Beach Cottage Decor now at Stars

I rearranged my wall space at Stars and put out all the beach cottage decor.

P1360399I brought in my shabby white crates to create shelves for the booth.

A couple of shabby blue nightstands tucked in there, and a white wall shelf.

A sweet vintage shabby white child’s chair and a little three legged foot stool.

Shell topped jars, shell filled jars and shell candle jars.  A little round table with a shabby white trug on top.

Distressed turquoise frames with ‘floating’ white fingerling starfish.  Some BIG sugar starfish, painted white and glittered.

A shabby vintage spice rack filled with little jars of shells and sea glass.  Some small mermaid crowns and a sugar starfish mounted atop a shabby white candle holder.


I did some rearranging and stocking of my big booth too.

Lots of stacks of old books, as always.

This giant turquoise cubby shelf is filled with vintage milk glass and Ironstone pieces.

Some additional, and smaller, cubby shelves.

LOVE this vintage chicken tureen!


I’ve added lots of this style of vintage Ironstone with the scalloped edges.

Beautiful hand painted vintage milk glass vase with gold accents and ruffled edge.  Gold glitter Eiffel Tower tags.  Little vintage vanity jars.  Old bottles and upcycled bottles with repro labels.

Vintage metal chair with new gold paint and pretty soft blue and gold Toile covered seat.


Come on by and check it all out.  The construction on the next block continues; BUT, they have not been blocking off the side street parking as much lately.






Look what I found!

P1170451Some BABY reindeer to go with the big ones I already have!  I packed away the bigger ones already, so I can’t show you the size difference, but these are about half the size!  Now I’ll have a whole HERD of deer for next Christmas.

P1170458Doesn’t this look like “Trumper” from Bambi???  It’s a small figurine.

P1170459Found this frame already painted red.  Love this particular shape!  Thinking I might make a small “love” banner to hang across it.

P1170467This little stool has the UGLIEST red/gold/purple spray paint job I think I’ve ever seen!  Nothing that I can’t easily paint over though!  Little stools always sell well and are great to use to prop things up in your displays.

Classic three-legged milking stool.  Will leave this one ‘as found’.


This is the first pair of these shadow boxes that I’ve gotten with the scalloped edge.  Normally I go for the plain  ones, and I really ONLY buy them to use for adding height to my booth displays.  But they sell well too!  Just had to touch the paint up a tad on these, so I left them white.


Seriously?!?!  Another country heart cut out shelf?!?!  They are just always so darn CHEAP that I can’t pass them up.  Plan to remove the top on this one.  (last one I covered the heart with a carved wood applique.)

P1170526Found this fabulously grubby chair at STARS!  Love this ‘ice cream chair’ style backing AND that this one has a solid seat as opposed to the typical cane seat.  Nothing against cane seats, except that OLD ones are always torn up!  I might have to keep this one for myself!

P1170530LOVE this crusty rusty big ole tool box!!  My first very own tool box was a small red one.  I can’t even remember when or how I got rid of it?  Probably passed it along to my son when he first moved out.  This one is definitely a KEEPER!
