A lightbulb went off when I saw these. It's been years since I've used them in decorating, and I thought they would add a light, summery feel to the house. Since it will likely be fall before we make it to the beach for our vacation, I wanted to bring that beachy feel to our home now, and thought these shells would do the trick.
Does anyone know what kind of shells these are? I think they are from the Philippines.
The shells below are from our past trips to the beach. I put them in one of my favorite pottery bowls and set them on the coffee table. While they are not as exotic as the shells above, I think they are even more beautiful -- maybe because they were found by us and bring back pleasant memories of walks on the beach.
Even the bathroom shelf is now home to these two ivory-colored shells (again, from our former designer neighbor). I have a few more of this type of shell. I think they would look pretty in a bowl or wide cylindrical vase.
