Spring Shells - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  

Last weekend I received an unexpected package in the mail!  

I was so surprised when I opened it and found these beautiful glittered shells!  They are from a fellow blogger ~ "M" at OC Cottage!  She had sent me some of these years ago and I display them in my tiered dish every Christmas.  After a couple years they weren't looking so sparkly any longer so I tried to re-glitter them but they didn't look as nice as hers.  What a nice surprise to receive a new batch of her creations!   They are so sparkly, these photos do not do them justice!

I picked some flowers from my garden and put them on a silver tray and added some candles. The candlelight makes the glittered shells sparkle even more!

I love shells and I love sparkly things so sparkly shells are gorgeous in my eyes!  I'm going to have so much fun using these in different arrangements around my home! Thank you "M"!  I LOVE them!  You are so generous to share them with me!!!

Thanks to all of you that join in on Show and Tell Friday every week and thanks to all of you who leave such nice comments!

Very nice of her to resend the pretty starfish all sparkly and cute for you.

Whew, finally made it to the party- nearly forgot about it being rescheduled for today- how silly of me. But I did make it (in the 40s this week)

Smiles and thanks for hostessing,

Oh, Cindy! You lucky, lucky gal! I LOVE the shells. I can see them in so many vignettes around my home. Sigh.
Thank you for hosting such great parties and I hope you had lovely trip. I hope you're glad to be back, too, in your own lovely nest.
