Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday! This week I decided to show what I have on my coffee table right now.  I try to change it out often but I really like this display so it may be here longer than usual.  
Vanilla scented candles, shells and roses...
Also on the table are two more of my favorite things, my large silver flea market-find tray and my beautiful apothecary jar that was a gift from my friends at Vintage & Vogue. 
I also have shells, candles and roses on my dining room table...


I'm loving the beachy romantic look!

The apothecary is one of the loveliest I've ever seen. How fortunate to have received it as a gift.

Both your coffee table and dining room table ase so beachy and romatinc, but the roses steal the show! They are amazing. They look like paper. And the apothacary jar is amazing.

Just lovely as always.

Your displays are beautiful! I love that apothecary jar! It has so much detail on it. It all just makes me swoon!

Rosie@Journey to Charm said...

Very pretty. Thank you for hosting.

Nancy said...

Cindy, I was never a big shell fan until I started following your gorgeous blog. Now I find myself thinking about decorating with them all the time. My husband and I went to a huge estate sale in our neighborhood and they had tons of seashells. I am going to go back tomorrow as I think they are marking everything down then. I have no idea what prices should be...they had some pretty ones.

I just love seeing the displays you create with them...I can see why you may leave it longer than usual!

Katy Noelle said...

So pretty! Sorry to be so obvious.=] I love the pretty blue table runner under everything - that's such a lovely and romantic of the ocean. Blue and white~sigh! Thank you for hosting this fun event!

Love, Katy Noelle

Katy Noelle said...

Oh, btw, I was at our local discount store today and saw the most beautiful candelabra that looked like a chandelier. I've always wanted a chandelier but never knew where to put one (it wouldn't quite fit with Vermont farmhouse style) ~ this might just be the perfect answer. It's Austrian crystal, though and, although, discounted, still costs what is a "pretty penny" for me. Do me a favor and cross your fingers for me!=] If I don't get it, I'll just have to live vicariously through you ~ your candle holders are beautiful and whimsical. Happy sigh!

Red Door Home said...

So perfect - white, silver, shells , flowers!
