Well, I have to admit, I know I have a problem. Is there a group for overbuyers anonamous? I cannot STAND it. Everyday, I go to work (my mom owns an interiors store) unload tons of boxes with the best stuff for a gals house you have ever seen. It makes me crazy. I could open my OWN store with all the stuff I have. Here is the latest thing. I lost my breath when I opened this. I remember it at market, BUT - I dont remember it like this! Lucky for you, I bought two, if you want one let me know. Ill send it out.
I adore buttons, shells, old crackly paint and wood just to name a few elements. This is exactly me. All of my loves combined.It really REALLY looks like an old piece to me. The scalloped edges, right amount of wood showing through and a great crackle. Sometimes they dont get the crackle right. (I am a crackle snob, scary)
Okay, am I obsessing on this thing? My mom threw it in the Birthday pile of presents because she knew I couldnt afford to buy another thing right now,with the cottage renovation gobbling up the money like crazy. She spoils her girl so much. Love ya mom!!
The photos dont do it justice. The shells have some great blue green, brown and cream going on. What do you think? Anyone think its something to obsess on?
Have a great day. Im going to work, I promise I am not going to bring home a thing tonight. i hope..:)
