A Treasured Whelk....

I'm so excited that I arrived home today to a package that I've really been looking forward to receiving.   Last week, I saw an amazingly pretty whelk shell from Beautiful Details  that was featured on Completely Coastal's  weekly Coastal Mix - Summer Decorations and Inspirations...and just knew I had to have it in my house.



I'm a huge fan of Carol's amazing coastal inspired vintage bottles...and so I knew that I would love this special whelk. And I do.  Here it is in its new home....what a perfect match.  



So what do you think?  Isn't this a pretty special little seashell?

The shade of blue is so you...I can see why you had to have it. I think I might have to check out this place and see what trouble I can get into! Have a great 4th of July!

*GASP* That shell is beyond beautiful!! I knew the moment I saw it that you are a girl after my own heart, and I immediately became a follower. =] I have the same kind of shell that I am seriously considering painting that beautiful turquoise color now...

Hope you got my email..., and yes, I'd love to check out Sunny Isles..., and maybe get an exotic drink or snack somewhere? Mexican or Cuban?!
