In the past few years something strange has happened. Something I never would have expected....
I've begun to like brass, wicker, and velvet...
Yeah, I know I built it up, but this is a big deal for me! When I was younger I hated these materials. These and glitter. I've warmed up to glitter too, but I don't want any crafting glitter in my house - what a mess...
Time to make amends!
Dear Wicker, Brass and Velvet,
All I can say is I was young and I didn't understand your potential. I've grown a lot and I appreciate that you've waited for me to come around.
Wicker, I used to think you were granny and or tropical. That it was impossible to make you look anything but tacky. I am very sorry. I didn't understand your natural beauty, your handmade quality, and how much texture you can bring to a space. I've learned and now I love you.
Brass, it was unfair of me to neglect you as a beautiful metallic in favor of brushed nickel and chrome. Please understand. I was worried you would make my room look dated, but your timeless quality is no longer lost on me. I love all of the small animals made of your material and how beautifully you patina.
Velvet, oh velvet you're so sweet and luxurious. I honestly have no good reason for ignoring you for so long, and I'm sorry. Thank you for bringing depth and vibrancy into my room with your lush colors and texture.
I hope you will forgive me because you three are the best and I want to be friends.
