White Wednesday

Touches of the seashore all around my home....

Inspired by sweet Susan over at Evelyn and Rose, I used a piece of marble and some old candle holders to make a shelf on my Sunroom's sofa table....

 I found this beautiful metal memo board this past week-end at one of my favorite seaside shops....

 ...I think she's serenely gorgeous!

 And I tried my hand at embellishing some ugly old clipboards with vintage buttons...

(c'est "moi"...blogging!)

...I love the way they turned out!

 Happy White Wednesday mes amies! Can't wait to see all the white inspiration at Faded Charm Cottage!

  13. Oh, where to start...the candle holders/marble shelf is amazing! What an idea. Then, your clipboards are so, so sweet. But that memo board, that has your name all over it. If I had seen that, I would have grabbed it for you.

  15. SO many lovely things in this post Michelle that I hardly know where to start.
    I loved the sea nest the minute I saw it!
    The way you created the shelf is awesome. I love the candleholders you used to hold up the marble.
    I love ALL your seaside whites today my friend.

  16. Hi Michelle!
    I just love stopping by to see what you've been up to. All the sea inspired vingettes are so lovely. Thanks for sharing.


  17. Such beautiful whites, as always. I love the shelf idea and those clipboards are goregeous.

  18. Another beautiful tour as always. Your home is so refreshing!!

  19. I always love your pictures and projects! The buttons on the clip boards is a fabulous idea....I will thank you in advance for letting me "borrow" that idea (the supplies are already in my studio). The marble shelf is a great addition to the sofa table. I love how it helps layer the shelf. Beautiful!

  20. Hi Michelle!
    What a cute idea for the old clipboards!
    I know I can always count on you to wow me on Wednesdays...well everyday really!

  21. Catching up with you! Your last post was dreamy! And this one so beautifully energizing and inspiring. There is always something here that makes my heart leap.

  22. What beautiful things! New to your blog and I see many hours enjoying it ahead. May I ask where you got the sofa table? I love the idea of adding a shelf above it too.

    The clipboards are wonderful...I am a teacher and I can see me adapting the idea to brighten the kids' clipboards in my classroom!

I am following an Etsy shop that has some items you might like...I don't intend to plug a store here (it's not mine), but I will give you the info if you would like. I just bought a Fleur de Lis picture which I adore.
