Things I'm looking for: glass containers of various heights and sizes, unused ornaments, fake snow, little white lights, lamps and anything else that strikes my fancy (I think I've got a feather boa wreath hanging around somewhere).
One more thing ... there's no right or wrong way to put things together. All that matters is that it's pleasing to your eye! Here's something I came across that inspired me to try a little closet shopping of my own.
currently watching - The Holiday
Before - gathering supplies
After: I couldn't find my fake snow. I think there is a box of Christmas decorations MIA so I'll have to look and see what I can find. Also, I think my display needs a little filler but this is all I have so it'll have to work for this year. I'm going to keep my eyes open for some great looking greenery after Christmas and see if I can get a great deal. All in all, I love love the effect the decorations have in bringing some sparkle to that little corner.
