I grew up in a house full of A LOT of antiques. The house was VERY ANTIQUE-Y. Imagine lots of chests of drawers, lots of inkwells, Longwy, sterling silver pen knives (sterling silver ANYTHING, really), relief molded jugs, oriental carpets, well-porportioned side tables, cranberry glass, and hopefully you get the picture.
In a classic example of the apple falling not that far from the tree, sprouting feet, and RUNNING AWAY, I have always kept a spare home. I DIDN'T WANT STUFF. I didn't used to. But now I do. I may have a mid-century modern version of the collecting bug. I am in love - quite by accident? With Catherine Holm enamel dish ware. Particularly the platters and bowls.
