Taking a break from the usual dust & dirt filled monotony.
While browsing through my google reader, I stumbled upon a perfectly frivolous yet superbly awesome product that I would one day like to purchase for our beautifully renovated bathroom. Said bathroom is light years in the future, so for the time being I will have to make do with pictures.
Perhaps if I tuck it away here, I’ll be able to find it again should a bathroom renovation ever happen. If our current progress is any indication of how things will go, I’m not holding my breath.
How cute are those?! (I believe the hubs exact reaction was “you’re a strange bird.” Yes. Yes, I am.)
And if you know me personally, you may be thinking they look a little familiar.
This would be my collection of baby doll molds.
It should be noted that I collect doll MOLDS. I don’t collect DOLLS. I don’t even like dolls. Doll Molds on the other hand…
(This is our current apartment, by the way. It’ll be bittersweet to leave. sniffle sniffle)
Some think it’s creepy, others think it’s cool. I love them.
I’ve also promised not to decorate any future nursery with them. I have not promised I wouldn’t wallpaper a nursery in giant plastic gas station numbers.
About our decorating aesthetic:
We are nontraditional and slightly odd. I enjoy pushing the boundaries of what “home” is supposed to look like. I am a strong proponent for thinking outside the box and utilizing materials in ways other than listed in the instructions. We love art – making & collecting it. The hubs went to college to be a classically trained opera singer (and then decided he liked TV better) & mine was theatre. We are collectors (which doesn’t lend itself well to minimalism) but keep only the things we love. We want our home to be a reflection of us; where we’ve been, what we’ve experienced & shared, everything we love. Melding the very classic, traditional detailing of our new home with my wacky, industrial, weird aesthetic is going to be interesting but a very fun challenge.
I hope I don’t loose too many readers after this post.
Off the soapbox & back to the soap.
