This woven rattan box needs a little lovin' (you can see where there was previously a ribbon around the seam but now only the glue remains). But it's nothing that a little ribbon or rope can't fix. It still had the original price tag on the bottom. It was originally $21.00, and I got it for $.79!
These boxes are perfect for hiding things you use often but don't want in sight.
I've mentioned in other entries how I have a newfound love for brass. So naturally, I couldn't resist these candlesticks. So charming.
I haven't decided where I want to put them yet, but I love them grouped together.
Remi wanted to snuggle while I was down on the floor taking pictures. Don't you just love that sweet face?
I've been eyeing these glass decanters in stores for awhile now so when I saw this one for $1.99, I snatched it up. These are great for holding water (on your nightstand) or for orange juice at the breakfast table.
I probably need another vase like I need a whole in my head, but I loved the shape of this one (only $.89) and can't wait to get some flowers in it!
Here they are next to each other on the table for size comparison.
I thought these sifting baskets would make a great statement over a fire place or in a space with high ceilings--neither of which we have now. But I got them anyway because they were only $.99 each, and we should be moving in the next 6 months or so. I'm hoping to be able to use them in our new home. I found one just like it for sale on eBay for $28.00! Excuse Remi's bottom-he was just trying to give you a perspective on their size :)
They are actually the same size, but you can't tell because of the angle I took the shot.
Perhaps if I find some more, I could also use them to make a statement like this (image via Apartment Therapy).
This basket was $1.59, and I thought it'd be great holding firewood or throws in the living room.
And last, but not least I got these two wooden lamps.
I love their shape and the cutout ring details on the bottom of the base. I plan on painting the bases a solid color (not sure what color yet) and using them on a console table behind the couch. Again, these may not be in use until we move, but I couldn't pass up the deal.
Since I want to keep the current linen lamps shades, the whole project will cost about $33 ($15 for each lamp and $3 for a can of spray paint). There's no way I could find another set of huge lamps like this anywhere else for $33!
P.S. Happy 10 month anniversary to me and my hubby!
