6 Quirky Knick Knacks For Your Home

I am always drawn to those random items and knick knacks that make me chuckle or just stare in wonder. You know, the type of decor item that make your parents wonder where you came from, because you are too strange to belong to them. Those kind of knick knacks are my favorite. Why, you ask? Because they make your home a happier place! All you need is one or two items that are odd and unique to make your whole space a lot more fun and interesting. And who doesn’t want their home to be interesting? When most people hear the term “knick knack” they think of a random item that has no use or functionality. On the contrary! Knick knacks can definitely have a use, and they should, too. Even if their function is as small as holding flowers or keeping your bookshelf in order, they are still useful and awesome to have. Here are six quirky knick knacks with functionality that you will love in your home. I know I would!
