Adorning Seashells

For awhile now I have been meaning to adorn a seashell since I have seen this done so brilliantly over at Betsy's Blogspot, " My Salvaged Treasures ".



Betsy inspired me to collect all of the goodies to make a decorated shell as a keepsake.




The best part for me is picking out which vintage treasures to line up to fit the mood that I am in at that moment in time.




This is what I ended up with...


I have another shell to decorate at a later date.




This one I have adorned with vintage porcelain flowers and pearl earrings that caught my eye at the time.




As Betsy had done, I had lined the rim of the shell with some vintage rhinetones.  I would like to thank Betsy for her inspiration and invite you to visit her blog.  Just click on her banner below:

Betsy's shell was incredibly gorgeous and I don't know how I missed that giveaway! But your shell is equally gorgeous and I am sure you will treasure it for years to come! Sadly we don't have shells like that on Pensacola beach. If I wanted to do something similar I would have first find a shell online to order! Lol! Again, your shell is very beautiful!

Oh my goodness Mo, your shell is stunning! Aren't they so much fun? I love the flowered jewels you used and how it all blends so naturally. Thank you so much for inspiring me to get busy on more of them. Beautiful job as always.

Beautiful, dear Mo. Just beautiful. You are so artistic and creative. Now I would never have thought of doing that. Hope you are having a great week. Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

p.s. Cannot leave comments through my Google account on some blogs. Today, that was how it was on your blog. Sad but true. Don't know why this happens.

OMGosh, Mo~!!! You made that? It is gorgeous! I love it- It is like something you would see in an antique shop with a very high price tag attached. You did a grand job of beautifying that shell! LOVE IT! xo Diana
