Haulin’ Brass

I won’t lie to you: I’m nearly as pleased with this post’s title as I am with the items pictured below.  This weekend I picked up three emery pillar candleholders from Crate & Barrel and then rounded out the half-dozen with three blogger-approved candleholders from CB2.  (Manhattan Nest is surely responsible for moving some units for CB2.)

I buy very few purely decorative items – I’m not into having tchotchkes and gewgaws cluttering up surfaces and enticing Jarrod to break them.  One of the other decorative items to slip past my knickknack filter is Dwell Studio’s urchin object in antique gold, as seen in my IKEA VITTSJO nesting table hack post.

Likewise, I permitted myself to get swindled by Rebuilding Exchange on a $15 brass door plate.  Is so pretty!  I think I’ll put it on the kitchen-facing side of our bedroom door. The hieroglyphs will fool people into thinking something exotic is contained within — not the piles of sweatshirts littered around my half of the bed which I shed mid-sleep because our sheets are so warm.

The Most Interesting Man meme is still a thing, right?  Totes!

    1. I hope that kid is making stacks on stacks – he’s incredibly talented.

      Yep, new location for Rebuilding Exchange – street parking on Webster is tight, but there’s a lot behind the building.

  1. I love most interesting man memes. And I always wondered how.. Sorry, gotta look back and see…thochoskie.. Nevermind, point is how that word was spelled. Love it all, but especially the door plate. It’s gorgeous.

    1. I have to Google the spelling of that word every time, though my guess has been growing closer to accuracy each time: the first time I looked it up I used something like “chotchkey.”

Tell me something!
