More....By The Sea Inspirations


The vignette in on the other side of the dining room across from the door server.
Staying with that sea side theme, this is what evolved!
That is a tea cup sponge on the statues head.



I love this set of books,
I couldn't bare to part with them!


This huge shell is one of my favorites!
I scored it at the Nashville flea market for $20! 



It all comes together on this marble top table from France.


This is the table beside the couch in the living room.
I needed something for height, so I put the statue inside the large sponge!
Add a little coral, a sea fan, and shell to complete the look.




This cabinet has had many vignettes over the years.
I think this is my favorite so far.



This photo of the cabinet with closed doors it not very good,
the window reflections kept showing up.
This cabinet is handmade.
I love handmade furniture.
I always day dream about who made it,
and who they made it for!



Hope you enjoyed another sea side tour of the Double Wide!
Yes, as in DOUBLE WIDE MOBLE HOME!

Tot, I can't begin to tell you how much I love your coastal design. Every single thing is gorgeous! I got a giant clamshell from my dad for Christmas but it weighed so much I couldn't bring it home on this trip. I hope you have a wonderful holiday.
Hugs,
