Decor musings...

What is the most favored and universal decor accessory around the world? Flowers of course! I too love flowers at home - not elaborate bouquets, but a few sprigs here and there. I try not to use conventional vases to display them. A few stems in colorful bottles and in pretty bowls with some water can create a different look.

Yes, my turquoise crush continues :-) These inexpensive bottles give my breakfast nook a happy feel......
A table layout with flowers in a few bowls or even glasses can make  an interesting centerpiece! A good decor idea is simply what appeals to you and works for your home. Experiment, create, have fun, and keep sharing your thoughts:-)

Cannot agree more when you say that simple quirky things around the house give it that extra warmth. I have used green beer bottles as vases...and they looked just fine.
Your bottles look lovely....and I have a turquoise fetish too.
