The first project I did when we moved in was to re-vamp this chandelier. It was a hideously black-and-gold Craigslist find originally, a few coats of white spray paint can be miraculous.
I love ’em. T thinks they’re tacky, but I just can’t get enough. They make me happy. My collection now included gifts brought back from France, South Africa, and Mexico – because chickens are universal.
I love to collect. This drives T absolutely insane, but he humors me. You’ve seen the Abrahams and the chickens (above), so add to the list: yellow pottery, teacups and saucers, souvenir magnets, and small found toys (as in, found on the street.) T thinks I should add shoes and books to this list, but he doesn’t understand that those are things I need. Collecting is something that is done just for fun.
Mine is pink. I love it (but I don’t use it very much.)
