I have been arranging and re-arranging ever since my shelves arrived. They aren't stuffed, in fact a few are even empty, but I have arrived at a point where I feel ready to share it with the world. I think it is going to be something I can continue to play with. I am very much enjoying having my treasures out on display!
First, the full view.
Now, I will highlight a couple of my favorite arrangements and combination:
Stones from the Upper Peninsula (displayed underwater for the most brilliant colors) with an antique chocolates tin adorned with butterflies. I love how the colors are similar on these two.
Textured milk glass with textured coral.
Round shapes: stopper, bottle, antique jar, and bird's nest. I would love to add to my nest collection. I think they're so impressively constructed, woven from practically nothing. How does a bird even get started?
More round shapes: driftwood and basket; seashell matches in color.
