Good Tuesday morning everyone! I hope you are not MELTING in this heat!!! Today we are going to continue the tour of how I "summerized" the house with my shell collection! As I said yesterday, I have ALOT of shells, collected over 30 plus years! I just love their organic nature and all the different shapes, sizes and colors! So, here we start in the dining room. On the table I placed a neutral runner that actually has a sandy color to it with palm trees embroidered on the ends. The centerpiece is a LARGE, faux clam shell that I got at the place where I used to work. I LOOOOVE it! I filled it with shells of all shapes and sizes! On each side is a simple crystal candle holder with a sandy colored candle.Close up of the "shell". It is some material that really feels and looks like a real shell!!!!
