Sally Lee By the Sea is one of my daily stops in blogville. This seaside blog emanates all things beachy & coastal. Get your daily fix of ocean-going home dec, shopping, beach crafts, & travel all brought to you by mother/daughter team Marie & Liz. I love the print boxes they are featuring today as shell displays. In my own home I have re-used the print box/shadow boxes from my own childhood to display my best "keeper" shells on my living room wall. A coat of Caribbean blue spray paint gave them new life & is a nice tropical background to show off every shell & beach combing find.
|My display changes with the ebb & flow of tides of new shells, give away's, & thrifting finds.|
|The pride of SWFL - junonias line the top (sadly, none of which I have found). Bobbers, old bottle bottom, & a shell belle made by my mom are all considered worthy of display in the box.|
|Sunrise tellin (originally from the Bahamas but via a garage sale to me) & little horse conchs (aka candy corn) from SWFL beaches.|
|Another GeeGee (my Mom) creation - little shell critter bird in the buttercup bath.|
|My replica Sanibel Lighthouse stands in front of a thrift store mirror. It all makes for a sweet display.|
