Seaside Treasures

As you may have gathered I am a bit of a beachcomber …. and when I come home I like to have the things I’ve found around me as a reminder not only of the lovely places I’ve been …. and also that there will be many happy holidays to come.

These vases are on the glass shelves in my shower room, which is completely white except for a bit of chrome in the shower.

All the small stones are from my favourite beach in Devon to which I’ve added bits of driftwood, shells, holey stones and dried seaweedy stuff, plus a few other bits I love like delicate glass balls, that remind me of bubbles, and old I Ching coins and thimbles for lost treasures …… I’m such an old romantic …….

I’ve cheated with the star fish though, I’d never be so lucky as to find anything so beautiful and perfect on any beach I might comb, they were a present from my sister and I just love them.
