It started about a year go when I saw a gorgeous mango wood tray, I bought it, put an air plant on it and it lives on my mantle.
Then I saw a bamboo tray, had to buy it. For a bit it was on my desk as a coaster/mail sorter but now it's on my dining table as part of a really simple centerpiece.
Then, I bought another one. This time for my leather ottoman in my family room for an attractive remote holder/candle burning/drink setting surface.
This wood is just so pretty! If I could have a bamboo butcher block island that looked like the tray on the ottoman, I would. I'm done with this though. I have to be. I get obsessed and suddenly the one cool thing is everywhere in my house and it's no longer cool. I've done it with mason jars, insulators, globes, type press blocks and now these trays. Oh, and the birds. I'm officially out of surfaces to put a bird on.
Am I alone or do you get tunnel vision when you find something you love ?
