Whites Around Here

After all the holiday decor is packed away for another year, I love the clean and simple way my house feels all around us.  I putter around putting things back where they were and/or moving them to new spots around our space.

Just a simple silver plate tray with a ton of patina that I love.  It sits on our coffee table and just holds whatever the treasure of the day might be.  It was filled with vintage ornies not too long ago and now these two white starfish will call it home.
A favorite place to decorate...our mantle.    This changes a lot too.  Right now all my silver, mercury glass and vintage apothecary jars filled with sea shells adorn it.  Beloved pics of those gone before always have a special place here no matter what surrounds them.  The vintage window that I snagged at a thrift store ALREADY painted white (be still my heart) is another favorite treasure of mine.  That has a permanent place there.  Sometimes, a wreath or garland might be added to it.
LOVE this frame...the pretty shells are all from the Atlantic here at the Jersey Shore.  Most collected by my babies thru the years.  We have them all over the house.

The middle of my cubby (I shared about that project a few posts back).  I'm still having fun dressing it.  Right now my favorite is the little flower frog holding a vintage Valentine postcard.  Love the startfish just hanging out there ;)

Have a great week friends!

I too love the clean feel after taking down the Christmas decor - it was fun putting that up - everything has its season! Love the patina to the tray! Gorgeous - You've inspired me to put out flower frogs with cards!
So sweet!
