My new favorite decorating site is shelterpop, http://www.shelterpop.com/. It has great information on design, color, gardening, crafty ideas…..You name it and you’ll most likely find what you need.
I loved the idea I found today and am inserting the article below. I’ve used bracelets for curtain tie-backs before but never ever thought to use them for napkin rings. What a great idea! I’m thinking one could find a lot of interesting unique bracelets at second hand stores or garage stores. Yep, an opportunity to be creative. :=)
Here’s the link to the napkin ring article, definitely want to give Jessica Cumberbatch kudos for her creativity….
Put your colorful bangles to use by refashioning them as napkin rings.

Gather a set with some seasonal association — and not much else has to match. Here are some of the pieces we’ve been eyeing to give our spring tables some fashionable flair.
