I’m not sure when I figured this out (it took me years), but once I did, I really ran with it.
This little trick just works.
I use it for pretty, housewarming stuff like candles, books, and flowers. And I also use it for that thing I love most: putting things we use everyday on display.
Like Marni Jameson says:
I wonder if she would mind if I added: and put it on a tray.
