|Aerin Brass Sea Urchin Box|
So, my favorite food in the world is sea urchin and it's also one of my favorite objects. Since I am in Florida, I figure I can let my seashell freak flag fly. I understand there are ecological issues with over collecting of seashells. I am talking sea urchin decor, not the real thing. I found a photo of this stunning Aerin Lauder sea urchin box, and was lucky enough to track one down online - crazy hard to find BTW. It is on its way to me from my home town of Chicago - a great city but I don't miss the winters.
And I will explain the key to surviving Florida summers. I learned this in Bermuda. You play tennis, golf, garden, run errands, etc. early in the day before it gets awful out. Then spend the afternoon indoors in the a.c., then a dip in the pool and cocktails in the lanai around 5 or 6 o'clock. It' a tough life, I know.
The sea urchin box will go on my stunning Williams Sonoma Home Mercer table that I am ordering that I will be styling with blue and white Chinese porcelain and coffee table books and other beautiful objets like this. And guess what I tracked down as well?
Both of these gorgeous brass and acrylic palm tree sculptures from Williams Sonoma Home that were out of stock but I had to have them and I made it happen. I just picked them up - these beauties are going on my table for sure. They are so incredible I can't stop staring at them. Wow.
And the Amanda Lindroth book must be running low everywhere, because the $60.00 book is just discounted to $55.00 on Amazon. I just found it at HomeGoods for $29.99. Did you know the cover is actually wicker?
I might find a spot for her wicker Island tray I have as well on the table.
And I found a large wicker hurricane just like the Amanda Lindroth one at HomeGoods. For a fraction of the price.
And did I fail to mention that I just ordered this gorgeous navy blue velvet tufted sofa?
I have a feeling that even when it's safe to go out, I won't. I think I will just stay in my house with my puppies. Forever. Sounds like a plan.
