It took me 2 seconds to respond with "lanterns." I love lanterns and they can be so versatile to use in decorating. So I went around my house and looked at my lanterns so I could take pictures for this post.
I didn't find a single, not even one lantern that I've got out to use as an example. Hmmm....
So I thought, "Okay I love candles." Candles that's the correct answer. Nope only 2 candles currently being used in my spring decorating. Okay...
Flowers.. I do like flowers and I know, KNOW I use flowers in all my decorating during all the seasons. Be it faux or fresh I use flowers all the time. Now I've talked about using flowers several times and are flowers really a decorating tool? NO they are an accessory so I've got to find something I use as a tool.
So I thought books! I know I use books to decorate with. Books are very versatile as risers. I know I use books.... yeah NO. I could only find 1... ONE book that I'm currently using.
ONE. But hey it is a cute old book that I painted white and stamped with a script stamp. AND don't you just LOVE the dragonfly!
It is a Christmas tree ornament I got at Big Lot's 2 years ago... LOVE.
SOOOOOO - decorating tool.. I can do this! My husband tried to help he said, 'How about pictures? One's we've take on our adventures. Are pictures a tool? Yeah they cover the walls but this isn't what I was looking for.
My search continued through my small house to see if there is anything that stands out... I use a lot of metals....
I walked around my living/dining/kitchen and found that I use a lot of trays and cake stands a lot.
In my kitchen to hold sugar and creamers....
Also in the kitchen to hold fresh fruit.
Speaking of pretty...
I also use cake stands as risers.
This one really isn't a cake stand but a garden riser but hey...
So whew! I found some things that I use as decorating tools! I was sweating a bit there!
What tool or item do you use in your decorating? I'd love to see and hear about them.
