Seashells, Seashells by the Seashore

Or NOT!! Maybe I should say seashells by Pottery Barn, because that's where these came from. On my latest trip to PB I picked up a bag of shells and sand to add a little bit of summery touches around the house. 
The shell's were on sale too :-)





     Found these glass balls wrapped in netting in a clearance basket!




Had so many shells left over I started walking around the house to see where else I could use some.




Took the moss covered rocks out that I had in my little silver candy dish my mom bought me and added a few in there.


                                            





Have a great weekend everyone! We are celebrating Victoria's 5th b-day with family on Sunday. I can't believe my baby is going to kindergarten in September :(

After July 4th I put my seashells out for the rest of summer. I am anxious to do it...although, I could pout, I don't have any of those glass balls and there is no PB near me. Love your vignettes...

As someone who lives in a land-locked state, I completely appreciate buying PB shells :) Besides, who really finds that many gorgeous shells in one trip to the beach? They look great!

I've got a little one heading to kindergarten this Fall, too. Time really does fly! Happy 5th birthday to Victoria!

This is beautiful Martina. I love seashells. I've wondered if I could manage to do a mirror frame.

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Hi MArtina, I always like shells in the house and yours look wonderful in the glass dish! Happy birthday to your baby girl! I remember when mine went to kindergarten. I was devastated until a friend told me to think of how much she would learn and grow there, and then I realized it was the right thing for her! Linda p.s. Mine just graduated from college a few weeks ago!

Anita @ Cedar Hill Ranch said...

Those are some of the most beautiful shells I have seen!

BluBabesCreate said...

Love the chair in the background. And of course the seashells.

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Hi Martina...

Oooh...sooo pretty, my friend! That apothecary jar is gorgeous filled with the pretty shells! I love that you used twine around the jar lid! It really IS in all the details! And...I love how the shells look with the silver! I'm going to have to try that! Pretty, pretty, PRETTY!!! Martina, your photos are fabulous! They would be so pretty framed! Girlfriend, I have been hunting for the glass sea balls...I really like the netted ones! Sheeesh...I can't seem to find them anywhere!

Well dear friend, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful seashell vignette with us...I love it! And...thanks so much for coming by today! I always enjoy our visits, dear friend!

Warmest summery wishes,
Chari

Love the shells. I haven't done shells except for OnlySon's Rehearsal dinner in FL. I think I'm dragging all that out and using it this summer!
