I have never been a fan of knick knacks (or chachkas as others call them). In fact, I go out of my way to keep them at a minimum in my house unless it is part of a vignette. Then I bend the rules (cause' it's my house and I make the knick knack rules).
So let me repeat, I am not a fan of knick knacks....until I met Ralph and Lillie and made an exception.
|(L) Ralph, (R) Lillie|
|This is where Ralph and Lillie spend their every waking moments (and sleeping nights). Remember people, these are knick knacks and they can't go anywhere.|
|They tend to look at each other a lot and monitor everything I do in the kitchen.|
|As you can see, they noticed immediately.|
|They seemed to have issues with the print on the right.|
|Ralph took Lillie aside and assured her she was still the prettiest one in the room.|
|Lillie turned around for another look. There were a few more minutes of hesitation on her part.|
|Finally she told Ralph she would tolerate the prints as long as she always got to stand front and center stage. Ralph said he would have it no other way.|
|Both have gone back to their daily discussions and kitchen monitoring. |
All is good.
