A little rearranging

The good part about yard sales and antique shopping is you get some neat new things to put around the house. The bad part about yard sales and antique shopping is you get some neat new things to put around the house.

You find awesome bargains then you come home and have to figure out where to put them. I did a little rearranging yesterday to incorporate some of my latest finds.
This was the little basket I got Friday. I am going to paint it eventually, but until I do I wanted to start using it so I put it on my desk to hold note pads and ink pens.

I am still using the magazine rack I found to keep file folders in. It is working out very well. 

My little bunny from Friday found a home on this shelf. 

A few weeks back I bought a thermos pitcher. I fill it with ice and water every morning and keep it in my office. I am looking for the perfect glass to compliment it, but so far I haven't found one so I am just using this little cup. I put everything on a platter I had. I really want some type of pretty serving tray, but haven't found one yet. This is a work in progress but at least I have water handy all day without having to go to the kitchen all the time. 

I haven't been to the beach in going on three years now. My daughter went back in June and she brought me some Myrtle Beach sand and seashells so I put together this little display on top of the TV in the kids room. I put the sand in a jar and stuck a tea candle in it, surrounding the candle with the shells she brought back and tied a bow and glued one of the shells on the bow. So if I can't go to the beach....she brought the beach to me. Please note that I am probably the only person in the world that puts sea shells in a little antique candy dish (on right)

I love rearranging.

Your opening paragraph is too funny and all too true! I think that's why CL won't take me yard sale-ing! Your basket and bunny are so cute!
