Beach Party

It is time for the "Beach Party" hosted by Gina @ The Shabby Chic Cottage http://www.theshabbychiccottage.net/ . She is hosting this party, so everyone can show their beach related decor, such as shells, starfish, etc. Thank you Gina for hosting this event. I don't have a lot of beach related items , but do have a few shells around.

A bowl with some sand (daughter brought the sand from Florida), white crushed rock, and shells around a candle.



Shells on my coffee table. Took photo a while back, but they are still there.


A watercolor picture of shells and sand dollars that my Sister painted.


And the jar with shells in a window.
That is my contribution to "Beach Party". More than likely after I post this, I will run across a couple of other things I could have included, as that happened when I joined in the the "Feathered Friends" party. :-) If you have not already, go over to visit Gina @ The Shabby Chic Cottage to see what she and the other participants have to share.
Have a great day!

Hi Glenda,
Love what you did with the seashells especially those in the jar, such beautiful colors. Your sister did a wonderful job with her watercolor, she is very talented.
Thanks for sharing.

Hello Glenda - love all your shells! I spy a seashell ball in your display. That's my favorite! Thank you for sharing.

Your sister is a talented painter! And I love those glass urns; I've been wanting to get some myself but I'm not sure they'd last long in my house...

The shells on your coffee table are a wonderful collection!

And OH MY GOODNESS! I love your sister's watercolor painting!

What a fun Beach Party!

Blessings & Aloha!

Love the fact that you haven't just got any sand in there with your candle, but sand your daughter brought for you. Isn't it nice when our vignettes can have memories and connections like that.

The water color that your sister painted is just beautiful. Rhonda

I love your shells in the jar and the lettering on it. Very pretty! I love the color inside the shells with the candle. Beautiful!

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

Love, love, love the watercolor your sister did. And all it takes is a few shells to have a beachy decor. And I know what you mean about finding more things after you have posted. Happens to me all the time.
