MY HANDMADE SEASHELL TOPIARIES

THIS IS A PICTURE OF MY BUFFET IN MY DINING ROOM. ON EACH END IS A SEASHELL TOPIARY THAT I MADE SEVERAL YEARS AGO. ALSO ON THE TABLE IS AN ORIGINAL SAILORS ART BOX. IT IS MY ONLY REAL SEA RELATED ANTIQUE THAT I HAVE. ALSO ON THE BUFFET IS A PICTURE THAT I TREASURE OF MY GRANDMOTHER AND DAD IN THE 1940'S NEAR THE END OF WW11. SHE AND MY GRANDFATHER WENT TO VISIT HIM WHERE HE WAS STATIONED.
I AM LINKING TODAYS POST TO CINDY'S SHOW AND TELL FRIDAY AT http://www.romantichome.blogspot.com/ and FEATURE YOURSELF FRIDAY AT http://www.fingerprintsonthefridge.com/ AND FAVORITE THINGS AT http://thehillsarelivin.blogspot.com/ .

  2. What a great picture and so appropriate next to a display of shells. I'm going to keep this in mind as I've always wanted to use shells but couldn't think of how to combine them with an old photograph. You just showed me how! Thanks!!

  7. Those are just awesome - and what a lot of work. I love all your shabby wrought iron pieces I see, also. Such a pretty, calming blue and white space you have. :) Nancy

  12. What a great idea for using your sea shells. I just bought some tin pots I am going to convert to shell pots. I will post a picture on my blog. I have enjoyed visiting your blog. I loved reading about the 4 day yard sale and I adore your chippy white birdcage. I have a similar one :) I came here from VTT.

  13. Oh my, a seashell topiary! What a wonderful idea that is! It turned out gorgeous:) I'm hoping to incorporate some seashells into my decor soon. I had a ton that I'd found in FL a while back but I think I tossed them:(

  17. What a great photo of your dad and grandmother. That is such an incredible thing that they could visit him where he was stationed. It must have meant the world to him. :-)
