C A R M E L M A G A Z I N E • S U M M E R / F A L L 2 0 1 4 107 So here's to picnics and tide pools and sand in your hair with pockets full of memories and seashells. It doesn't matter what sor t of house we have or where we live. Collecting and living with the cool aesthetic of vintage coastal pieces allows us to return to the sea, time and time again. The seaside mind, freed of noise and com- plication, finds beauty in the faded, weathered and rusted fragments of these salty remnants of the past. Marjorie Snow is a published writer and pho- tographer with a vast knowledge of antiques and their histor y. Snow was the owner of Terra Cotta in Las Vegas, an exclusive architectural vintage galler y, which was featured in numerous West Coast magazines. Weathered decorations, old chains, sea glass, abalone shells, worn-out fishing nets, glass floats and many more objects from the ocean make great decorating pieces for home and garden. The more beat up and antique the item, the more character it possesses. Vintage postcards from the seashore, surfboards, mermaids and fish decorations bring the alluring mystery of the coast into one's life. Photos: Marjorie Snow
