>We’re celebrating the coastal lifestyle with SEASHELLS today ~ we found some wonderful & inspiring seashell ideas that we just HAD to share!

Sharlotte of Ms Sharlotte’s Southern Reflections inspires us with her easy and fast seashell display boxes. 

“I found a little shadow box at Salvation Army, scrounged around a bit and found its mate. Yea! I’m always drawn to these and couldn’t resist. They were only 99 cents…no harm, right? I liked the color of the frames but had a different idea for the background. Taking off the back, I replaced the balloons with burlap and a seashell. It was quick and easy. With a little bit of Windex, I had a new addition to my home.”

What a gorgeous display ~Sharlotte’s framed starfish fits right in!

Our delightful beach friend, Rita, of Beach House Living shared some of her fabulous glittered shell decorations on her blog recently. I’m so totally in awe of these and I want them all.  You must visit her blog and see all of the photos…you’ll drool ~ literally :O)

“These glittery shells somehow brighten the grayest of days every time they are removed from their boxes. All they need is a tiny bit of light to glimmer. They never fail to produce a smile…That must be the reason we have over 150 of these glittered beauties alone.”

While we’re sharing seashells, my daughter said that I should share my “Seashell Shadow Box” with you. My mother originally purchased the shadow box in the 1950’s and it has seen many make-overs throughout the years. I re-decorated it for my mother about ten years ago and added the seashells, green paint and gold gilding. It now resides in our guest room and holds some favorite knick knacks.

That’s about it for today ~ I hope you have a beachy weekend.  I’m hoping that everyone has entered to WIN our picnic basket giveaway which ends on Monday…if not, here’s the LINK!
