Emily On Classic Home Decor
Fashion affects taste—it is bound to.
The only safe measure of what is good, is to choose that which has best endured. ...In the same way examples of old potteries and china and glass, at present being reproduced, are very likely good, because after having been for a century or more in disuse, they are again being chosen. Perhaps one might say that the "second choice" is "proof of excellence."
