Hey guys! Hannah from Homemade Banana here again and this time I’ve got a lil’ something to brighten up your desk! Whenever I’m out vintage shopping, I’m always on the hunt for playful, unexpected objects to add to my shelves or my coffee table. I have a Dalmatian sculpture, a tiny gold telephone and a bright turquoise urn I’ve since planted with succulents, just to name a few of my treasures. But something seemed like it was missing and I wasn’t quite sure what it was until a couple of weeks ago. It was late and I was lying in bed when the idea struck me like a delicious thunderbolt—my desk needed a dose of fun in the form of a sprinkle pill paperweight filled with colorful gumballs!
Mary Poppins says that a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, and I say that a pill full of gumball sprinkles has a similarly delightful effect on one’s home decor. It has the benefit of looking good, sparking conversation and (when times get desperate and hanger looms large) a source of sugar-filled snacks. Really, what’s not to love?
