I selected pieces that are all very neutral so that they will work with almost every type of home decor…they are also affordable, so they won’t break the bank.

I have these hand towels and love them. They just add a special touch to the kitchen or bathroom.

A cutting board like this one is always useful…you know I love to display mine on my countertops, but you can also use them for cooking or to create pretty charcuterie boards. is also pretty and useful. 

The handmade feel of these plates is such a unique, artful look. I have dinner plates that are very similar and always get questions about and compliments on them. A set of four would make a beautiful gift.

add a beautiful touch to any home. Just order one and have it delivered on the day of the event as a special surprise for your hostess.
