The shell stoup

Antique stoup in glazed earthenware
A little visit with companions and the discovery, in a window, of an antique stoup in the shape of a stylized shell. Done in glazed earthenware, it is decorated with a fabric flower held by a ribbon.
Liven it up with some flowers and place nearby an antique broach in the shape of a rose with a missing heart, which now receives a candle.

Let’s say that perhaps a collection is about to be born !

I don't exactly recognize the object you feature as a stoop but it is lovely. The stoop I know is to either bend from the waist or it is a small porch. What is this object used for?

How beautiful! I love shells and I especially love how you used them for decor in these pics. I featured a picture from your mannequin on my blog and cited your blog site. I hope you don't mind and thanks for the inspiration!
