It's a mobile. (Sorta.)
I made it by tying white threads to the stems of a bunch of fake, decorative pears, and then tying each one to a hook in the ceiling. (First, I painted the pears gold, which I wrote about in an old post.) My place is getting crowded, and while I loved the pears, I just couldn't find a place for them on a table top... so I went vertical.
Hanging things from the ceiling is one of my new favourite things. I love waking up to my pears every morning. They remind me of a country kitchen and of a story I read as a kid about a girl who dreamt of a crown of pears, which was supposed to be a mesage to "find her country." (I'm probably not remembering it correctly.)
