We know that it is not in good taste because it lacks suitability and simplicity. It is not shaped correctly for a reading lamp. It has too many panels and fussy medallions. There are too many dangling ornaments on it.
This is the "hard copy" final version of that little 5 x 5 inch collage I stuck together last week, as opposed to the Photoshopped one. I used bits of curtain lace, an ornate stamp, a bit of wallpaper, a scrap of painted paper towel, a piece of a journal entry, text and image from an old decorating book, black and white crayons, and gold paint. The quote at the top of this blog entry is the text seen in the upper left of the collage. You'll also see General Rules and the number 3 within the collage, hence the title.
