  2. I’m drooling over all those lovely vintage blows and glass canisters. I know I should be looking at the shells but I’m drawn to all the lovely things you’ve displayed them in.

  10. That coral is gorgeous! Good find. Aren't shells the best, they are so easy to decorate with and they always look good.

  12. Very pretty! You have lots of shells! Our maser bathroom is nautical-inspired and at one time, I had a row-boat shelf filled with shells and starfish in there. I recently took them out and gave the shells & starfish to my daughter. The wallpaper boarder has enough nautical items in it and the wallpaper looks like bleached boards. I still enjoy it but know that one day all that wallpaper has to come down.
    Hope you have a great day!
