  1. Wonderful! Love all of these, I think my favourites are the tiny lattice houses, so pretty and perfect to display little treasures, and the corner shelves which are ideal for everything from books to pretty plants to family photos or displaying much loved collections. We have picture ledges everywhere in our home. They’re ideal for so many uses and don’t intrude much into the room so add storage without taking up valuable space. We have two in our bathroom, one is directly under a large mirror and gives me somewhere to put make up or hair items while I get ready for work and another acts as a favourite book display in our book nook 🙂 Fabulous post as always, thank you for sharing x
