The hubby and I recently emptied a (really cheap) wine jug, and I thought, just for kicks, I’d see how it looked on the credenza. Lo and behold, it was just what I needed. The sea fan I got as a souvenir ($5!) on our winter beach trip needed a home, and I love how it looks in the jug.
The other star players are my owl (whom you may recognize from his on-camera debut in my Christmas video), and the gold lamp that took about five years to come together. (I got the base for $8 from Goodwill eons ago, and found the gold Anthropologie shade at Salvation Army recently. If it looks familiar, that’s because I scored two silver ones along with it, for our bedroom.)
This is a perfect example of why you should snatch up little chotchkes as you find them… otherwise how are you ever going to arrange your credenza? (For a great article on The Art of Display, head over to Chez Larsson.)
