It was time . . .
~ ~ as the first day of Summer is quickly approaching.
Time to add a bit of Summer in the room . . . so that meant, it went “Coastal”
My goal was to use what I had on hand.
Items gathered from a few rooms in the house . . and my stash in the attic . .
~ ~ the starfish topped bottle from Pottery Barn last year.
A sequined pillow found in the clearance bin at Pottery Barn a few years ago.
Faux coral topped glass bottle also by Pottery Barn last summer . .
~ ~ and a hurricane filled with beach glass and starfish.
A succulent embellished with shells rounds out the vignette.
While strolling the aisles of Melville Trading where I have a booth . . .
~ ~ I came across a booth that had many things on sale . . and saw this driftwood pillar.
There is a platform at the top of the pillar for a candle, etc. . .
~ ~ however, I chose to use it just as a decorative pillar of driftwood.
Another vignette needed to be created, so I grabbed the driftwood bowl . .
~ ~ that was waiting for me in the abyss of the attic.
I filled it with Antique Japanese Fishing Floats that my mom gave me many years ago.
Added the Premier Issue of Beach Cottages . . .
I can start to feel the sand between my toes . . .
~ ~ or is that dust?!!
And speaking of dust . . .
~ ~ the dust is still trying to settle in the creation of “my sweetie’s space” . .
As I have stated, she will be hands on in the completion of her space.
Here is one of the projects she is working on:
She was doing a great job . . and after a while of seeing her reach around to paint . .
~ ~ I brought the lazy susan out and put the lamp on it . . it worked great!
Have a wonderful summer day!!
