Chugging along

Hey, there, how's Wednesday treating you so far? I'm been working off and on at the War on Grime and gradually working on changing the seasonal decor, a little bit at a time. 
Here's where the silver and succulents wound up, in the little brief case on a bookshelf in the library. There is a partial sand dollar near it, and a couple of white orbs, one studded with tiny seashells.
Here, a couple of things added to the peg rack by the door.
So far my hunt for a vintage child's pail has been in vain, but this new one from a thrift shop can serve as a stand in till my lucky day arrives.

Here's the dining room table now. I got that very tall apothecary jar--see how the lid is sticking out of the top of the cloche?--at a yard sale last weekend. The jar, filled with fake succulents was a dollar. What a deal!
Finally, a big scallop dish on the coffee table, with some ocean-themed votive candles on it. Sorry about the non-coordinating candy nearby. Mr. B likes this brand that are all orange, yellow and brown, totally autumnal. Why he can't switch to salt-water taffy or something more summer appropriate this time of the year I can't understand! A little cooperation in decorating would be most appreciated. 
That's all I've got today. Have a good one.
