Shells and more, decor...

More on my short season of shell decor here in the Living Room. I found this wonderful urn at Pottery Barn a couple of years ago, in St. Louis, and since then it's been sitting on my coffee table holding whatever is seasonal. It's one of my favorite decorating pieces. 

I've picked up these great conch shells at the fleas for just a few dollars,
so they are piled in here, at least for the next few weeks.

Here's the rest of the mantle. I found these wonderful starfish at The White Rabbit in St. Louis. What a great shop, wish I'd taken photos, but Anne and I were headed back to Springfield and it was a quick visit. Such a great store, if you're in the area be sure and stop by. It's packed with great vintage, shabby, chippy, white goodness!

If you didn't see yesterday's post on making some faux soldered bottles,
then scroll down to the next post.

Also, a fixture on the mantle are my super duper love'em so much
Wolff Pottery vases. A huge bargain from Restoration Hardware
a while back. 
About 10 dollars each.
...but I did have to paint them white.

(Did I tell you how much I love them?)

More Living Room; no shells, 
but how about some repro Staffordshire dogs instead?

nothing says "Summer" like repro dog figurines.
(just kidding)

and my white desk in the corner...

This however, does say summer...
my vintage botanical specimen window.

Hard to believe, but I found a large college notebook from the 1940's
 filled with them for $11.
I know...
don't hate me cause I'm lucky.

oh, and another tapestry stool to feed my addiction.
Not cheap, but still a bargain at 40 dollars from Robin's Vintage Suitcase.
(Her new tearoom opens next week...yay!)

OK, you know me...
I'm itching for Fall...
I LIVE for September 1!!
Until then, I'll just have to play with my shells.

While hunting for photos I just realized it's been a year this week
since I started my Living Room transformation by painting over 20 pieces
of furniture white...yikes.

I'll be joining these gal pals for parties this week:

Susan for Met Monday
Hope you're having a wonderful week!
