To keep or not to keep?

Sometimes I make something that I just don't want to let go of. I've got a painting on my living room wall that I painted years ago, which is on my website for sale but that I really think I would not be able to part with now! My "Spirit Of The Sahara" is a reminder of my time spent travelling across Africa when I was 19/20, and I just love to look at it daily! I may have to mark it as "NFS" before someone else decides they would like it, too!

I've recently also created a painted paper mache cat ornament. I bought the blank ornament online and decided to completely cover it with dots of acrylic paint. This took me such a long time that I found myself wanting to keep it the more I worked on it. I've had it on my stall once, at a reasonable price considering the amount of time spent on it, but I'm now thinking I may just add it to my collection of cat ornaments in the house, anyway! What would you do?
