cavallini sealife and pottery barn

After some requests via etsy I framed the rest of the Cavallini sealife prints I made from a calendar. You might remember the post I did about it a few years back here. It took a while to measure and cut them to size. I used simple white wooden frames with a perspex front that look like glass. It makes them a lot safer for posting.

Excuse the not so great photography. We live in a south facing apartment where it's not easy to get a good indoor shot at this time of year. Nice and cool in summer though.

The mercury glass mason jar and candle holders were a purchase from the new Pottery Barn in Bondi Junction, which is on one of my regular shopping tracks close to where we live. I recognised the style from lots of American blogs I admire. 
It's great to have some exciting new stores in the area but I worry about the effect on small business. Let's all make sure we get behind them and help stop the world being taken over by large corporations.

I love the mix of silver, shells and candlelight with the French antique prints on our mantel.

The prints will be listed in my shop in the next few days if anyone is interested.

A few overdue thankyous to make..

  1. Beautiful vignette Cheryl. And yes PB is high street shopping on a new level but you are so right about supporting the small businesses too.
    Best Carolyn

  2. Looks like an amazing shop but so agree about small business. The prints look great x

  3. The shot with the books and seashells appeals to this avid reader!
    All the best,

  4. Very nice framings and great groupings too. Thanks for sharing

  5. They really turned out nice! I love the way you mix shells with other pretty things. I need to 'lighten up' some of my vignettes! Or build more shelves! lol Sweet hugs!

  6. Don't worry whilst I shop at Ikea and love Pottery Barn I still recycle, re-use and buy lots of things from Etsy and hand made markets. I want to support the average person trying to make a good living for their family. I love Etsy it has become one of my favorite places. Try MADE as well it's an all aussie hand made market. Not as good as Etsy but still good.

  7. I love what you've done with the prints and the vintage books. The mercury glass
    looks sincerely vintage. Your Pottery Barn shot (from the outside) is great.

  8. Gorgeous prints! Wow would love to visit PB oneday... but love small shops who make things w love more so too. xx

  9. the prints are beautiful cheryl I just leave sea grass...I agree with you on the big super stores everywhere and it's easy to get sucked in, I still would have something that not everybody else has in their home.
