I'm crazy for tortoise right about now.
This coffee table top isn't helping any.
One of the last times I was at Scott Antique Market in Atlanta,
I found this vintage tortoise shell cuff.
I wear it almost every day.

Check out these heart-stopping antique tortoise shell pieces...
...a beautiful tea caddy
and a tortoise shell cameo from the 1700's.
(found these on pinterest, of course)
I'm also crazy for vintage bamboo pieces with that tortoise shell look.

I found this great English coat/umbrella stand at an antiques auction
several years back.
The bamboo has that light-and-dark amber tortoise shell look.

And, of course, my bar cart has a little tortoise on it...
