A Vase Full of Arrows

I went ahead and got some arrows like I had wanted! They’re in Brandon’s office, four feet up and safely out of reach. Sweetshorn had sold out of arrows (though they’ve since been restocked), and so I bought mine on eBay.


I told Brandon that they were in his office because they’re manly. He then asked if I had also considered some other manly decorating ideas, like a bowl of knives or a fish tank of bullets.

    My husband is a police officer, and former Marine. I am a librarian and an artist. Blending feminine and over-the-top-masculine in our home (and a home full of daughters), has always been a challenge and is both frustrating AND funny! I think we do in fact HAVE a vase full of bullets, though not a fishbowl…yet. This is a great idea, Brandon. Look what you started! Thank you!

    So, this entry is old, but we actually *do* have a bowl of knives (and belt buckles) both of which my boyfriend collects, sitting in the living room. I was hesitant about it when he moved in, but it’s surprisingly nice on the coffee table. It makes my thrift-store/bohemian floral/librarian cottage a bit more manly, while somehow fitting in to the general colorful/vintage look.
