This beautiful mosaic vase caught my eye while out thrifting last week. As I stood there trying to decide whether I might "need" it, I saw the original price sticker from Pier 1... $49.99. It was at that moment that I grabbed a shopping cart. Surely there was somewhere I could use it. Incidentally, the lantern next to it in the photo came from the same thrift store several years ago.
I guess it was a good thing I grabbed the cart because soon these wooden candle sticks were added. I know these can be pricey. To find a set of three was definitely a good find in my humble opinion.
Once home, I went from room to room assessing where I might best use these newfound treasures.
I liked the way the colors worked with the comforter and picture in the guest room. So, I shopped the house for a few more things and gave the dresser a little refresh.
While shopping the house I also rounded up a few items for this new shelf. It didn't come from the thrift shop (I wish), but it fills a wall that I've been trying to fill ever since I moved here. The wall is between the kitchen and a little hallway leading to the powder room. I've been looking for something other than another picture. When I saw this shelf, I thought it might be just the thing. I added a battery operated candle to give it a bit of ambience for those headed to the powder room in the evening hours ;). I think it will be fun to change up for the seasons and holidays too.
Destination: Powder Room
I guess this explains why I wanted something other than a picture on this wall.
These little projects have come at a good time. It's been unusually cold here for this time of year. In fact, the furnace is still running. Usually by now we've had the A/C on for a month or so. Yesterday it never made it out of the low 50s and rained all day. A good day to stay in my slipper socks and sweater.
Also a good day to finish my puzzle.
