Here is a glimpse on top of my dresser. I would have taken a picture of the whole dresser but it was messy :) So here is the corner. I have a little jewelry dish from Goodwill that I use to hold pins. In addition, I have my little notebook that I recently purchased from Beaded Tail.

Right above that hangs a little mirror. I also found this at a thrift store. Something about the fabric frame is so charming.
Here is the bookcase on the other side of my dresser. I got the blue vase for my birthday and originally had it in the living room. That lasted a day because the cat kept eating the fake plant. I moved it to a high place. You can also see the wire I rigged up to hold my particularly long/bulky necklaces.
Here is a fantastic letterpress calendar I ordered after Urban Craft last winter. I had wanted to buy one all weekend and when I finally went to get it, he was sold out. Luckily there were still a few online.

Finally, a set of paintings that my friend gave me for my birthday several years ago. She painted them herself which makes them extra special. They have hung in several different houses and apartments; I keep them with me every time I move.
What extra special pieces do you have in your home? Are they usually gifts? Handmade? Thrifted? Special splurge items?
