My living room and I have been “beach dreaming” . So we (my imaginary housekeeper) gathered up some collected shells...
Put them in a large Silver Shell
Added a bargain Silver tray ($1.99), unpolished. Layered on top is a vintage crochet piece.
Blue books were used to contrast with the whiteness of the coral, collected long ago.
Isn’t it delicate?
A coconut picked up by the sweetest little boy many years ago brings back sweet memories. When plucked from under the palm it was green. Gradually it turned brown and was treated to a coat of poly.
More collected shells went into a large apothecary jar
Starfish in another
There are usually a couple of Art books laying around as well as a stack of magazines add to the mix.
Clean, (but maybe a bit of shell overload), it satisfies the desire for the “beach” for a little while, or at least a few minutes.
Until next time, Honey
