When I posted My Entry for Spring, she asked about my secretary that she'd seen in this photo.
I was embarassed to show it to anyone because it was a catch all of little, unrelated "treasures".
Well, then I had to do something. I couldn't show it the way it was, so I started shopping the house for anything that would work.
I found my box of sea shells and started playing.
I wrapped the dark, little books in white paper and tied them with twine.
An old piece of coral went on a round stand.
I filled a flower pot with several large shells.
Recognize the woven glass holders? I added those for texture and inserted a silver julep cup for a tiny bit of sparkle.
Two small transferware plates, a bird figure, starfish, sea biscuits, sand dollars and a lidded dish, and it was finished.
All were things I had, so the new look was "free".
My favorite little Staffordshire dog and Waterford clock are always on the desk.
I added a mother of pearl frame and a lamp for reading.
Hope you like the new look. Thanks for stopping by.
I'll be joining Marty@AStrollThruLife for Tabletop Tuesday.
and Kim@SavvySouthernStyle for Wow Us Wednesday.
See y'all there.
