White Wednesday Shells

I wanted to show you just a few items for White Wednesday over at Faded Charm .  I could have shown you pictures of the snow since it is still here and looks like more is headed this way. Instead I will show you things in my home that make me happy!



Shell vase...and no I did not sit there and glue all these tiny shells to the vase.  It is actually paper mache covered with real shells


Here is the vase with my painted branches and a photo of my dad at 17 years old. You can tell by the bright paint color that this is in my home office and you can see the transformation here.


Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous paint color, and I adore the picture of your Dad. So special! (I'm just laughing at myself that it's White Wednesday, and I commented on two non-white things, sorry!) :)

Sherry,
Your white beachy items put a smile on my face on this snow day! Love that shade of green you used in your office.

I am coveting your bell jars on the white pedestal cake plates. It seems like it has been gray here for six weeks and your lighter decor is a boost. Blessings.

That photo of your dad made me smile. It made me think of a great portrait like that of my hubby's grandfather, only his pic has a oval portrait of his sweetheart at the time (my hubby's grandmother) in the bottom corner.

I must go and frame it!
