New Old Things

Putting away all of my accessories to make room for Christmas decorations and then having to put them back out really made me re-think some of the things I had on display.  I did some purging and was able to find places for some things that I already had, but hadn't been able to make room for because there was stuff that I'd just gotten used to taking up space.  One of the things I was able to make room for was an old typewriter that's been sitting in a closet for a year and half.  I love it and it's way cooler than what I had in it's place before.  Even just rearranging some of my accessories made my living room feel a bit fresher.  I put my mister in a new place and kept out one of my birch candles to take the place of an old accessory that I got rid of.  The best part is that I spent zero dollars, but I still have the feeling that I've changed and improved the decor in my living room.  I'd love to hear some of the free or low cost things that y'all do to keep your spaces fresh without running out and buying all new stuff.

Speaking of accessories...The Nester did a cute post about "accessories on parade."  I'm so guilty.


  1. That typewriter and the vignette looks so good, Aaron! Sometimes I just move things around to different rooms and other times I pack them up and use totally different stuff. Then in six months or so, I relook at the original stuff.

  2. I really like what you did and wouldn't change a thing. =)
