I found another blogger that beat me to posting this idea. However, here is my version. As you can see I have some red trimmed white enamel pieces all acquired from my Mother.
Then, I had found a large plate holder and bought it thinking I would use it in the kitchen. It was too tall to sit on the counter under the cabinets. When I was redoing the entryway, I decided to use the plate holder and use the old fake plant to kinda hide the junk that eventually collects at the key station.
I think it depends on the mood of who is pricing things at Goodwill. Sometimes things like this cost around $3.50. So when I saw $1.75, I grabbed it not knowing what I'd really use it for at the time.
