A Summer Coastal Vignette…Adding More Driftwood Decor

This past Saturday, I had the pleasure of participating in the North Carolina Hometalk Bloggers Meetup.

It was a great event of shopping, dining, and spending time with fellow bloggers. (A post on this event coming soon)

While shopping, I came across a great piece of driftwood decor…and it had to come home with me!

Changed out the coffee table vignette to a Coastal Summer look.

I felt that this driftwood basket would go great with the driftwood piece on the fireplace hearth.

Here it is in the beautiful shop that I purchased it from…(Summerhouse, Greensboro, NC)

…..I think that is Tom Hanks in the picture…he approves of the basket too!

I filled the basket with antique glass fishing net floats…

…..My mom brought them back for me from her trip to Alaska…

……….they were carefully packed in her carry on luggage. 🙂

My mom said that they were Japanese…and very old.

Just love the texture of driftwood…

Hoping the piece of driftwood my hubby found (actually almost tripped over) will age to this patina.

I gathered some coastal items that I had in my bathroom that I purchased from Pottery Barn.

Thought that these would be a great compliment to the driftwood basket.

Added this container of succulents for a natural texture…bought these beauties at Trader Joe’s.

I love Coastal Living Magazine…this is the January/February 2005 issue….

…..I kept this issue to show to my builder…

……….as I loved the “pineapple motif” cut into the railing on that porch.

He said, “yep, I can do that, but it’s gonna cost ya”!!

Needless to say, I did not get that railing….maybe someday.

Did you notice that gorgeous weathered chest?!!

This porch is part of a gorgeous home in Key West..on the water.

So that’s my Summer Coastal Vignette…hope you enjoyed it!

Have a beautiful day!!

A Mini Master Bath Makeover with {Pottery Barn}

My hubby had a softball tournaament in Myrtle Beach this weekend…

It was windy, rainy and cold.

So three of us “softball wives” dashed to the mall and of course to our favorite store, Pottery Barn.

Where we have our own “reserved” register…

They see Merry and I come through the door and just smile and make sure one of the registers is ready for merchandise!

Seriously!!

I purchased those great new coral and sea inspired items from their new collection.

This is the before…I wanted to give the table a lighter feel.

DSC_8755

I am working on this bathroom…giving it a bit of a mini facelift..

…..still have a few more things to do.

DSC_8763

The jeweled jar with the coral top, the mercury glass bottle with the starfish topper…

…..and the mercury glass “urchin like” candle are Pottery Barn.

DSC_8778

The blue finial was a Hobby Lobby purchase a couple of years ago.

DSC_8780

I love the “jewels” on the bottle of the coral.

The silver bowl of shells and the hurricane were elsewhere in the house…and they moved here..

Another new item…

New rugs in front of the vanity…also from Pottery Barn.

DSC_8772

I also found this beauty and it found it’s way to the register.

Felt like it would go well with the PB Lewis Paisley…

DSC_8771

Love it!!

So we are finally home after being gone for 6 days and trying to catch up….

…..while enjoying the company of my granddaughter as she is on Spring Break.

Have a wonderful day!!!
