Do you have certain thrift store items that you alway scoop up? I have this thing for finials...I always grab them up an there they sit. Although they do look quite lovely all together in a bowl, I also had a large quantity of assorted candleholders from an event I decorated for at church last Christmas. And the "marriage" of these 2 thrift store finds make a pretty little "set about".
For this grouping I chose similar colored finals in differing shapes...but the options are endless. A little industrial strength glue and you're all set.
I love how they look all clustered together. And like always for me...super easy too :)
