Little Match Girl Series

I live in a very wealthy neighborhood even though I make very little money myself. I was lucky enough to find a rent stabilized apartment over thirty years ago, and I don’t want to think of what my life would be like without it.

The only thing is, when I walk around sometimes, and look in the windows, I see such fabulous scenes of affluence I feel like the Little Match Girl shivering outside. Sparkling chandeliers, tall towering Christmas trees, amazing works of art around the apartment, lush furniture. I’m not anti-rich people, but I do covet their pretty things sometimes. I thought I would do a series of pictures of what I see. I just had a flash of deja-vu. I think I’ve had this idea and posted about it before. Just looked and I have!

This isn’t one of the scenes I just described, it just made me think of it. It’s a nice display though.
