Summer on the Coffee Table

Continuing around the living room, I added some Summer to the coffee table. I started the vignette with this new blue and white vase that I found at Home Goods the other day. For a long time they haven't carried any blue and white but now they are stocking it again and I couldn't be happier! I can't seem to resist it! I also saw a very large bowl that I almost bought, but resisted. I love the design on this new jar!
 I have had this shell pillar holder for several years. I added some blue sea glass and an LED candle. I turned it on for you but it is hard to see.

 I added some other shells to the tray and beside the tray.

 I have a large collection of shells, I have been collecting them for over 30 years. Always have wished we lived near water somewhere but that is not to be:)

 I added some star fish to the orchid.
 I looked at some beautiful ivy plants today but am waiting til after vacation to get some more.
 I LOVE the combination of the blue and whites and the rust colors.
 The coral embroidered pillows are on the sofa.

 I moved this jar over to on the elephant and added a small starfish. Things keep moving around, as Shirley would say, the "décor shuffle":):) Except that she does the "furniture shuffle":):)

 I am looking for a summery tablecloth for the table in the corner to lighten it up for summer.
 I added some rusty flowers to the handled pot. They are not as orange as they are showing here.

 Thanks for your visit. I hope you are all having a wonderful summer!!!
