Got any vases that resemble the ancient Chinese terracotta soldiers just sitting around collection dust on a shelf? I did, so I gave them new life as a necklace holders in my bathroom.
And just where did I get them? A lucky find. I found them on a back clearance shelf at a TJ Maxx's Homegoods store. (http://www.homegoods.com/). Only $7 a piece! They were quirky and fun, but not getting the attention they deserved.
I've been looking for something like this from fleamarket / thrift stores for a while. Maybe not a Phrenology head, but something funky that I can drape my necklaces over. But I had the perfect items all along.
