Antler Chandelier

Pineland Farm, South Carolina from Garden & Gun, Nov 2014

I don’t mind wood paneling (tongue and groove) or framed pointer pups or even taxidermied crittters in lodges, but I’ve never been a fan of skulls. Not Coco-movie, Day of the Dead colorful human skulls, nor Southwest lying-in-the-desert animal skulls. So this chandelier (or perhaps it’s just rustic lighting) doesn’t float my boat.

I’d prefer something less bony, less death, more modern, like these super trendy Edison bulbs.

But they’ll probably look dated in 10 years.

How about a DIY project? I know mason jars are cute, but I honestly don’t even like drinking out of them in restaurants and bars that offer them. It’s supposed to be quaint and down-home, but lips just don’t feel good against jar rims–and now that cities are outlawing straws, what to do? While I admit I like the turquoise, I don’t cotton to this aesthetic. Looks like a clanky accident waiting to happen.

What do you think of these chandeliers at Albatross in Shinjuku, Tokyo?

No amount of liquor could help heal the headache she’d get if one fell on top of her noggin. And then we’d have another skull to worry about.
