SeaShells Jackpot!

Hey there –  finally it’s starting to smell like spring and I’m sooo happy.  I see the daffodils and tulips popping their heads up from underground preparing us for all the beautiful colors to come as nature changes her season.   With warmer weather comes the influx of yard sales – YIPPEEE! – and you know how I love those yard sales.   There was a one in town this past weekend and there were lots of goodies – but I took it easy buying .. the prices were excellent.  I’ve been wanting sea shells but they’re so expensive in the stores.  A small bag runs about $4.00-$5.00  and there are usually small ones inside.  But look what I got for $4.00  –  It was the Sea Shell Jackpot!


I was so happy because I’ve been wanting some to put inside my apothecary jars for a spring look, so, those came right on time.  I changed up the the foyer cabby with a new look..  I still had the fall display on it, so with spring coming it was time.

So from this:


I went to this:

The shells and clear glass brightens up the space.  This little cabinet has really been a real winner.  You can see the transformation here.

What a difference $4.00 made

  1. Oh, that is lovely. Sparkling jars and texture and interesting shapes to say nothing about the soft colors. Wendy from lilhuckleberries. com is doing a very interesting project on vignettes called Mondays Moments and I bet she would love to have a photo(s) of this vignette and the one with the feathers. They are good. She is asking people to send theirs to her.

  2. Wow What a steal of a deal! Nice size shells too! That vignette looks beautiful. And you put them in the cabinet too. Nice touch!! I love apothecary jars too.

I enjoy reading your comments
