Dishing up Shells
Sometimes just mixing a few simple things can make such a statement. Over the years I have collected many shells from our trips away to the beach. I decided to place a few of them on a vintage serving plate I picked up at a garage sale recently. The plate is a little rough in places from years of use, but I think it works perfectly with the shells. They too are a little chipped and imperfect, succumbing to years of battering by the sea. So now I can see my beautiful shells every morning before I grab my keys and head out the door. I am reminded of all the lovely beaches I have visited (and fallen for). Do you have some special trinkets hiding away that should be on display?
