I picked up this pretty ceramic bowl at Ross a couple of weeks ago. Only $8.99 and I think it might be my favorite thing in the entire house.
I tried to use it to corral our sunglasses, but then I got too antsy that one of the boys would knock it over trying to grab something on their way out the door. So now it's just for decoration. I try to only buy things that meet criteria for both form and function, but I also believe you should surround yourself with stuff that you love and useless or not, I totally love it.
