Beautiful Hanging Shells....


Hi everyone I hope your having a great Monday.....

I wanted to show you what I made this past weekend. I had these shells that I had painted white and Sean drilled a little hole into for me.... Then they sat for a couple of months while I thought of what to do with them.... Notice my repurposed buckle that I kept off one of Payton's baby dresses...

 

 Then on Saturday, out of nowhere I was inspired to finally "do" something with them.... I threaded the shells with raffia twine and attached them to the buckle. 

  
I roughly measured so that I had 4 ranging from largest to smallest and they also make a really cool clinking sound when they hit against each other


 I took a million photographs to show them off.... I was so excited  - they look fantastic, much better than I expected... here are just a few of those million photos...

 
   

What do you all think? 

Thanks for stopping by...
