unplanned, not necessary, maybe silly acquisitions
Have you ever bought something that is totally not in your safety zone? Or completely different from how you see your house? Or on the spur of the moment for a reason that really makes no sense?
Here's my ridiculously silly lamp. I bought it at an auction of stuff from the family of 2 people I admire tremendously. They are world famous and passed away many years ago. I am sure my heroes never owned the lamp. There was no attribution to most of the items. It probably belonged to one of their children. But I immediately made up a scenerio describing where and when my guys acquired it and went into fantasy land.
DH was suprised when he came home to find the lamp in the LR and he was kind enough to say he liked it. I do love it now since it is probably 2 degrees from my heroes and it is so silly and fun and it adds a bit of whimsy to the room.
Anyone else ever do something unexpected?
