I love to collect items to use in my home decorating projects. I mostly get my little treasures from the thrift store or shop around at home goods stores when there is a sale going on.
The most important finds that I treasure are those that I collect when on vacation or traveling to another destination.
Little finds that are unique to and bring back sweet memories of certain destinations are my best picks.
Each ornament or work of art that returns home with me either from a trip abroad or a visit to the thrift finds a place at home where it is displayed. I try not to overwhelm the spaces.
I lay out the decorating plan (sometimes on paper) and then choose pieces that blend together to give the space a certain theme. I also consider colors and shapes that work well together. It’s all about eye candy. The visual effect of uniquely coordinating pieces of art and objects.
