Prints, Dishes & Shells


I didn't finish my cloche vignette before my trip, but I got lots of inspiration for it while I was gone. I love a mix of elements from nature, and visiting VIGNETTES at Ocean Beach made me want to see lots of white and shells.




I do that dance between wanting a spare look and then wanting lots to look at. I don't suppose you really have to choose between the two. One time it's one thing, and then it can be another.














Weeds and botanical prints, dishes and shells. It all makes for a lively mix of texture and shape with a little gleam mixed in.




I've been wanting to pair this milkglass compote with a glass cloche for some time now. So many vignettes. . . . So little time. . . .



































































And here we are turning another corner on summer!
I'm wishing a very fond farewell to July. . . .

Thanks so much for all your wonderful comments and visits!
 I still have quite a few left to return --
I'm off to see what you all have been up to!

Have a fabulous week ahead!

I really like milk glass but don't have any. I daren't start another collection as I am limited for any more space. Your compote looks so good with the glass domes and I love the little transferware butter dish. Nic pics as always. x

Oh how I love that transferware butter dish with the cow on top...adorable!

Sarah said...

Beautiful, beautiful! Love getting to see my all time favorite butter dish!
Enjoyed the post on Hotel del Coronado. It's a beautiful place. We attended a wedding on the beach there a few years ago.

Your milk glass stand is absolutely exquisite,drool,drool. I want to get a cloche but everyone I find is way too expensive for this old gals pocketbook. Sigh! Your things are so gorgeous. I got some wonderful ideas for displaying some of goodies. Thanks
Hearing you talk about Ocean Beach makes me homesick for S.D. Lived there for 21 years and sure do miss it in the summertime. I was a beach nut,love the water. Used to hang out at Pacific Beach with oldest dauhgter and her friends,worked at shop on the boardwalk couple summers. People thought we lived down there but we lived in east county in Santee.

Hi J,
You have brought the beach home and kept it under glass, very nice!! The bird looks just like your sea bird, from your pic I love! The tiny tiny shells, darling!! The milkglass compote with the cloche top, the edging of the milkglass mimics coral... or so I thought! :-)
Glad your back:-)
Hugs,
Bella

Love the colours here. The brown & white transfer-ware is my favorite of all. You certainly know how to put a photo together to capture the eye.

So pretty! I love milk glass too. Especially vases of all sizes displayed together. I also like that they are made to last and do not break easily like the vases & glass of today. Have a lovely day~ Ivy Jane

It's funny I have had one etched cloche up in Mom's attic forever that I found off Dad's truck.. I was always scared to bring it home..I finally brought it home two years ago. I love it it has a metal piece on top and the glass is etched..I love your brown transfer ware its just beautiful...Just lovely as always. Have a great day with love Janice

Beautiful again. I tried to find you on Pinterest but didn't see you. I have a board on there called "under glass". Would you mind if I pin some of your pictures? Your blog name would be showing. If you prefer not, that's o.k.

These images need no words...the variety of textures, the repeated white, the divided spaces...it all comes together like a song.
