They buy art made by their friends and prefer pre-loved, comfy furniture or cast-offs. A rustic farm table that gets better with dents and scratches feels friendlier than a formal heirloom to them. Like other Millenials I know, they thrift for vintage accessories that make them smile rather than to be cool or score killer vignettes on IG.

    I think antiques add another layer to your home. I have one or two in each room, from an old painting to the biggest piece, a tall elegant curvy legged side table. I don’t like the heaviness of antiques though. A house filled with antiques feels stuffy to me. My advice would be to keep a few choice pieces and pass on the rest. But, we are all different and some love their antiques that they have collected or inherited over the years.

    My eldest daughter loves to find old pieces and give them a new lease on life. A coat of paint does wonders for the heavier pieces (side board). She mixes these in with her contemporary furniture for an interesting mix.

    I’m loving Back to Nature. It feels fresh! I might paint my office that colour. It would inject some energy into that room. My walls are all an off white colour, which I love, but that room has an old English desk on one wall and a built in Murphy Bed with cupboards and shelves on both sides that fills the other wall. I had the stain matched to a drawer from the desk. So, the furniture is all a mahogany colour and off white does nothing for it. I think a dose of green might be just the thing that room needs to brighten.

      Love your analysis, Joanna. I am with you on the weight that so many antiques bring into a space. They can weigh down the mood and be difficult to live with when you are more at home living on a cloud. And who needs stuffy!?! If a piece is a family heirloom, I find it is even trickier to live with because of the guilt if it’s holding the room back from feeling great. Isn’t Back to Nature an interesting shade? I am also thinking of trying it – but the next area I am tackling has very little light so it could be all wrong. I agree that mahogany could really feel refreshed with a yellow-green like this. 🙂

    Well you have certainly opened my eyes to the fact that I am definitely underutilizing this wonderful fruit. Your recipes have me so inspired that I think I must certainly make a pear upside down cake right away. I love pears on pizza and have usually accompanied them with blue cheese, but that recipe with goat cheese sounds divine. Well, I must say, as usual, your post takes the most in-depth view of the use of pears imaginable, from food, to front doors, to preventing osteoporosis!

      Thank you so much for indulging me and taking the time to peruse all the praise for pears. I know you’re upside down cake is destined to be even better than Lindsey Strand’s since you’ll make it your own and add magic. I can’t wait to make it as well and will have to order a larger cast iron pan since I just have my favorite wee one! Happy baking, and sending you big hugs from the heartland, friend. xox

    This post is so beautiful! Now I am craving pears! Luckily I have several Bosc pears down in my centerpiece in the dining room.

    A fun read on pears…which are so pretty in color & shape! I’m with you on making the pear upside down cake in a skillet & Lindsey makes it look so easy…although I’d have to use my hand mixer for all of it as I’ve yet to purchase a regular mixer. Saigon cinnamon from Costco is my FAV! Love it on everything and it’s so good for you to boot!!

      I just love ’em, and because I have had to eliminate so much from my diet, I feel like I need to celebrate and elevate the beautiful bounty of things that are still on the permissible list! I do think I could pivot and become a blogger of apple and pear recipes since it never gets old for me! Thanks for reading and your friendship, Amy. I’m off to a doctor’s appointment and then it’s more fall baking for me. 🙂
