Summer Under Glass

Playing with my Living Room decor has become so much easier
and more inspired since the paintbrush came out last week.

Decorating with a white palette has been what I've been striving for
and now I feel like I have so many more options.

What can be more "summer" than seashells?
I have a conch shell that was given to me by my mom
that she and my daddy had their entire married life.
Believe it or not, it was a doorstop for the front door.

I'm not an expert, but it seems quite large to me as conch shells go.

I added another smaller one,
and a nautilus shell to some old books
for a summertime cloche vignette.

I'm painting my sofa table and some picture frames today
so these were taken amid the mess.

I also finished my frenchy toile sofa pillows,
you can see one in the background.

They weren't an easy job,
as I'm no professional seamstress,
but they look pretty good from a distance!

I found my husband standing in the middle of the Living Room last night,
"It's really growing on me", he said.
"In fact, I really like it."
Now there's a man with a "chippy" gene.

I'm joining Marty for her Summer Cloche Party
and the rest of these fun parties.
