Sometimes You Find Just The Right Thing

I love to find new treasures and to play, and sometimes you just stumble upon just the perfect thing for one little spot in the house.


My bathroom is painted a really soft camel color and I use black and camel towels in it.  There is only room for one picture above the towel bar and it has some black and camel in it also, so I wanted to keep the color going.  I recently found new Frenchy accessories that I just feel in love with.  I love them on the counter, but I really need a centerpiece, so when I found this wonderful metal container in black and camel, it was just screaming perfect to me.


 Isn't it just the perfect container, and just a couple of silk florals and grasses make it the perfect size for the center of the counter.


Love, love, love it.  I am really easy to please, small things really thrill me.


 Totally compliments the new accessories.


 Ok, I am a happy camper.



What little thing have you found lately that just thrills you?

  5. You are right that it looks great there, Marty. The added height and fullness really softens the look. Little things make me happy too. Home items wise, this week my favourite find was the ironstone platter I found.

  29. Hi Again,
    I agree with you that vase and flowers is perfect in there and it all goes together so well, and looks very chic and pretty.

    I spent most of the day working on my porch, I have changed the colors, so have just a few more finishing touches to make. I want to move a few things from my bedroom out to the porch but I have to find something to replace them with first.

    Take care and have a good Sunday,
    Blessings, Nellie

  53. Marty,
    Your pictures came out great in your bathroom. So hard to with all the extra light.
    That is a really cute container. I really love the arragement you have on your tub. I could see it thru the mirror. LOL Is that dried roses in a vase?
    I wish that I still had a desk top computer, but as you can see, I have decided to keep this laptop and try and get familiar with it.
    Have a great week,
    Melissa
