Agate Bookends

Anyone who owns a valuable book collection, particularly if it is a collection that may one day be worth a significant amount of money if they are resold will require solid bookends to ensure the books aren’t ruined.

The safest way of storing valuable books – well, any books really – is to stand them on their ends but this can lead to problems if they are neglected. Unless the books fit perfectly on the shelf they are going to lean in one direction or another and this can result in the spines of the books canting to the side.

Buying bookends will ensure your books will always be store vertically and when you look for bookends you will find that there is quite a selection of decorative and interesting bookends for sale. A particularly attractive set is agate bookends. Just a thought but these bookends would really suit a set of books that were related to the geology field.

Not only do agate bookends provide an interesting texture to the room they may also provide some color. You will see from some of the beautiful agate bookends available they can be particularly attractive with vivid colors that will really stand out.

When agate has been sliced and polished it becomes a particularly beautiful looking stone. Bieng a stone it is also quite heavy so it will provide a solid foundation that will ensure the books remain propped upright.

Agate is a naturally occurring rock that occurs as nodules in volcanic rocks containing silica and the colors are created in regular layers creating a banded or striped formation. These layers are the result of the variation in the cooling process as well as the mineral content as the molten rock solidifies.

The natural beauty coming from a pair of agate bookends will sit up in a prominent spot in the room when they sit on bookshelves. They are usually cut into quarter sections so that the beauty of the stone faces out into the room. Colors such as pink, purple, blue, green and combinations of each provide a wide range to choose from. The type of agate you should strongly consider is sold as Brazilian agate and the bookends that are made from Brazilian agate are highly prized.

You don’t have to be a lover of rocks and rock formations to appreciate the beauty of agate bookends and there are many different types for sale giving you the opportunity of furnishing your bookshelves with a pair.

The thing to remember is that every pair of bookends are naturally occurring geodes that are completely unique and the patterns that are formed will not be replicated. With many of these bookends you can make out the bubbles of mineral deposits that make up the many coloured effects and even the stones that appear to be less colourful are actually amazingly detailed in their subtle layers.

In some respects it would be a shame to position these bookends at the end of a long line of books because they would look most effective propping up only one or two thin books. This way you would be able to make out the way in which the agate was formed. All the same, the detail of the agate will still stand out when placed at either end of a long bookshelf.

Just about anything bright and fun will qualify as a great example of children’s bookends such as a pair of porcelain children reading books, or hand painted wooden bookends that can feature just about any design or teddy bears made from plaster and given a beautifully painted finish.

Bookends for kids may feature a simple design or can be far more decorative and still hold pride of place on the shelf at either end of a row of picture books. Look for dinosaurs, pixies, elfs, dogs, cats or horses. Even the latest favorite movie will more than likely bring out a range of bookends featuring characters that the children will love.

You will find some of the most beautiful Norman Rockwell plates for sale on eBay where thousands of them are offered every day. Take a look at those that are available for sale right now.

Norman Rockwell collectable plates are part of this phenomenon and feature the paintings of Norman Rockwell. As well as providing a stunning decorative object that is in a compact size, the Norman Rockwell collector plates give you a chance to enjoy some of the beautiful paintings created by a talented artist in a way that becomes its own work of art.

Displaying these plates, either singly or as part of a more extensive display, may become a difficult problem to overcome, particularly as the collection grows. The problem of where it may be displayed and how many of the collection, let alone exactly which ones should be displayed, will have to be overcome on a daily basis. If there is not enough room on the walls, a display case that has been especially designed for showing plates might have to be bought.

The Norman Rockwell plates have been released in small collections giving collectors the opportunity to purchase a single theme, a single style or to mix and match as they see fit. Some collectors may simply decide to collect plates based on the company that produced the plate. Some examples include the collections from The Bradford Exchange, Heritage House, Gorham or The Danbury Mint to name just four.

It is possible to spend a lifetime collecting Norman Rockwell plates and not come anywhere close to completing it. A wise move would be to pick an area to specialize in and complete this collection before moving on to another.

As well as the pleasure they will bring as collectable objects they also make terrific wall decor ideas.

Be Bold And Use A White Eyelet Curtain

There are many ways in which the room can be lightened while it is also in the process of being darkened and using white curtains is the perfect way to go about this. A white curtain provides an almost ethereal feeling to the room, particularly when it consists of a flowing fabric that falls nicely. A great way to get a tremendous effect is to try a white eyelet curtain. The pleats of these curtains fall symmetrically and provide a perfect backdrop to the room.

The use of white eyelet curtains can provide a means of highlighting the decorative appeal of other objects in the room. They can provide a background to show off the colours of a lounge setting or they can complete a French country look.

By using white eyelet curtains you will be effectively allowing the curtain rod to become an important part of the window display. A dark curtain rod such as a black wrought iron curtain rod will become a very distinctive feature as it disappears and reappears in and out of the eyelet holes at the top of the curtains. With decorative filigrees at either end this can become a particularly spectacular display.

In some ways the choice of white curtains is a particularly bold statement because rather than being plain looking they will stand out against the other colours in the room. It is unusual for the lack of colour that it provides in the room and relies on something else to make them look special. It may be the fabric that you choose for them or it may be the fact that the curtains are hung using eyelets or it may simply be the surrounding furnishings that draws the entire combination together.

It may also be possible to dress the curtain display up a little with some decorative curtain tiebacks, whether you choose to use a coloured cord or an antique curtain tieback to provide some old-charm in a simple yet very effective way.

Here are some more ways in which you can use eyelet curtains to decorate your home.

Place A Ceramic Water Dispenser In the Kitchen

Not everyone likes to drink water from the tap with the concern that there are a lot of impurities to be found that must be filtered out. Drinking bottled water need not mean that you have to fill the refrigerator with water bottles that have to refilled in a continuous basis. It can also provide you with the chance to add a decorative feature to the kitchen if you decide to buy a ceramic water dispenser.

Ceramic water dispensers are capable of containing a lot of pure drinking water that is filtered as it is dispensed. It is possible to find decorative ceramic water dispensers that will not only provide you with a source of cool water but it can provide a feature that adds style value to the room.

Some of the most gorgeous water crocks are available in a range of stylish colors. Placed on wooden or metal stands they can help to define a room’s style. A country style kitchen that has a ceramic water dispenser in the corner may be decorated in a suitable country style such as with a rooster logo on the side or a floral display. This idea can be used for all decorative styles including a modern contemporary style.

Something that many people may not consider is that using a ceramic water dispenser can result in large savings when compared to other water dispensers. A ceramic water dispenser is reasonably inexpensive and it is a one-time expense, once you have bought your water crock it will not be necessary to buy another. When the water has been placed inside the crock it will be kept naturally cool thanks to the ceramics and this means there is no electricity costs involved.

If you don’t have the room required to add a water dispenser on a stand, there is a water dispenser design that provides you with the ability to sit it straight on the countertop. A ceramic countertop water dispenser will provide you with exactly the same handy method of supplying bottled water but it can be moved into the corner of the kitchen where it may be easily accessed but still be out of the way.

Not only will they provide a nice feature for the room thanks to their shape and size they will also reduce the number of times that the refrigerator door has to be opened and closed. For only a small outlay these ceramic crocks can become an integral part of the kitchen.

It may also be possible to match an existing stoneware jug or decorative antique whiskey jug with your ceramic water dispenser to further integrate it into the decor of your home.

Apart from the look of chrome tie backs, which can provide a very clean sight on the wall, sitting either side of the curtain, one of the major benefits of using them is that they are quite inexpensive. Yet they don’t look cheap. In fact, some of them are virtually works of art, such is the delicate work that has gone into turning them into a decorative asset.

Chrome is quite a strong metal that will be capable of holding back curtains that are fairly substantial in weight. This means that you will be able to use a couple of different styles of curtain tie backs to effectively hold back curtains of varying material weights. The most common style of chrome curtain tie back that would be appropriate is the hook style of tie back. These U or V shaped tie backs are capable of holding back substantial amounts of material without the risk of the curtains slipping out of place. They can also be simply mounted into the wall where they will remain firmly fixed.

You may find chrome curtain tie backs in either very plain or simple designs that will remain inconspicuous while performing a necessary duty. But it is also possible to buy them with just a slight amount of decorative detail that can add some interest and work in nicely with some other items of chrome design in the room.
