My Favorite Things: Shells & Starfish

I have collected shells since I was a child.  They are the most fantastic colors and shapes.  They are just like jewels from the sea.  I absolutely love them.
I have some here in an egg basket.  
 I love to put them with candles.
  Oh, and I love starfish too.
Sometimes my candles have starfish in them.
I have a Grandmother that always put seashells in her flower pots and beds. 
I loved that!  It reminded my of that nursery rhyme.
Mary, Mary, quite contrary 
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockle shells 
and pretty maids all in a row.
I like my shells in silver too.
I just love them everywhere all year long.
I will be joining Laurie at her site Chatting and Bargain Hunting with Laurie for My Favorite Things.
I will also link up to Cindy at her site My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.



Hello, Love, Love, Love shells and starfish too! What a pretty display. I recently did a photo memory jar with sand I brought back from the beach, with shells and vacation pictures. You might enjoy seeing it at:

Thank you for sharing, my show and tell today is of my decorated bench with a tribute to my mother. I hope you have a chance to come by for a visit.

Shells are jewels of the sea. I'm drawn to most organic things from nature. Love the texture and the beautiful colors. Lovely post!

I love your shells and how you have displayed them! I have collected shells for a long time, too, and I love to do shell crafting. After seeing your post, I want to put all of mine on display! I usually wait til summer to decorate with them.

I love shells also but I have never found a way to incorporate them into my decor. You are so cleaver in how you've used yours!!
