Brass

I believe it may be getting warm enough here that I may ACTUALLY paint again in my garage.

Yahoo! I’m also planning on getting all crazy with color. Ready for that?

My family will be so grateful if I get this stuff painted and get it out of my garage. We look trashy.

So, while I’m working away I thought I would show you a couple of deals that I have found lately.

The one I’m sharing today…..keep an open mind.

Don’t run screaming.

For some reason they appealed to me.

I’m just not sure why.

Ok, ready?

Ok, before you get all “brassy sassy”……and say they look like your grandmother, which I’m sure they do…….

I am NOT the only one that still loves brass.

It is back at several large retailers like…..

My belief, which none of you asked……I think the color of “metal” in home decor follows the color of “metal” that people are wearing.

When we all stopped wearing gold…..we implemented nickel into our decor and silver……..

Gold is back.
Golds value is strong.

Know what I think?

Bet ya’ start seeing brass more.

At least here anyway.

Now…back to my geese. Are they geese?
This was straight from Goodwill. I have NOT polished them. They are grungy. Solid brass, so I’m sure they will shine up pretty.
I’m just not sure how to use them.
I could do something like this……..
Or this……
Or this………
I’m just not sure if they fit into my decor, even though I love them.
I am going to be implementing more navy into my decor and can’t wait to highlight my navy and green with brass.
What are your thoughts on brass?
Just can’t stand it?
Do you wear gold jewelery? I’m just curious……
Are you starting to wear gold more?
My brass lamp….that has been wonderful and still love it.
Now to find a place for my geese.
Any ideas?
Would love to hear your thoughts.
Love,
Me

    I love them. I have let my bird collection fall by the wayside but now I may need to pick it back up… they are totally cute and I would probably put them right in my dining room.

    I love, love these!! They look good in all the places you’ve tried! I really do like the brass accents I have but didn’t like the brass fireplace enclosure we had, I don’t know why. It looked dated but my brass accents don’t lol. You always find the best stuff!!!

    Love the brass, and personally think they look like beautiful swans because of the shape of the head. They look lovely on your mantle!!

    I love them..love them in all of the places you tried…especially on the mantel. Love them with the brick. I don’t have any brass but I think if I came across the right piece I might make that purchase. I do love my gold jewelry…so I am glad it is coming back. I think they look like swans, too…I think someone else said that.

    I think ( and not that you asked) that you liked them because you saw how ‘graceful’ they are! That’s why I agree with those comments above, they are probably swans and I think they are gorgeous. And since you DID ask…I have no problem with brass! But then I have no problem with much of anything, so I guess my opinion doesn’t count. ‘Cept I luv dem birds!

    I like them, too; though I think swan not goose. I’d find a place for them in my home, just like your brass lamp, like that, too. And the brass floor lamp sitting next to me, and the brass original hardware on our antique mahogany desk hubs restored. You get the drift. Trends come and go. If it makes me happy, I wear it or decorate with it. jmho.
