In these last few years, my appreciation for all things “less than perfect” in home decor has grown. As a newlywed, I remember registering for glassware and looking at my perfectly matched goblets. They were symmetrical and appropriate, but they lacked, what I now pinpoint, as warmth.
They’re beautiful, but just a bit too perfect for who I have grown to become.
Now, I embrace my masterfully mismatched glassware because it’s a reflective representation of who I am… far from perfect, and continually evolving.

Whether I display my thrifted glassware  in our family room with flowers or create a beautiful tablescape to welcome friends during some homestead hospitality, somehow mismatched glassware just makes me feel welcome and at home, embracing the “it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful” mentality.

I share in the video how I love to find glass bottles, cups, glass plates…any assortment of items with pretty lines. The simplicity of glassware can be elegant by just using a variety of items in a tablescape or even by purchasing a few cans of $1 spraypaint and having fun adding a punch of color with any type of glassware.

There’s so much variety available in home decor if you forget some of the rules of “perfection.” I love the hunt of finding trash to treasure pieces, and it’s even better when I score beautiful pieces for just a few dollars.

 How about you? Don’t you just love making something beautiful out of every day bits of nothing? 🙂
