Decorating With Shells

I have always loved the feel of decorating with shells all around the house. I think it comes from growing up near the ocean and now especially since we live so far from it, I seem to be bringing out my shell collection more. I have come to really miss the beach though when we lived near it I hardly went. Isn’t it strange how you never know how much you love something until it is gone?! My favorite style of home has always been a Hampton style home decked out in blue and white and lots of shells displayed all around. Hmm . . .not too sure I am going to get that here in Texas. So daydream with me a bit . . . Use shells in light fixtures for a coastal feel to a room
