Sometimes I find that I do have a penchant for things that I know some may find are less than pretty.
I cannot tell you how much pleasure I find in these vintage paint-by-numbers. I am sure people may find them a bit tacky.
I know Mrs. Wearstler has a little taste for the not-classically-pretty.
The colors in this spread can almost offend. It's like the opposite of soothing. But sometimes shocking is good.
Today I found this parrot lamp at Tuesday Morning--a steal at 79 bucks, I thought. She woman who worked there said it had been there over a year. Poor little fella. Is it really so ugly? (this one is from Neimans coming in a $299! This is why I want a store someday--isn't it all about context?
okay...not quite as good as Neiman's....but it's still pretty (ugly). It does remind me of my grandmother's home a little. I can see it working in a more modern room, too. All about context.
And Kate finished the stencil tonight in the laundry room. I think it's pretty (pretty). Have a great weekend my friends, Julie
