I really don’t think about interior decoration very often. (I’m more likely to be thinking about things like “Where can I put these books?” or “I know I had another skein of blue yarn!”) But after writing last Saturday’s Friday Fictioneers story, I found myself pondering what sorts of decoratory things I actually do – and I realized that all the stuff I like best in this house (well, other than people and books) shares a certain eccentricity.
Several years back, one piece of my job involved building new PCs out of components. That meant that day after day, I wound up with a pocket full of twisties – part of the discarded packaging. So I used some of them to make a menagerie. Some of my critters are tripods, or have perky tails and big horns. Others have five legs and a trunk. I’m fond of them all.
What are your favorite things like?
