Linda has inspired me to post a few of my favorite things. I love eiffel towers have for about 6 years , well before you could pick them up any where ,my most recent was purchased at Christmas it is the most perfect wire example,it is about 3 ft tall , and I just love it completes my collection.
My chandelier that we picked up on Queen street in Toronto , on my 30th birthday , the day I got my tattoo.It was in a junk shop and we got it for way less than was asked for it, of course when I light the candles it usually sets off the smoke alarm but that is irrelevant , I put up sconces to fix the lighting issue.
My most prized possesion is my hooked rug in my kitchen , I fell in love with it , see I hate the tile on my floor , but the task of ripping that out has encouraged me to work with it, I covered 80% of it with a huge island and as much as I could with this pretty rug.The one good thing is it never looks dirty.
Oh and my lamps , the stripes I love them , they have a seaside look to me, my husband hates them but I love them so they go no where.
I tire of things very quickly , but these are all things that have stood the test of time. 4 years being the longest I have stayed in one home , I am constantly tweaking things and redecorating, but there still so much to do , the powder room needs beadboard and new sink & faucet .But I look forward to those things , I live for it.
