You may or may not remember my visiting Kirklands
with my sister last fall and purchasing these shelves.
I never gave much thought to what to put on them.
A neighbor and I went to Hobby Lobby last week
where I found this irresistible whale.

I spied this cute little boat...
This whale belonged to my father..I think it is soap stone.
I should probably move it over..what's one more hole??

And a "Treasure chest"..


I just love the "made to look old" fake books.
(The red one is real)

It's always fun to have new things to dust.
Have a happy weekend..

That is really a cute collection of pieces there, Missy. I love the soapstone whale that belonged to your dad! Yeah--what is one more hole? lol You started with a cute shelf and added to its cuteness.

I am in the process of packing up my 'dustables'--lol xo Diana

I love both those whales and the whole nautical theme! Yes, that looks like soapstone to me too.

That looks really nice! Always fun to have something new. I sure can get lost in Hobby Lobby, good thing the closes one is over an hour away.

Such an adorable shelf! I saw a whale like that in our Hobby Lobby store. It looks way better on your shelf than hanging on their wall. You found a perfect spot for it as it goes with your wonderful ship keepsake from your dad. What a treasure!

Have a great weekend Missy!

Hello Missy!:) I do hope this comment goes through, as I have commented on many of your posts, but none were accepted. Anyway, here goes,.... You have a lovely collection of nautical objects on your fireplace,...loving this nautical theme, They look as if they have always belonged together. I also like the old look on books.

You have a knack for grouping things together. I love this, especially the whale. Hope you have a nice weekend.

Fun to change things up, espcially
when you have a theme . . .
Something new to dust . . . no problem!
Looking great Missy . . .

Missy, I am loving your new treasures. They go so well together. So nice the whale was your father's. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
p.s. I laughed about the dusting.
