SHE SELLS SEA SHELLS

It certainly is
SHELL SEASON!
Here are some interesting and fun ways to display
shells
you may find on the beach this summer.

There are even some pretty items that are shell inspired
either by their shape or pattern

Come with me and see...
even if you aren't at the beach,

you'll sure feel like you are!!

Shells look great scattered around
or added to a pretty plaque
or added to vintage bottles
like these
Some shells make great hooks to hang curtains
while some shells make a statement
all by themselves!
Put them on mantels

or shelves
Put them in large vases
or jars
or vintage buckets
Drape your jewelry on them
or make them into jewelry!
Like the necklace from this
Etsy Shop
or this charming charm bracelet from
MIMI TORIA DESIGNS

Tea at the beach never tasted so good
This beautiful photography is from HERE
or these cookies, for that matter!
You can buy them HERE
Of course, there's ALWAYS
a cupcake :)
or two
...maybe more
These cakes are perfect
for a
wedding on the beach
(What a clever Bride and Groom)
You can even glue shells on other things
Like lighting
or shelves
Frames
and mirrors
This one is so cool :)
This shell vessel sink is a sure winner!!
You can string shells and make festive garland
or group a bunch to create a pretty vignette
These candles look so much better
adorned with these shells
, don't you think?
Sometimes things just look like shells
...like these soaps

you can find here at this ETSY SHOP
or these boxed sets from
Gianna Rose Atelier
These shell dishes create an enticing buffetWhile some shells can even hang on the wall!
Some make the most
gorgeous pillows :)
These IRRESISTIBLE Coasters
can be found in
What not to love about shells?
I think I can hear the ocean now!!

How about you???

How beautiful. I love that seashells remind me of the ocean. And being so far from the ocean these days I appreciate them all the more!
Have a lovely week!!

I love those mirrors! In Nantucket a lot of houses in town have starfish in their windows and in the transom window above the front door, it's so cute! xo

Hi Gail, gorgeous shell inspirations... I guess I can hear the ocean...
Hugs, Bine
My sister-in-law, who was visiting last week, told me that she has always wanted to be a starfish. (Who knew?) So I'll be on the lookout for starfishy things for her. :)
