decorating update.

Over the last few weeks I've been adding a few decor things to the house. I thought this would be a good time to update them here on my blog. First up I finally decluttered the downstairs bookshelf... remember it here? That was November. It just took longer for me to find the perfect things.Two of my favorite pieces are here. One is the large jack on top of the books. It's from Home Goods. The second is the wire basket. It's hard to see in this picture but I found it at a local antique store for $7.

I have a few things together on my kitchen window. They seem to change depending on my mood. I also finally got some things for my downstairs mantel. If you aren't keeping up with the process, here are the posts since we've moved in:

What do you think? I wish you could see the two cute starfish on the books, but they kind of blend in the photo. Right below them I have this large lantern with shells in the bottom.
Lastly I finally filled this blue vase from Pottery Barn with shells as well. I guess that golf ball in our change container does not go so well. Chase and I will be done with our breakfast area really soon. We have everything except an electrician. Thankfully my dad can help out, but as he is working full time and going to school he's a little busy. As soon as that's done I'll post more pictures.
