I will fully admit to being a bit of a snoop. Not into people's business, but definitely into their houses. While I would never open a cupboard or drawer in someone else's house, I allow my eyes to freely roam and scan a room for every little detail. I take in everything on a mantle or table and feast on the titles on the bookshelves. I'm totally into looking at other peoples stuff.
Here's a snoop into my bedroom at what I keep on my dresser. A very old jewelry box holds my more precious Bits, the rest being tossed into a tray or hung on the old wall sconces. It's a good way to keep the necklaces from getting tangles, and I like seeing them all together in a bunch. The other sconce is draped with pretty ribbons that I can't face throwing away, so I keep them and think they look pretty dangling down under the light. The bamboo Chippendale chair is a favorite of mine. I actually found it on the road on Junk Day. The seat was all broken and I had my upholsterer make a new one with a little padding and a yard of fabric. My neighbor who chucked it out kicks herself every time she sees this chair looking so fine in my house.
