Outdoor decorating



Here are those apple shells recently found by DH. He hung this shelf unit for me today, we found it a month or so ago, curbside shopping. This is outside our backdoor, in our soon to be screened room. Our plum colored cottage is fading to a gray.

Your shells look great displayed on that very nice shelf. I love shells and have them everywhere...indoors and out. That flamingo plate really caught my eye...very nice!

Oh so nice! You found that shelf on a curb?? Incredible what folks will get rid of. I love those plates too! :)

That's a beautiful wall display. I love your new header photo, such a lovely rose.

What a pretty combination.

I like the gray too.

Be sure to show us the screened porch when it is finished. I bet it gets as much use as any room in the house when done.

The shelf looks great. Like the plates too!. I love that plummy gray color. Wish I could have such a color on my house but it has a green roof! Hardest color to come up with a pleasing palette!

I like it! You find some great treasures in your curbside shopping. I never see anything around here.

Love this. You've taken something people do indoors and moved it into a new environment. It is perfect and a great surprise.

Thanks a zillion dear Flowerlady,

Growing up near the beach, I do love seashells but have never seen any like yours. They are just lovely.

A wonderful tribute to the shells. Curb side shopping; you cracked me up with that one. I see these type shelf’s often when at the Goodwill store. I never thought of using one outside…

God blesses you with some fun finds! I love your shelf and the arrangements. I like that photo of your reflection and your pretties on the other shelf, too.

I love seashells, too. They don't grow naturally here, but they're fossilized in our limestone rocks, so I feel good about using shells from the beach as decors.

A nice display. It is fun to collect shells especially if you don't get to see the sea that often.
