Summer Updates

In honor of the start of Summer and the 4th of July, here are some fun seasonal updates.....
I bought these fantastic vintage flags, but I have been so busy, I haven't done anything with them....sad!

Simply adding some coral and a beautiful shell makes my white, pink, and teal color scheme scream simple summer elegance.

Again, something as simple as a few shells changes up the whole look.

And of course, the giant clam shell makes an appearance! I love mine, and wish I had another.
If you can find one, get it--it is one of the most versatile decorative items I have.

The hydragengas scream SUMMER, but you already know I love them. I did want to show off this:

This is my new antique hand carved wood and gilded tole Italian sconce. I got this at a yard sale a few weeks ago for a whopping $0.50 cents!

I moved Napoleon to a new spot for the summer. I hope he enjoys looking over the hallway.

A little more rearranging! I am turning my dining room in to a white on white color scheme with a few hints of pink, green, and teal! It is starting to come together nicely. I can't wait to get my new custom dining table hand crafted from salvaged wood! I have about another week to go.

This mirrored window was a simple project--I thumb-tacked, yes thumb-tacked mirror finished POSTER-BOARD from the Michaels to the back of an antique window frame--super fast and easy! The funny part is that the poster-board was the costliest part of the whole project. Eventually, I'll have real mirror cut to fit.

This bust was a gift from a very generous, but grouchy shop owner near where I used to work. I have gotten some really wonderful things from him. He is in his 80's and has owned the shop since he was in his 20's! I got the veil at a yard sale last summer--it was the woman's grandmother's veil from her first marriage in the 1950's. 

I love this millinery flower hat. I don't remember where I got it, either.....I got the lovely basket from my friend Brenda. I hope you have enjoyed this little peek in my home. Dining room reveal coming soon! Comments are always welcomed.
