Dorm Dec Wednesdays: Kah-Nick Kah-Nack

How ever you feel about knick knacks (having just a few, one is absolutely enough, or pile 'em high) some of them you can't deny.  Sometimes they are quite the conversation piece & sometimes they are just too much.  I am a "pile 'em high!" type of person with the knick knacks.  I have so many, it makes my room look like gaudy city.....but, alas, that is who I am.

I am sure once I have my "own place" (whatever that means) I will cut down on the college cuteness & be more serious about my use of accessories in decorating.  I like a home to look lived in, like my parents home, where snow globes grace the piano & gnomes sit on the mantel.  In fact, I am sure that my love of gnomes comes from my grandmother who has quite a few in her garden & in her home.  We are also the type of family where when its Christmas our houses look like the North Pole! Every Xmas since I remember is piled high with sentimental ornaments & kitschy, glittery decorations.  I love it!

Here are some Knick Knacks I would die for:

  1. This Green Ceramic Owl from Fruit Fly Pie on etsy.  So freakin' cute!
  2. These two Birds (also ceramic) from CNJ Ceramics on etsy.  The description mentions using them as a cake topper.  I think that's an awesome idea!
  3. Finally, in my favorite color, a little Schnauzer figurine from Green Cricket's etsy shop. 
Stop by these lovely shops & browse around.  Such great things!

Are you obsessed with something in your home? Do you have too many of one thing?

Happy Wednesday!

  1. Moe, I am constantly obsessed with junk. Like mirrors, picture frames, and glaze. I think that we tend to love something and especially us thrifters buy it anytime we have a chance....I love the ceramic stuff you highlighted in this post. Especially that little owl, he needs to live at my house!

    love your guts
