Since we're talking about trends, how about trophies?! I for one am absolutely in love with vintage trophies right now and I know I'm not the only one based on the bidding wars for them on ebay. I was able to find an adorable tiny one for our store but as of yet I have not found a great big one for home. I'll probably have to buy a reproduction to hold me over until I find one at a price I can justify.
My favorite reference to trophies right now though is from a commercial for a new show. Man asks woman what she does, she looks at him like he's an ignoramus and says in a duh tone, "I'm a trophy wife." I LOVE that!!
