Another window at the mall.

I love the reflections in this and the odd mix of rustic stuff and faux-rustic stuff. Is faux-rustic a new genre? If so, should it be spelled faux-rustique? Just wondering, as that's something that would go over really big in Chicago. I rather like the combination of elements in here: the glass, the wood, the ceramic (kinda the wrong sort of ceramic for the wood, or maybe it's just too "modern" and not decorated in a rustic manner with hand applied glazes and such.) I do like the fusion, however, and the oddly science fictional feel this has. It makes me think of something I'd see in a George Lucas produced movie. This is a wonderful image! And I laughed aloud at what you'd said about defenestration; it is the Prague municipal sport! If there are going to be mysterious circumstances, it will involve a window, a person, and gravity...they're just careful to keep dung heaps away from all conveniently deadly patches of ground beneath conveniently high castle windows. (According to legend, one of the first free-fall participants in an early murder-by-window incident, the said victim was miraculously saved when he belly-flopped, or something like that, in a dung heap. It saved his life.) I am also pleased to see that the window featured in this photo (a gorgeous photo, by the way) seems to be sufficiently defenestration-proof.
Contrary to most, I do love the beautiful clean, white crockery with the plain linen on the sideboard? or buffet? or credenza? - anyway, I have also several baskets like this instead of cupboard doors and drawers in my kitchen, and your image is just so eye-catching attractive and a sight to behold for drooling and drooling and more drooling - did I mention ... very cool Tara, BB
