My mom and I have both collected seashells for as long as I can remember, always bringing home one or two from a week on Nantucket or a trip to see Grandy in Florida. When we were growing up, my mom would display shells in clear hurricanes, sometimes surrounding a pillar candle and other times on their own. In our previous rental, I filled a clear lamp with seashells and displayed it on the desk where I worked. And today I’m sharing one other simple idea for displaying shells at home: in a pretty silver bowl on top of a stack of books.
In a perfect world, I’d keep this bowl of shells and stack of books on the upholstered ottoman in our living room, but with Peter very much on the move and eager to put many things in his mouth, it’s usually on top of the dresser on the far side of the room. I love that it’s a slightly elevated way to showcase a simple collection. I’d love to hear how you display shells in your home!
