I love old books. I put them on tabletops to vary the height of the items and add visual importance.
I just found these on Wisteria.com . They are actually a resin box. My grandparents used to hide cash in a fake book. Hmmmm. Maybe, my jewelry or better yet, my chocolate stash.
They come in several colors and sizes.
The turquoise (above) are a cool way to add the color of the year to a traditional room.
Tons of other must see stuff on the site.
Look for a"Shopping spotlight" article on my Examiner articles page sometime soon.
