It is summer! Time to "merchandise" the house in a cool, simple way with some measure of pizazz.
The blue and white collection needs an infusion LOL! ... so I am hitting the estate sales tomorrow. You never know!
I have been looking and looking and looking for the rest of my seashells. When we did the big bedroom flip-flop right before Christmas, I organized myself into oblivion. I can't find a blasted thing in my attics!
I found a few shells in an unlikely place (in a magazine rack I stashed) -- but that big trunk where I put most of them eludes me, laughing.
The hydrangeas are faux -- from Pottery Barn long ago.
Most of the shells in the bowl I picked up on the beach in the last few years.
That big starfish is a PB creation -- faux.
The poppies are fake, too. Sorry about all the artifice. Reminds of what a girl in Colorado once challenged me with when I lived there back in the day: "I don't wear makeup because I think it looks fake." I replied, "If it looks good, who cares?" (She looked washed out and plain. I think she was jealous...)
The canes are very old. The taller one belonged to one of my Walker County ancestors who came to what was to be Alabama in 1793.
