Off the Rack

Heavens.  At the very least you think I could do a frame.

Wow. All I can think of is how would you dust that mantel?

Mrs. Blandings said...

Kathy - good point. I hadn't thought of that. Might be best done with a hair dryer!

too funny . . . I used two huge shell framed mirrors on a project on the east coast . . . and, yes, it's best to dust them with a blow dryer (set on 'cool,' because 'hot' can weaken the glue). lol.

funny, i just did a post on a lady in austin with a 'shell crazy' house,
some of it was fabulous.

in palm beach , there will always be a demand for 'shell encrusted items.'
chandeliers, huge mirrors, furniture, yadda yadda....

* I just love this (won't work here in our desert home, but I'd just LOVE to "have" to buy a house for it! Hmmm...)~~~ Anyhoooo, who has time to "worry" about how to "clean" it??? I mean, doesn't that just HAPPEN "all by ITSELF"??? Linda *

I think the book is called "Glue Gun Decor" about a former model now decorator of her home with her beloved glue gun. Shells everywhere! When one falls off, she just plops it back on...with more glue gun. I love the verve. As for dusting, perhaps its just patina.
