And two china horses that sat on my grandparent's mantle for many years (since the 70s). I have two larger plaster horses (in storage) that are probably from the 50s as well. Needless to say, I was a horse-loving little girl and always admired these as a child. Now they are mine to enjoy. (oh, and most of the walls of our apartment are painted various shades of brown!)
I did not like brown until I was in my 30s - now most of my wardrobe is browns, greens, natural colours. Brown is a very underrated colour in my books!
