. . . . . brown paper packages tied up with strings,
these are a few of my favorite things.

Do you own something you like so much that you want it around
you all the time?  Even if it doesn't exactly fit in your decor?



 Why not decorate with a vintage surf board?!

 Peacock Feathers
The beautiful kimono makes an arresting wall hanging.

Which is more charming - the Clara
Bow(ish) photo or the functional tool chest?

The Decorista
Even though we live at the lake, I don't know
that I could find the right spot for this gold fish. 

The unusual and the unexpected not only add a touch of panache to any style
but also show your sense of humor.  Go ahead, display your favorite things.


  1. Ha! The gold fish gave me a chuckle! Your post made me think about what I have in my house that I can't live without.....hmmm...I guess it would be the ceramic red fox that belonged to my grandma. When my husband first saw it, the look on his face said it all!

    1. I have a Victorian vase that's truly 'dramatic' and whenever one of the kids teases me about it I threaten to leave it to them in the will! It really is hideous but strangely charming, too!

  2. I love all of these strange combinations. It really gives the room a punch of personality! so many colors and conversation starters for sure. Very interesting. I agree the fish is pretty funny :0
