Sometimes things happen and are a happy accident. I put this little shutter in my bathroom window for some added privacy. The window is a blurred, foggy glass but...well...I've seen what that looks like across the way and I don't think it's as private as it could be. Plus I love the rustic look.
Then, when I needed somewhere to stash my headbands (two came from Gussy Sews, the rosette one I made myself) and hair clips (dark one from Payless Shoes and the light one I made) and to hang a necklace (made by me) for a moment, they all went on here and I realized how great it worked for it.
I haven't actually managed to decorate much as I'm still trying to get all my books put away. I purged my books 4 times - FOUR TIMES - before I moved and I still have so many books that I have no room. I bought a huge bookshelf that I'm taking a month to put together. Yes, really.
I did manage to put a few things up in the kitchen though.
A utensil holder filled with dried elephant garlic blossoms and this beautiful little gourd I found at a farm stand.
If you can't tell by now, I love natural elements in the home.
As I get things put in their proper places, I'll have more to show. For now I have to get back to that bookshelf...
