pretty lovely ideas.

while i love shopping and searching for large items for gifts, decorating or designing, i also really love the pretty little lovely ideas as well. sometimes it's the big things that complete a space & sometimes it's the little things. today we'll go with the little things...

hand~painted brocade bar glasses and simply beautiful mercury orbs from hudson. imagine adding these to aid in decorating or entertaining. imagine a table top with gobs of these shiny mercury orbs sprinkled around and those bar glasses strewn about. super festive!

these serving decanters from fish's eddy are just plain ol' fun! give cheer this holiday season with these "cheer up" decanters. and imagine adding wine to them instead of milk? oh i can! your guests would really cheer up then. ;)

while we're taking a look at pretty decanters, why not add this beautiful set to your collection for bed time refreshment? from flutter.

really pretty block print cloth napkins from burke decor. i have to use cloth napkins. they are so completely civilized to me. i can't help it! plus i love having a kitchen cupboard stacked with mis~matched napkins. these would be a perfect addition.

i just think these are magical, soft and oh~so~pretty! hand~blown glass orbs with natural floating plumes from abodeon. and you want to know something else? they're only $6.00 each. ah, yeah, so you need to run and buy a bunch!
how festive is this bubble vase, from cb2? a hand~blown glass block, for a "3~d bubblicious!" flower display.

how super sweet are these tiny terrariums? i absolutely love these! run & grab bunches of these, from flora grubb gardens.

what are some of your favorite little things? do you break out oldies but goodies or have you bought something new & little this year for the holidays that is just making it all that more fun? i'd love to hear!

ah, i think yesterday i thought it was friday already by the sound of my post. my head is pushing the weekend faster than it's coming i'm afraid ;) but we are here now, so i'll repeat myself and say happy friday and enjoy your weekend! try to stay calm and carry on with all of the shopping and decorating...have fun!
