of a perpetual packrat | When
we first started decking out the digs, I had these grand visions
of 60s space age digs that were just the right combination of
sleek and kitsch. We snatched up every retro orb lamp we
stumbled across during thrift shop excursions -- which turned
out to be quite a lot -- and soon, an obsession was born.
The living room alone has at least 6 lamps in it it, in addition
to the overhead track lights. Sleek has since gone out the
window, as we've accumulated more and more objects we love far
too much to pitch.
