Did I Tell You I Loved Seashells


Of course, I may have mentioned it a few times that I LOVED seashells.....we collect them wherever we go. Some of the filler shells that you see on the bottom of some of the jars we picked up in Alaska along the seashore, others were collected by my grandchildren because they know I love shells so much, others I picked up in South Florida walking on the beach with my hubby. Most of the large conch shells we purchased when we were in the Bahamas and in the Caribbean and some were gifts from family members who were traveling in the Caribbean.







As you can see, I keep most of my shells in apothecary jars so that I don't have to dust them individually......the shells in the trays are more convenient to move and to dust under and around and of course, I love the shabby chic and vintage looking trays.

Love your shells!! Apothecary jars are great for storing so many things aren't they! And you are right...sure cuts down on the dust gathering on them!
