The Leaning Tower of Bookshelf...

So a few years late, I have finally bought in to the "look" of the leaning bookshelf.  And since Andy and I still have not used up all of our Bed, Bath, and Beyond gift cards from the wedding (and I found a bookshelf on their website that I liked)...I decided it was time to bite the bullet.  I have so many beloved knick-knacks and framed pictures packed away in a box because I have utilized all of the good spaces in our home.  What's a girl to do?  Buy a display piece of course!  Here is our newest furniture addition...

AAAHHH!  It's empty!  As exciting as it will be to fill this piece, it is intimidating as well.  Therefore, I am going to look to bookshelves that have already been filled by people far more skilled than I am...

Okay--I LOVE this one.  Of course, they have used three of these shelves, but I love the wicker baskets, moss balls, and black frames.  I can do this (hopefully)!

I like this one as well.  What a nice transitional piece to the kitchen!  Notice the apothecary-ish jars at the bottom--so cute!

Yet again, we have the green, mossy accents.  I am also loving the white lantern.  Anyone else LOVING lanterns in decor???  A great way to house all of my cheapo candles!

So, we shall see if my "filling" skills can shine and make my bookshelf look anything at all like these.  Are there areas (bookshelves, mantles, tabletops, etc.) in your home that you need to accessorize but you feel completely intimidated to do so?  Google-Image the hoot out of that spot and see what awesome pictures you can find.  Why reinvent the wheel when you can copy, copy, copy?!?
