In fashion, it is touted that if you wore it when it was first in style, then you are too old to wear it when it comes back into style. To that end, you won't find me in bell bottoms or low rise jeans (in my day, we called them 'hip huggers').
So I wonder if that same rule applies to decor?

OMG, did you say brass? I have had an entire house of Baldwin Brass switch plates. Then there was my vast collection of brass animals, chandeliers, coasters and cricket boxes. My family room end tables had gigantic brass table lamps so tall they could guide a plane in for a landing. Bookshelves and mantles displayed brass candlesticks and picture frames out the waazooo.

Hope you are enjoying your countdown to Thanksgiving.
