Surfaces are sometimes tough for me. I would love for the table tops and surfaces in my home to have that "on purpose" look. I want my surfaces to not only be functional as table tops but to also have beautiful hand-picked objects on display. Usually the objects adorning my table tops are a set of keys, a half drunk Pepsi ringed with condensation and a stack of bills. Ugh. Remember that line from Steel Magnolias? "The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize." Well it applies to throw pillows and flower arrangements as much as it does earrings and scarves.
