Useful and beautiful

Have nothing in your home that you don't know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.
~William Morris


If you had these, would you keep stuff in them? (Would they be both useful and beautiful or just beautiful?)

They are truly beautiful. And I think I would try to keep beautiful (or even just interesting) items in them.

Incredibly beautiful. I would store precious things in them.

This post caught my eye, Sorry I missed it earlier. Wow, how lovely each one is. Yes, I suspect I would keep something in them, just as the others above have shared. Thanks, Tabatha!
