Vintage Silver Display
A bunch of junk put together to create a pretty vignette in our cabin bathroom.   Candle from GW (Goodwil), silver from a junking trip, mermaid .75 at a Flea Market, shells free for the picking. 
Recognize this Sue?  This was another Junk Market purchase from about 3 years ago.  Loved it!  With its chippy cream paint it was screaming for me to buy it for the cabin above the toilet.  It holds oh so many treasures.  
Love the vintage silver.  Not sure what the original purpose of this dish was, but for $5 at a Flea Market it found a new use for holding q-tips at the cabin.
This has a funny story.  Obviously, its a vintage silver frame with an S for Schaumann, but my dear sil asked what the S stood for?  Unfortunately, its in the bathroom.  Get her mindset?
Fun to use empty frames like this to hi-lite some article you like.

These are some Junk ideas I've been using in our cabin, which obviously is a beachy theme.

Sue-my SIL is a hoot. I would never of thought of that, but she came out after using the bathroom that 1st time and made a crack about it. I've kept it in there, but should maybe reconsider. Ha!
Did you notice there are 2 mermaids guys? I used one in the shelf display and one on the silver tray display. They were $1.50 for the 2 of them. It was an awesome find and are so old and with the perfect muted colors of vintage finds. Posted: 5:32 pm on September 9th

Oh my gosh! I do remember that piece from JM. You did a great job with it! Love the mermaid. But best of all I share you SILs sense of humor. The "S" cracks me up! Thanks so much for your posts. You're giving me inspiration and energy.

Take care,

I'm not by a beach (but would love to be), and have quite a collection that I use for the late spring/summer (shells from Florida, vintage beach oil paintings, driftwood, child-size adirondacks, etc., etc.) - and am thinking of not taking any of it down till I have to (Christmas...) - it's just so relaxing - which I'm sure your cabin must be.

I have some little mermaids too - so cute!!
