I recently changed things around on our sideboard in the dining room. It was time for some summer-fication - in other words adding some shells and driftwood.
I asked my youngest son if he had any shells I could use and this is what he came up with. I had no idea he had so many, given that we live a looooong way from the ocean.
I collected these pieces of driftwood from the cottage on Georgian Bay and the long twisty stick from Yellowstone Park (oops, please don't report me for taking something from a National Park).
I added two suncatchers that we bought years ago in Nova Scotia.
Plus you can see the light green antique jar I got at the Christie Antique Show in the front.
Don't sand dollars just put you in the mood for going to the beach. Which may or may not be a good idea, given that I won't be going to a beach any time soon.
And here's one more shot of the roses, covered in raindrops,
And one more shot, with the sun streaming in, making the glass sparkle.
