SNEAK PEEKS AROUND THE HOUSE

I'm often accused of having too much stuff.  My response is always guilty as charged.  Sometimes I'm inspired to take advantage of my collected objects.  I just walk around the house and snap sneak peeks of my treasures.  Hope you like my spur of-the-moment post. 

I have no explanation for having a fencing foil on top of my bookcase.

This is a sneak peek of some shells in a shell.

I always love my Santos.  This one is on the mantel in my sun room.  You can see some of the room reflected in the Greek Key mirror.

My family has switched to cloth napkins.  We love using these bee napkin rings with them.

Sometimes  my husband adds some of his stuff to my decor.  This is the top of a bookshelf with one of his vintage car trophies used as a bookend.

I thought that my leopard flatware was too pretty to hide in a drawer.  I jammed it into a large vintage apothecary jar, then layered it in front of a stenciled bread board in my kitchen.

My new file box is a magazine container.  It's the perfect size for my folders.

This art is waiting for a spot.  It's been lounging on the chaise for a while.  I may just leave it there.

ART WAITING FOR A PERMANENT HOME


I have many vintage wooden bowls.  This one is chestnut.  The copper repair makes me like it even more.  Where else would I put some lemons and a vintage oil?

This is one corner of the shelf in my dining room.
