I like your shell collection Susan! I am amazed that you bought almost every one at a yard sale. You always find such nice things in your neighborhood sales. They all look so pretty in that bookcase and next to your hammered aluminum.

The drying Celosia is such a pretty scarlet color!

Is that a big bucket of pussy willows?...I love pussy willow....bayberry...bittersweet...all things that haven't been seen in the South...Ever....that is another thing I miss about Jersey...can't say I have seen hydranga here either...


Happy Pink Saturday!! Beautiful flowers!!

That is such a pretty display Susan. I love the patina of your old bookcase. It goes perfectly with your shells!


Susan, I love that bookcase and see why you snatched it up so quickly. I hope that you are enjoying this lovely, cloudy day!

I love it! I accidentally left my yellow lunch box full of sand and shells at home. :|


Your cockscomb is just wonderful. I have never seen that growing. You have a great collection of shells too. So fun to bring the outdoors inside.

Slow is good. Certainly no reason to rush time! I am loving the more natural look more and more lately. And the idea of beauty "left over" like dried flowers.


My eyes immediately jumped to the hammered aluminum piece. I love those. In fact I talk about aluminum pieces in my PS post. Thanks for sharing. The shells are beautiful.

First of all, I'm totally impressed that's a Jersey Shore conch! :-) Anbd I loveeee the shell display. I'm always afraid of having a house at the shore and going overboard with the whole sea shell thing...but I'd fill my house with them if I could find a haul like yours at yard sales!! The AP farm market also had tons of cockscomb this year...it must be drought tolerant or something.


G'day Susan ~ Often wondered what that as called ... cockscomb! Interesting. Lovely seashells.
Have a lovely week.

Great shell collection. I love the idea of drying Celosia ... I've never tried that!


I love the hydrangia in the silver bucket! AND the sea shell collection. Beautiful pictures!
Patricia :o)


Very pretty hydrangea and cockscomb! and your seashells are just lovely! Enjoyed your mosaic!


Wonderful *natural* post! Enjoyed everything about it ... the flowers, the shells, using natural ingredients to decorate with. Well done!


Cockscombs are lovely. Pics are grand!

Your shells are gorgeous!!! I love the flowers too. I'm waiting a bit longer to cut my Hydrangeas, they look so pretty on the bushes I can't bare to cut them yet, but they will be nice to have inside this Winter.


What a lovelyl display of natural beauty! Thanks for sharing at MM. :)


What a nice post! Love the cockscomb and I grew that when I lived in New Mexico! Nice memories! Your shells are so nice in the bookshelf.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)


It's a lovely way to decorate. I'd just add a few subtle autumnal touches and stick with these wonderful natural items. Very nice!


Susan-I can't believe your daughter found that conch shell!! What a find! Your hyndranges are beautiful. I have never been able to preserve a blue one. I love its vase too!

Sweet Bee

All your flowers are so beautiful!


Beautiful shell collection and I like your dried flowers!...Christine


I love to collect shells too - I use them in the garden and on the table in the summertime.

I just put
the seashells
away, last week...
Hate to see them
go...But I do
love autumn and
all of her coziness
and splendor in
the house! You've
got a wonderful
collection of shells : )

Lovely selection of shells. Very tasteful.


Very pretty.
It is the same with me...no fall decorations for another week or so. It's still in the 90's around here so my mind is FAR from fall decorating.


I'm slow in decorating for Autumn too, Susan. I really like my blues more.

Happy Blue Monday! Check out my book giveaway.


Natural beauty is always beautiful. Your collections are gorgeous!
Blue jars


Happy Blue Monday!

Make it a great week! La


I am slow with Fall too. Love your Blue Monday. Come see me.


I love the shells. We live in the mountains but both Hubby and I love the oceanside. Just couldn't afford it.....lol.....


You have a wonderful shell collection. I just starting collecting shells. My last ones were from Chincoteague, VA.


Beautiful shells and flowers! Happy Blue Monday ;)

Cherry Kay

I enjoy seeing your shell collection. I adore shells, but they are not so readily available here on the prairie. I'll look more closely at garage and estate sales...thanks for the suggestion and for sharing your lovely treasures. Cherry Kay


Beautiful photos! Love cockscombs and hydrangeas also. For some reason, ours didn't have many blooms this summer. The shells are very pretty!
