I go for those which depict happiness, prosperity and beauty. Many people also look at paintings as an investment since most are very, very expensive but it's hard to liquidate at the right time, so paints are better as assets, I guess.

my wife keeps asking me to

my wife keeps asking me to buy a panting to place above the bedroom bed and i'm sorry I didn't take advantage of this offer, because the prices outside of these offers are huge, from my poin of view. I keep putting her off by buying perfume , rings and other stuff like that, but the day will come when it won't work anymore....
