Decorative Things

How do you spark the average hausfrau's interest in cleaning? Easy. Give her fashionable equipment. This little dustpan is $25 worth of pure cuteness. It's also available in 6 patterns, including my favorite, the red coral against white. Decorative Things, based in NYC and featured in Oprah, Shop Etc., and House & Garden, boasts entire lines of cute basic home necessities in irresistibly sweet patterns. Just one question, readers. When you view the dustpans on their website, why are they claiming, "Use it as a catch-all, candy dish or mail holder too." A candy dish? I don't get it. Someone, enlighten me already! Well, whatever you use your nifty dustpan for, enjoy shopping for delightfully decorative things! (photo: dustpan in Monaco Red)
