A Bowl of Seaside Treasures....

I love to change up my home accessories on a regular basis and I've learned to use many of my little treasures in different ways....to create a variety of looks.  As I am getting ready to start my holiday decorating (soon)...I wanted something fresh for my family room coffee table.  So I pulled together some of my favorite things...and mixed them up for something new.  

First, I started off with a glass pedestal display bowl from Michael's....


Then some craft sand....


And added in some of my favorite things...

Smaller sized aqua and green Glass Floats
Green Turbo Shells.....

Miscellaneous starfish, green and beige shells, sand dollars and coral


Then I placed the sand and smaller shells around the perimeter of the bowl...


Added in the larger turbo shells...


Dropped in the larger shells, starfish, coral and sand dollars....and then put in the three glass floats.








I'm happy with how it came out.  Especially the glass floats mixed in with the green turbo shells.

The shells sitting softly on the sand, and the floats adding the hand of man... brilliantly arranged, & so pretty in your room of seaglass colors.

Peaceful weekend to you :-)
