It's not brass, it's patriotic!


Ballard Designs "Leeds" pendant in "Liberty Gold," $379.

I was just about to pin this on my Big Rock Candy Mountain board because it's like the little black dress of pendants. It's well-priced and I'm sure I could use it somewhere in my new as-yet-unpurchased digs. But then I saw the finish is called "Liberty Gold" rather than brass, and I cracked up.

U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!

Hilarious!! I can totally relate, what with my own penchant for working in brass rather than gold. :) Gotta get that gold bling one way or the other!

All I can think is how often I'd have to get on a step ladder to suck flies out of it.

So did you end up pinning it? That spin kinda makes me ill....

The Pink Pagoda - I did not, Jennifer. The descriptor put me off, too. And Steve's concern entered my mind as well.
