she doesn't sell her seashells....

...by the seashore.....she gives them away on her blog.  Well, she did a few weeks ago anyway.  And, I was one of the lucky recipients.  Decorator lights and container too.... the perfect size for a curio cabinet. The bears approve.


"Ooooooo ..... lookit "!!















'what is it' ?.....




















"Pretties".......

The way they were all hanging out so close to it I think they thought perhaps it was a campfire or
something.... thanks Linda....we all (the bears and me) love our shells in their mini hurricane lamp.  Well, that's what it reminds me of anyway..

A little bit of Florida now resides with each of us winners ... shells gathered on her favourite beaches.

Maybe we can't all go to the beach ... ...but, the beach can come to us.



















I really like this white one near the top... it looks like fabric or something... not a shell at all... and the curlicue one that looks kind of like the centre of a flower...and the one down below that looks like a delicate snowflake .. and the burgundy stripes in the one above that and... hahahha... I love 'em all don't I? .. thanks again Linda.

This is lovely and gives off a soft light; I can see why your bears have gathered round.

What a lovely way to display the shells!! I have some shells that I have picked up from beaches around the world - I keep them on a shelf in my bathroom. Your bears are just so cute!!

So glad they made it there in one piece and that you and the bears like them. What a cute picture that makes with your bears gazing at the shells.

I love that "fur" on the bear in your header.

The bears look quite impressed and it's easy to see why. The lights really add a lovely touch to the shells. You're a lucky girl!

Hi Vee,

Lovely shells and I like the way they are lit up.
I have a large glass jar in the bathroom, full of shells, which I love.

Happy weekend
Hugs

Congrats on your win you lucky girl!! I like your photo of the week, too! Good work on the "shadow" theme!

Linda said...

I much prefer 'natural ornaments' like shells and pebbles - you have displayed these beautifully.

Thank you very much for your lovely kind words on my blog - I really appreciate them.
