Tree Lust

I'm the most acquisitive person I know. I could collect stuff till the end of time. Really, I think I could pile up a bunch of just about anything, given enough time and money. Except maybe baseball cards and Civil War memorabilia ... those strike me as the dullest things imaginable.

Right now I'm really into plants made out of metal. I can't explain it, but I want them. At the top of my list are the tree or bush sculptures of Harry Bertoia, created during the 1960s:

I think my tablescapes need a little something to make them look like landscapes.

Great pictures, thanks for sharing. I've never seen anything like these before, and if I ever come across them I'll think of this blog :)

I have that problem too. I can't stop collecting things. My house is just full of cool stuff. I'm a lot like a squirrel.

Thanks for commenting on Nick Haus! I look forward to seeing what you have to say. Unfortunately, I had to stop taking Anonymous comments -- too much spam, too much vituperative. Come out from behind the curtain, ye nasty Anonymous! Everyone else, please, I love to hear from you.
