By The Sea Shore!!!
I'm not usually a big fan of beach-themed items in a house but I thought this was classy enough! I purchased this glass canister at Home Goods http://keepitsimpleyay.blogspot.com/2011/04/new-finds.html for about $6.00 a few months back when I first discovered that store. The price is pretty good considering you see these things for $20.00 or more in most stores. The shells were all found at the Outer Banks of North Carolina so they were freebies. I had leftover shells that I painted with blue latex paint for a Christmas cone tree http://keepitsimpleyay.blogspot.com/search/label/More%20Cone%20Trees that I made so I thought this would be lovely! I mixed them with some shells that I didn't paint.
I LOVE it! It's a wonderfully soothing natural accent that offers contrast to the walls and to the dark furniture. What do you think? Do you like beachy decor? I like and it was super easy!
