We bought a few items of furniture from our down-the-street neighbors who are, sadly for us, moving to Florida in a couple of months. On the bright side, they wanted to get rid of some of their stuff, so we took advantage. Most of it was basement furniture, but I did get a lovely corner unit out of the deal. I decided to find some decor for it today, and this is what I came home with:
I picked up the stuff on the top two shelves at Hobby Lobby. Yeah, I know I said I was never going to shop there again after The Shopping Cart Incident. But anyway, there are three vases, and the dark-looking thing on the right is a tiny wine-colored lampshade with little beads hanging off it. I fell in love with it, but they didn't have any stands there! So I have to buy one somewhere else. I hope I find one, or I'll have to return the adorable little thing. The middle shelf is just three candles, I think I need something else there, too. The bottom shelf contains two of my favorite cookbooks, and two bottles of wine. I had to choose those two because every other bottle we have, although much prettier to look at, is too tall for that shelf.
And I decided to do something useful with my yarn stash instead of having it take up space in my closet. See below:
