Sea Shells & Sea Glass

Just wanted to share a start to my Summer Decor. I found some pretty aqua & blues sea glass and also purchased a package of sea shells. As I packed up my Easter decor, I simply layered the bottom of my large glass jar with the glass and then arranged the sea shells on top of the glass. I think it looks pretty, even though it's not beach weather yet :o) I purchased two packages of the sea glass & one of the sea shells. They were very inexpensive, I bought mine at a local shop but I know decor items like these are available in many stores.

Another idea is rather than using sea glass, you could layer the shells on top of fine sand. That would look nice as well. You could fill one large jar like I did or you could use many different sized jars with different combinations. Either way, it's a simple and charming way to bring the beach & a Summer feeling into your home, especially if your like me and don;t get to the beach very often.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! Please visit me again soon, @}~~ Sarah
