Used books, house cats, suspicious looking ladies and men with beards always make me happy.

If I had an extra 2k lying around and more wall space I'd certainly invest in one of these pieces by
Mike Stilkey.

"Stilkey depicts a melancholic and at times a whimsical cast of characters inhabiting ambiguous spaces and narratives of fantasy and fairy tales. A lingering sense of loss and longing hints at emotional depth and draws the viewer into their introspective thrall with a mixture of capricious poetry, wit, and mystery."
