Inspiration for Spring

Yesterday, I stopped in at Michaels with my 50% off coupon -- and was inspired.
Lots of goodies were on sale, and this is what I ended up with.

This great decorative plate.
Crushed shells, shell balls, and a spicy vanilla candle.

Do you see where this is going?  No?  Stay with me.

How about this?
I covered the indented area of the plate with crushed shell,
and added the shell balls.


Take away a shell ball, and add the candle.


If you're into balance and symmetry...


There's was lots of leftover crushed shell,
so I added some around this candle as well.

As I look at these photos, I'm realizing that
I have totally been inspired by
Sarah at A Beach Cottage.
Check out her monochromatic decorating style.
It's totally inspiring for life at the beach.
{Let's not talk about the fact that I live in the midwest
 -- and we're still not done with winter!}
As my kids would say: WHATEVER.

  2. Hello Sally! I am awarding you with "Stylish Blogger Award"!

  3. Hi Sally! I had to come over and see what everyone was looking at. I don't know why I haven't seen this post in my reader. But I do want to say that I love that platter. It makes for a great display. The whole thing came together beautifully!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one, and truly enjoy "conversations" with you! ~Sally
