1. I totally agree with that statement and love those vases!

  2. These are so adorable. I think it will be a good one for a collection.

  3. My decor philosophy is to surround yourself with stuff you love, because even if it doesn’t all match, everywhere you look will be something that makes you smile.

  4. Cute! And I totally agree. I love having little “jollifiers” around the house. My husband would probably just call them knick knacks, lol. But I adore pretty little things tucked here and there. Makes a home feel lovely, lived in and personal.


  5. Oh yes! They are perfectly cute! :)

  6. Ohhh! They’re totally “jollifying”, my mom would love them! I think I’m gonna buy them as a Christmas present for her. When she went to Denmark she came back with lots of little funny things and everyone who visits notice and love them :)

  7. Those are pretty cute vases! They would look really good with some ivy type of plant trickling down! Nice find!

  8. The cute clay housewares by Creations Li (a Montreal artist) always make me happy.

  9. Hey! Those vases are made in Spain! They are getting quite popular here and you can find them in the coolest shops and homes. Actually I’ve one in my desk ;-))

  10. I love The Perfectly Imperfect Home! It’s one of my most beloved coffee table books. I have a nasty habit of buying coffee table books so I have to use a full size harvest table behind my sofa to act as coffe table (and its tall enough to keep the kiddos at bay). Its also where I end up putting my “jollifiers:)

    Anyway, I always make sure her book is on top of one of the piles. Because of that book I have a gigantic basket full of toilet paper in my powder room and frames of family pictures everywhere. That book is so fun and helpful.

  11. These are cute! I have the same design philosophy. My home is filled with items my daughter and I love.
    For several years I drove one of the new VW Beetles. Every time I saw my car I smiled!!

  12. I love these kind of posts! Thanks for finding fun and quirky things Joanna.

  13. I can’t justify spending that much on a pot no matter how cute they are :(

  14. While the word “jollifer” is new to me, the concept is not, and I could not agree more! Thanks for the smile :)

  15. I LOVE that book. It’s one of my favorites. Such a refreshing way to look at decorating the home and it is so beautifully illustrated. I plan of gifting several copies this holiday season. Thanks for sharing. With respect to the vases… funny enough, I scored two adorable vintage “Fred & Ginger” dancing vases by Fitz & Floyd, on ebay for under $10. Love them!

  16. A very good gift for the mother (or mother-in-law) who has everything as well! :) I like the concept of “jollifiers” it kind of goes back to Marie Kondo’s focus on only owning objects that bring you joy.

    By the way, I bought “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up” for my twin sister for her birthday and she LOVES it. Thanks for the recommendation!
