Acquisitive Instinct

I spotted this collection of bathtub plugs at an antique shop in Austin and it reminded me of Lisa Congdon’s fantastic A Collection a Day project, which is one of my must reads every day.

    Uncommon Objects? That’s one of my favorite places in Austin so far…

    Thanks for this, Maggie! I have added this to my favourites. It reminds me of “The Uniform Project” in its “check me out every day” quality.

    Why did the shower plugs make me feel a little uneasy? Do I need to take a shower? Clean my shower? Bathe my child? Will a monster creep up the drain and attack in the night? Art is so strange like that.

    It was Uncommon Objects, Desiree. I didn’t mention the name and link out because I was reprimanded for taking the photo. Apparently they’ve adopted a no cameras policy since I was there last, which is too bad.
