Hollywood Regency-Ish Style...Sorta...Maybe...


well, only the pumpkin might really make the cut into the Hollywood Regency style category but for the sake of continuity of my thought train...okay, only the Idea of high gloss white ceramic pieces is remotely HR...but my pumpkin and bunnies* suit my Hodge-Podge style category to a T...

thrift store finds, the largest rabbit started off dark grey...not so bad, but he didn't show against the black fireplace surround...but that poor little bun...well, I imagine somebody loved him at some point...but his paint job was crazy ugly...the GW clerk laughed as she rang him up...1/2 off 69 cents, I believe...I'm surprised the shop didn't have to give him away...stick him in some unsuspecting shopper's bag...

but enter these two old palsand before you know it, any Hodge Podge becomes a collection...

yes, two is a pair, but 3 is a collection...I'm a firm believer that old saw...

************************************************************************
*the buns are about to into their "Spring" labeled Rubbermaid container for the fall and winter**...they should have gone up, oh, 'round about June, but I'm Cultivating the Habit of Not Sweating the Small Stuff...

**that means I need to scrounge up 2 fall-ish pieces to spray paint white...I'm still kickin' myself over not buying that hideous old owl statue...

I like the bunnies in white. The Goodwill lady wouldn't laugh if she could see them now.
