ms*kali @ enjoying the journey ~ had a trip to the seaside and found some great shells that she made a mobile with.
Which reminded me of some wonderful ideas to use those mementoes from sea side holidays. We had a cute little seaside holiday home, which we sold a few months ago and every time we went to stay, I would go for a walk to the 'shell graveyard' and bring back a lovely assortment of shells.
*put them in gorgeous old pressed glass bowls and place a tea light on the top ... *make a shell wreath to hang at the front door *a shell string that I have now hanging in the arbor *fill lovely old jars with them & sit them around your home..maybe a label to remind where they came from *another great idea that I saw in one of my many magazines ~ *find an old string bag, fill it with shells and hang from an old fence post in the garden ~ a touch of whimsy.
In my dining room, I have an old plastic colander full of my shells.. I will post some pictures later this week... I love to share my ideas..... we all get inspiration from each other....
