Ahoy!, or Oy!?





We were spending the weekend with friends in Long Island and got to go on a lazy Sunday stroll through Sag Harbor -- one of my favorite places to stroll. At the beautiful Beach Bungalow Home Furnishings (no dedicated website, so you'll have to take my word for it) we spotted porthole mirrors similar to these ones I just found on eBay (Beach House's were shiny silver). We're still looking for a long dresser for our bedroom (pictured in my "We're in the Chips" post), so I thought maybe two or three spaced out in a row over it (in lieu of the more expected large, bureau mirror) could be clever? So is it:

Ahoy! They'd be fine in a shore house not chock-a-block with seashells, beach ephemera, coastal knick-knacks, etc., etc.

or

Oy! Are you kidding me? Is this shorehouse chic or Gilligan's Island?

Thanks, ladies! I'm thinking I should probably wait on the portholes for over the dresser...until there's a dresser. :-) But there seems to be no shortage on eBay. Ahh...what did we do before the internets?
