Slowly, I am returning our house to "normal" after the holidays. Between visitors, visiting, various winter illnesses making their rounds thru our house, SNOW and more SNOW, it's taking me way longer that I had hoped to get our house back together. Anyway, after all the clutter, sparkle and whimsy of the holiday decor, I am in the mood for a calming, less cluttered look.
I coupled vintage silver and glass to go over my mantle. The large mirrored window sash above is unadorned right now, keeping with my simple theme.
The shells are ones we collected here at the Jersey shore or purchased in local boutiques because they were irrisistable (like the pink one holding up the starfish). I love the tarnished silver vase. A thrift store goodie that I couldn't sell. LOL
Before Christmas Kohl's was having a huge sale and this gorgeous mercury glass candle holder was only 4.00. It came home with me. The little Mercury glass tea light holder was part of a little package of gifts my daughters gave me for Christmas.
Another thrift store find. I had white Christmas balls in here for the holiday. Now it holds a glittered stafish and clam shell.
Now, I will move on to decorating the top of our entertainment center. Hopefully, it will be ready to share next White Wednesday!
