I just love this "stuff", (thank goodness, because I have a lot of this "stuff".) I decided it was for storage, I could keep my dust here, keep it from floating willy-nilly through out the house. Almost everything I get is from the thrift store, given to me by like minded friends, bought at K-Mart, like the glass Martha Stewart storage dishes, or purchased at the antique store at any price, because it matched something that I already had.
I think I have my share of cute "stuff" and I feel like a millionaire. When it gets too dusty I even enjoy washing, drying and rearranging it. Almost everything has at least one chip missing which is good, because if it gets broken, it's not the end of the world. As much as I like my cute "stuff", if a friend needs a piece to go with their "stuff", they can have it. Easy peasy.
