Bye, bye, birdies!

Hello, all, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We enjoyed going to an art exhibit where a friend had work on display, then discovered a new restaurant that evening, so plenty of excitement for these geezers. 

During the day the main chore was taking all the bird decor down and getting out the seashells and beach-related things for the next couple of months. Here's the bookcase:
In my little briefcase is a blue and yellow ball, a straw-wrapped bottle, a candle wound with twine and shells and a picture of brightly colored buoys. The  frame is from Kirkland's, but came to me via a thrift shop. I added a tin pitcher full of pinwheels just for fun.

So far the coffee table is pretty simple, based on the tray we'd had out before. 
What looks like a book is actually a box of shell note cards. On top a cloche filled with more shells.

Outside by the front door, like last year is this:
a string of shells.

To be continued. More tomorrow.

I need to do this now that June is here. The seashells just don't look right in this old house except in the summer so I put them away each September. You've given me some ideas of how to use them other than just propped up on the mantel.

Love the way the shells look in the cloche! Wish I had enough to do that here. I'm trying to think of a way to display about a dozen sand dollars.
