Just Say No To Glitter!!!



Yep! Subtlety it all! Less is more!!




Blah, blah, blah!

At least this is what Bee is telling me
after a recent stay at the Ritz where she
saw in the gift shop...starfish...naked
starfish..




Well, naked except for one single "adornment"
in the middle.




I have to say, the idea did intrigueth me!




So, I gave it a whirl!
A "bob" from a vintage sweater...




An old ring...




A vintage button...
the possibilities are endless!




And I have to admit...I kinda like it.




And while all the frames above were merely
"props", wouldn't it be cool to truly frame them?
Backed with old lace...





Or vintage wallpaper?
The mind boggles!
I can never give up the glitter...but I just
might be able to find a place in my heart
for these starfish too!

  17. These white starfish are my all time favorites..., they're already quite elegant just the way they are..., and dressed up like this, I can't believe it! Just stellar.

  19. They are beautiful. I have been thinking about framing some shells and starfish, love the idea of the vintage wallpaper behind them. And some vintage bling would be pretty too, thank you for the ideas.
