"More is more. Less is never more - less is obviously less.
Who wants less??"
-Michelle Nussbaumber in Elle Decor/November 2009
Not me. That's for sure.
I like stuff. I like a lot of stuff. I have a very bad habit of buying things but not displaying them. I have a bigger stash in my house than Nancy Botwin.
So, I shopped. At home.
WHAT'S ON MY FLOORS?
Vintage Sergio Gonzales Tornero etching and aquatint.
Vintage Chinese rice fields oil.
Framed vintage coral sea fan.
Blance de chine lamp, pair of vintage Chinese coral lamps,
apothecary with poppies and vintage mounted sea coral.
Twelve faux bamboo framed vintage rice paper drawings on a
Paul McCobb stool for Calvin.
Vintage 'dark' oil and vintage framed butterfly collection.
Pool bag and girl scout cookies. Circa 2009.
Hallway...painted Chinese leather trunk.
Pair of Chinese temple jars.
WHAT'S IN MY DRAWERS?
Vintage Italian capiz sconce shades, cloisonne ashtray, Italian trays and coasters.
Drawing by my (then) 6 year old daughter (agent...anywhere?).

These guys were the first to come out of the closet.
They went up in the breakfast nook.
