Home Sweet Home #8

I have been looking for a display box for awhile.  I found this little gem at TJ Maxx.  I loved that it had a nautical  look about it.  I am changing the fabric in the future for a different look. 

But, right now I am really enjoying this beachy  look.  I have put some of my favorite shells and some postcards from Hawaii in it.  The postcards were from our honeymoon 20 years ago this year, so I guess that can qualify as vintage. 

Just looking at it helps me get in a summery mood.  
Thank you to everyone participating in Home Sweet Home!  I have enjoyed visiting you very much!
I will also join these sweet ladies at their homes, go and visit them.
