a stroke of genius...

This past weekend, we made a trip to the Salvation Army and Goodwill stores not too far from our home.  I ended up buying some Christmas decorations and a couple of chairs for my next project.  I'll definitely share pictures of the chairs when they are done.  While there, I was happy to see people checking out a couple of ice boxes that were similar to the one we have in our guest room {here}.  It was nice to see other people like them too!

Anyway, my mom bought a pretty cool set of calligraphy brushes that were still in the wrapper.

A few years ago when she was visiting us in Los Angeles, she bought some calligraphy brushes and a stand in a small store in Chinatown.   Here they are standing in her home...

My mom is super creative and has a great eye for these types of things.  I attribute any bit of creativity I have to her.  I never would have thought to use these as a decoration.

Here are some other ways to use these as a decoration in your home.
