This is another shelf in the room with a few more shells displayed. Most of these came from a great yardsale I found last year…the couple had owned a shell shop in FL & had some great pieces.
I’ve always loved seashells & it seems I have gone through stages of collecting them & then getting tired of them & discarding them over the years. I have managed to hang on to a few special ones that I’ve had for many years now & decided to put them on the glass shelves in my entertainment center in the den. So, here they are, such pretty colors & textures & I love how they shine when the light is on them. My rug & fabrics down here have some lighter shades of blue, so I thought it would be neat to add some aqua accents to my shell collection to bring more of that beautiful color in the room too. Here’s where I’m starting & I hope to add more along the way. I’ve seen some neat Hull pottery on Ebay that would really mix in here well, so I would love to collect some of those old pieces as well. These aren’t old, but it’s a start. The skinny vases came from Tuesday AM for $3 each & yesterday when I was out to lunch and browsing in an antiques store with some friends, I spotted this pretty blue bowl…it has little brown speckles and even though it’s not an antique (made in China….please!!), it looks great with the pieces I already have. Now I’m really excited to see what else I can find that blends in with these pieces. Just what I need….another thing to be on the lookout for!
I’ve been lucky & managed to find a lot of neat shells at yardsales last year. This big conch shell (I have 2 of these) came from the Phillipines, where my aunt & uncle were missionaries there back in the 60’s.
