She was a dirty, dusty mess!
But, she was so unique! The gold velvet interior HAD to go. The first time I saw her, I knew that she was meant to display shells and other beach treasures. I'm a coastal girl at heart. It's where I long to be and I make my way to there every chance I get!
Here she is now.
Can't you smell the salt air and pluff mud? Yes, I'm weird. I actually love the smell of pluff mud (or as most South Carolinians call it, "fluff" mud. We truly do butcher the English language but I love being a Carolina girl). For anyone who may not be familiar with pluff mud, it is the black gooey mud found in inlets and salt water marshes and it has a potent aroma that many find offensive. Not me! At the first sight of the inlets, as we are driving South, I roll down my window and take in a deep breath! Ahhhhh.... my heart is back home where it belongs.
I really need a better camera and some photography lessons. Paging Sarah! Hint, hint. Are you out there? My BFF takes AMAZING pictures. Me, not so much.
I think she might make a nice addition to my blue & white coastal inspired Christmas theme. My wheels are spinning! I can see twinkling lights, blue and white ornaments and, of course, shells inside that shadow box.
I need to stop flapping my gums about Christmas and get started on my next project. Two OLD rocking chairs for a customer! Yay!!!!
