I have this issue with becoming obsessed with certain things I see. For instance, I bought a tiny vintage bronze colored alarm clock for my nightstand a few months back, and now every time I see anything remotely similar, I have to pry myself away before I buy it and get yelled at for "having too many clocks". I like to think that vintage alarm clocks could be a pretty cool piece to living room decor though and have this dream of lining up the top of our sideboard with so many clocks that I could set one for every time zone. You never know when a guest will need to know what time it is in Japan...or so I like to think. I digress. Anyways, after the ridiculous amount of hot and humid weather we have had in NJ lately, I decided I needed to buy a fan and fast (no we dont have central AC and yes I am jealous of anyone who does have it). So I stopped in at Target the other night and picked myself up a nice stainless steel Hunter fan. Industrial, yet efficient, and small enough to be carried up and down the stairs by me.
Somebody has already been there done that. Vintage fan, large metal number, small porcelain birds- yes please.
