Add Oriental Flair to your Home Decor

 A Few Oriental Items Will Add Punch to any Room


Imagine an Oriental tea set, a jade screen, a peacock on the wall, or a set of Chinese plates in a plate rack. From the bedroom to the kitchen, there are small items with an oriental slant to give your home a fresh look and polished style.

Personally, I have an eclectic home. I have combined styles to suit my personal feel for balance, usefulness and aesthetic. I like mixing and matching different styles.

Nothing quite beats a morning break with strong, hot tea served in vintage oriental china to make one relax and imagine faraway vistas. I find that setting the mood enhances the flavor of the tea, especially when combined with almond cookies.

Tea shared this way seems to encourage me to mind my manners more graciously than does drinking coffee from a mug.

I remember my niece asking after an inexpensive China tea service that she could use to teach her daughter table manners and social conversation. It must have worked, because her daughter is very well-mannered at the table.

 Other items of exotic style at Mertie's This and That include a

There are still numerous items on sale. Bargains range from 20% to 50% off. And don't forget to look at the vintage glassware from Indiana Glass Company and Fenton on both Valerie's shelves and on Mertie's shelves.

Tools, linens, plants, furniture, baskets, glassware, clothes and more. It is all here at Mertie's This and That.

There are even window blinds.
