Meet Meredith...

Collections...
they're fun, aren't they?
 
 
And with most collections, the thrill is in the hunt.
 
 
You never know when you'll find another addition,
one that makes you smile.

 
Welcome to Tablescape Thursday!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


"Meredith" is the centerpiece for this table...her name means, protector of the sea.
Kinda perfect for a seashell collection, right?
 
 
Her headdress was made from shells collected from all sort of travels,
most notably from Sanibel Island.
 
 
With a little braided headband, she's wearing her favorites.
 


 
Dressing a table with favorites is fun too, right?
 
 
Thanks so much for visiting!
 
 
 
I'm joining Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch for her Tablescape Thursday.
Drop by for loads of inspiration.
 
 
Until next time,
Sharlotte

  1. I'm so impressed with Meredith's headdress. That's really beautiful, and what a creative way to use a sea shell collection. It adds a whimsy to this table which is completely creative and like nothing I've seen to date. (And considering the amount of time I spend stalking tablescapes, that's pretty amazing.

    1. Good Morning, Debbie!
      Thanks for dropping by...and the kind words. I've seen similar pieces (like Meredith) in specialty magazines and always wanted to try to replicate one for my home. When I saw her sweet face, I knew she would be my project!

  7. This is quite an extraordinary table! I've never seen a shell collection displayed so creatively. How long did it take you to complete your beautiful lady? I love all the neutral colors you've chosen with your plates, etc. They perfectly accent your theme. So well done. Bravo!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

    1. Hi Roise! Thanks so much for dropping by! I'm glad you like this shell table.
      To make Meredith, I began with a pretty plaster bust. I loved her expression. I braided jute for her headband and lined that with crushed shells. The top of her headdress is just a matter of arranging shells - kinda like a puzzle. The shells used are from our shelling, a lot of favorites...each one I make is special and unique!

    1. Hi Susie! I love Meredith too. Making one of these was on my list, I finally had all the components. She's unique and I guess that's why she always makes me smile! It took a while to make her, but it was fun to play with all the different arrangements. Thanks so much for visiting today!
