I don’t normally post about home decor, unless it’s DIY, but this time I just wanted to share how something random, bought on a whim,, transformed my living room and made that one small part of it (aka my console table) complete.
I got these feathers a week ago at the Minnesota State Fair. They were only a $1 each at the International Bazaar (which does by the way have a Russian booth!) and I couldn’t simply pass by.
So after spending all afternoon wandering around the Fair Grounds with these feathers sticking out, I was amazed they actually made it home that night.
To be honest, I wasn’t going to put them in a vase. I did have a different spot for them in mind, but they never made it there!
Instead they were dropped off on the console table that I freecycled a couple years ago, next to these two frames, one being a cross stitch by my dear friend Tamara, reminding me where, when and who I married And the other is a picture version of the latter.
Once I sat down and actually looked over where the feathers were, I knew that it’s where they belonged.
So then the vase hunting began. From Target to TJ Maxx, to Marshall’s to finally – BINGO – a thrift store (this time it was Salvation Army) during a Labor Day sale, this beauty ended up costing me only $3.50 plus tax!
Ding Ding Ding we have a winner thought I…
Now to find the lamps…
PS. Check out these salt and pepper shakers Sam’s friend Blake brought me from England:
One of them is a London Guard and the other is The British Gentleman! Can you guess which one is which? LOL
