Welcome to my kitchen table Summer vignette!
It is a collection of shells, things made of wire
and wood and sea glass colored items.
Usually I have a new tutorial involved with some item
that is in my vignettes but the only things that I made in
this vignette are the glass fishing floats from two years ago
(based on a tutorial by Kim at Sand and Sisal blog and used
in my Summer of '12 Mantel ) and the sea fans that I made
last year (the tutorial is Make Your Own Sea Fans).
Everything else was purchased. I bought the wired bottle
from Hobby Lobby this year to try to teach myself how to
apply a wire netting on a bottle...love that look.
The bottle with wire netting has a sea shell ball on top of
it. It (and other shell balls in this vignette) were purchased
from Michael's last year.
Some of the other shell balls are sitting in a wooden
bread bowl that I bought from Sherry of No Minimalist Here.
Other shell balls are on the tiered wire stand that I treated
myself to (from World Market) this past spring.
The morning sun looks pretty shining through this thrift
store bottle and the fishing floats in the vignette.
All of the shells were purchased from Hobby Lobby,
Jo Ann's or Michael's in bags or baskets over the
past three years. I only live three hours from the
Gulf Coast but we don't get pretty shells like these there.
Another wooden item (along with the bowl) is a reticulated
hand that I purchased from Antique Farm House.
It is a fun item to use to hold seasonal things in vignettes.
enjoying it and I hope you have too!
