Iotrochota birotulata

Can anyone tell me what the title of today's blog refers to???

Anyone? Anyone? Anyone?



Iotrochota birotulata is a species of demosponge in the phylum Porifera. It is found in shallow waters in the Caribbean Sea. It is commonly referred to as "finger sponge".



I picked up a couple bunches of this interesting sponge at local fave, AKA Stella Gray this week. I added each to the apothecary jars in the niches between the parlor and stair parlor. I adore the height each finger sponge gives to the arrangement. Bleached white starfish fill the base.







The finger sponge add uniqueness to my nautical curiosity collections.

Finger sponges, y'all!

Share Your Style #20

From my gold gilded clam shell to a new orchid arrangement in the den, it has been a great week. I even had time for a cocktail or two.



Here's hoping you and yours have a Happy 4th of July weekend. Cheers!



Thanks for joining Share Your Style #20.

Welcome

 to the 20th SHARE YOUR STYLE party





 We are grateful to each and everyone one that joins in the party each week.  You have made it such a success! Your inspiration and style is such a pleasure to see. This week, your host is me, Lynn, of The Vintage Nest blog. I have not done much stylin' this week as all my family is coming for a visit for several weeks and I have been preparing for that.....cooking and freezing meals, cleaning, trimming up the yard from the Spring overgrowth, painting, planning a 4th of July party,  and just so looking forward to seeing them.  I thought I would just share with you a simple dish I plan to make that involves all that delicious corn that will soon be coming into season.  Sourced from a little community country paper we receive each month
 It's easy and so yum!!!!

******(cook's note:  1 pint is 1 reg. size canned corn)

When you share your link with us, it will go on 8 blogs each week.....great exposure.



Now on to the party and features from last week.

And speaking of corn and summer recipes, Home is where the Boat Is gives a plethora of yummy summer recipes with gorgeous photographs to go with it.  You are bound to find at least one you want to try.  I know I did.  



We are having a large gathering for 4th of July but I hadn't yet decided on my table setting.  But now I have!  I have a large white tote and will be using our very own SYS hostess, Debra of Common Ground's post for my inspiration.  Thank you Debra,.....that's what this Share Your Style party is all about.....inspiration. :)



So many of us vacation at the seashore for our summer vacation, so wouldn't the kids love these darling beachy cupcakes for a treat one evening?
 Ms. Toody Goo Shoes tells us how to make them on her delightful blog.   



Fleaing France is In the Pink with her post.  So pretty....I wanted to share.  I think I need to start looking for an old bicycle I can paint pink.....how about you?




Home to Cottage turned a dingy white Craigslist find into a charming beach themed table using "Wonders of the Sea' gift wrap.  Isn't it so cute!!?

Please add a link back to our party on your individual post,  :)  And if you were highlighted this week, we would love for you to wear this button on your blog.  Can't wait to see your style :) Let the party begin.
