Pier 1 Update: Ceramic Branch vases, birdhouses, and Foo Dogs

Last week Laure blogged about some of the latest things happening at Pier 1. The other night we stopped our local one to take a gander firsthand and saw a bunch of accessories that aren't listed on the catalog or website...

We fell in love with these white ceramic branch vases! They each have a cute little bird on them and they come in two sizes. The smaller one is about $15 and the larger is about $18.

We also liked these ceramic hanging bird houses. At first glance we were attracted to the unusual shape, and then realized they're actually supposed to mimic seashells. One is more of a snail shell shape and the other is more of a conch shell. These were also under $20.

Finally, if anyone was looking for a Foo Dog to add some chinoiserie to their decor, they had these turquoise ones that looked pretty good (although they are not ceramic but seemed more like plaster painted to look ceramic.) If you want to go with something a bit more authentic, we found a few online that all seemed to run about $195, but if you want the look for less, these at Pier One were $20 each. Overall, like Laure, we weren't overly wow-ed but there definitely are some good finds there, and a bunch that aren't shown in the catalog. Has anyone else been in lately and saw anything they liked?
