Finding My Niche

Happy Monday, everyone! How was the weekend? Did you relax? Cross a bunch of things off your list? Mine wasn't the most productive ever, but I did check something off that has been driving me crazy for ages.

My Illustration 

I've mentioned my obsession with all things blue and white before, and also that we are working on finishing the interior of our home. Just like the perfect bar stools, something I just haven't been able to find is an object to fill a recessed niche in the wall above the landing of our staircase. In the nearly three years we've lived here, it's stood empty, mocking me whenever I go up or down the stairs. But no more.

Thanks to the Intranet and Google and a dogged search over the weekend, this 38 inch Ginger Jar will hopefully find it's way to my doorstep step soon, and finally fill the niche! With any luck, I'll like it as much in person, but I think having anything to fill that void will make me very happy.

How about you? Have you been searching for the perfect something for your home for ages? What is it?


  1. These are pretty =) It's fun hunting things down for the house. I'm trying to hunt down a rug for my living room. I'm having a hard time finding anything though.

    I have a built-in bookshelf in my living room that I am just always searching for new things to fill, it just never seems right!
