I live in Australia, my ancestry is in Cornwall. a Celt. a hedgewitch of sorts. I am an Earth Healer. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. A gypsy. An eccentric. a mystic. I am a searcher, a seeker, a pilgrim on Earth. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. I love to dream, to walk and to wonder

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

sea shells


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....

I've made shell mobiles whenever we've come back from the beach. Usually we hang them up around the front door area where the wind makes them clang together and make noise. Such a lovely thing to do too.

Your post triggered memories from reading 'Anne's House of Dreams'. Oh how I loved that book. Time to read the series again."Her new home could not yet be seen; but before her lay Four Winds Harbour like a great, shining mirror of rose and silver." Beauty is a poet, yes? For years we had a huge shell that we could put our ear to and 'hear' the ocean'. Thanks for the memories *smile*.
