Goodbye my pretties!

Soon I'm going to have another landmark piece for my collection... A piece that I -must- have in order to be "content" with my collection... But you know as I wrap up the pieces of cels that have kept me company in the past few years (some are just months really), I feel a tinge of sadness and maybe even guilt. LOL... There's this tiny voice telling me, BAD CARE-TAKER! Now that there's something MORE shiney, you're just willing to THROW us away to some STRANGER!
A long time ago I traded a couple of high-end cels that never even made it into my gallery for wishlist cels. Eventhough I really liked those cels, the mere fact that they were never displayed kind of made parting with them a little easier. Of course I don't for one moment regret trading those cels away, they are obviously in the hands of a more appreciative collector than I... And the cels I got out of those transactions are absolutely ADORED by me...
Anyway here we go again... A good number of my cels are going back to Japan while I eventually (hopefully within this month) will have a permanent piece in my collection. ^__^ I went through a lot of trouble acquiring this piece really, money, e-mails, cels in exchange... You name it.. I DID IT! Sometimes I wonder what kind of "bending over" other collectors do for their "must haves", their "dream cels"... Which was really my point in this post... I wanted to ask what you did for that one piece you absolutely love.
Once this piece and another one come in this July... I think I will spiffy up this gallery a little. I know it's bare but I've been wanting simple stuff lately. In the meantime my fingers are crossed that nothing dumb (aka shipping/accidents) happen. I hope I didn't jinx myself by posting this... LOL.
