Seashell Boxes

I found a little shadow box at Salvation Army, scrounged around a bit and found its mate. Yea! I'm always drawn to these and couldn't resist. They were only 99 harm, right?

I liked the color of the frames but had a different idea for the background. Taking off the back, I replaced  the balloons with burlap and a seashell. It was quick and easy. With a little bit of Windex, I had a new addition to my home.

Because these little guys are only about 4 inches square, they'll be easy to move around from place to place.

Today I'm joining, Susan's Between Naps on the Porch for her Metamorphosis Monday, Rhoda's Southern Hospitality for her Today's Thrifty Monday, Marty's A Stroll Thru Life for her Tabletop Tuesday, and Linda's Coastal Charm for her Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays. Be sure to drop by these ladies' parties for a great time!

Thanks for stopping by to visit...enjoy your day!


  1. Very cute. Now I have some ideas next time I see a little shadow box like that.

  2. I really like your seashell boxes and the entire vingette. Decorating with shells is one of my favorites.


  3. Thank you for stopping by my blog and the nice comments. I have a collection of tarnished silver too and love to combine it with other things in vignettes. Your shells and silver are wonderful together...and the little shells and burlap in frames.

  4. So clever, simple and stylish, and also, cheap! Love the combo of burlap and the shells, wonderful contrast.

  5. I love shadow boxes, too. And sea shells! So I really love what you did with these. Great idea!

  6. Aren't shadow boxes the best. I love the framed shell with the starfish...really lovely.

  7. I love what you did with those shadow boxes!!! Too cute!
