Treasures from my Travels

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share what I bought from St. Simons Island and Savannah.  I found a huge dough bowl in St. Simons Island and a French fruit crate in Savannah.  I used them both in my dining room.  Fitting huh?  

I placed the dough bowl in the center of my table. This bowl is huge!  It's almost 41" long.  


I placed the fruit crate on my side board.


I filled the crate with some fern greenery.


I decided to add some dried lavender bundles to my dough bowl for now.  



I'm sure I will find lots of things I can fill in these items.  I'm loving rustic wood at the moment!  I've been gathering more and more of that for my home. I like how it plays off all of my white.




Later this week I'll finally share my master bathroom reveal.  The frameless shower enclosure has been installed and it is everything we could've ever hoped it would be.  It completely transformed the room and makes the shower feel even larger.

I hope you'll stop back by tomorrow for our weekly link up party, Share Your Style, too!

Thanks for stopping by!

That is such a nice sized dough bowl and the fruit crate goes perfectly in your dining room. I need to get my dough bowl back out again. They're fun to play around with and fill up with different things. Can't wait for your master bath reveal!!!

Love your new treasures Kelly! That dough bowl is beautiful. I imagine it will be a travelling dough bowl... finding it's way throughout your home. I love the crate too. I'm a fan of anything that gathers! And wood tones do make your lighter colors pop! Looking forward to the master bath reveal!
