Pottery Barn Has Nothing on Me & You!

I love Pottery Barn. My heart swoons over the catalogs. Luurrvvvee it! I just don't love their prices. When I received a catalog a couple of months ago showing various shells in vases, I quickly thought, "Hey, I can do that!" I already have shells on hand. Below is the Pottery Barn picture from the catalog {one of them, not my inspirational one :(}...

And here are the 3 vases I created. My apologies in advance for the 3rd photo not turning out so well...

Pin It

Do you have a collection of shells lying around? Get creative and put them on display this summer. I'm thinking a vase of pretty seaglass would be nice or a vase filled with sand and the sand dollars I collected this summer. I want to be careful with the sand dollars as they are oh-so delicate and will crumble. Whatever your taste, whatever natural items you have (rocks, pinecones, etc.) put it in a vase and display your collection. Not sure what to do? If you do not have a PB catalog, log onto their website for inspiration and get those creative juices flowing. I'd love to know what you like to collect and display!

As always, keep it simple, keep it fabulous, and keep it creative!
