In case you didn't know, I LOVE seashells!
Earlier this week, I started reading The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde
Pilcher, and I remembered my box of seashells...the one that I'd put away for the winter...high on the closet shelf. So with shells on my mind, I got them down...cleared off the coffee table and made a little vignette..
I found the lantern at Marshall's last week...oh, I have a thing for lanterns, too.
No, I'm not reading this book, I've read it, but I needed something else on the table, and that was the closest thing at hand that worked with the look.
The round alabaster bowl usually holds coasters...Hubby will be looking everywhere for them.
Poor guy, finally after all these years of marriage, he's getting used to my moving things around.
The foyer chest was bare since I put away the bunny print and tulips, so I decided to go ahead and put some shells there, too.
I just piled them in a chicken-wire basket with Spanish moss in the bottom...
... and added three fern fronds in a vase behind them, to give it a little extra something.
The shell painting on the chest and the two ship prints on the wall came from the thrift store a few months ago.
Here's a closer look at the ship prints...
And here on the desk, I added a sea biscuit as a paperweight...
I guess I'd better get back to my book and oh...here's one last shell...
Do you love seashells as much as I do?
