Brass Tacks: The Essentials of Survival

Let’s get right to the point.  For many of us, this was a hard week.  So hard in fact, that I find myself nearly missing the deadline for this post.  The point is, it stung.  Sometimes life draws blood — metaphorically speaking that is.  It might even feel for a time like we won’t survive it all….but we will.  I won’t make light of it as if an ill-conceived decision regarding a sofa can compare.  After all, we can’t return him like I did the Restoration Hardware Sofa that I decided didn’t fit my life view.  So instead I place my faith in a higher power, and turn to something(s) with a sunnier outlook.

Tacks that is, brass ones to be specific.  They are so in fashion  from stools to headboards, tables, and uber chic wall covering – brass tacks are a spot of sunshine in any house – they might even offer a little optimism in the House of Representatives.  Dare to dream.

The polls are saying they are trending toward a win.  I don’t want to steer you wrong, but there is something that is both classic and contemporary about furnishings adorned with these beautifies.  They add a little edge to something that might otherwise be prissy, and a little glamour to something that might otherwise be a bit dull.

With this pick – you’ll hit the nail on the head.
