I've been collecting seashells for as long as I can remember. From east to west, coast to coast, and shore to shore, I always find a treasure to keep, and adore.

All That Glitters is Not Gold

 It's Silver and Blue!

I've been crafting some new Christmas decor that suits my Christmas color scheme better than all of my old red and green items. Some of my old things have sentimental value, but I left them in their boxes this year.

When I say crafting I really mean putting together. There isn't anything extensive in my decor items, just simple and easy.

I subscribe online to Better Homes and Gardens, and after browsing some decor pages last week I knew I needed something twiggy. Twiggy is in!
East coast meets west coast. Shells and pinecones I have collected look very cool and Christmasy together.
Just for fun, lets see this shot at night, with my lights on...
The walls look very tangerine in different lighting!
I must have deleted the other pics of this table due to bad picture quality....I'll take more and post with more decor because I made a cool candle with jewel box shells...and it sits in front of my mer-couple. You know...my mermaid and merman statue! The statue was actually a gift for hubby for our 27th anniversary a few years ago, so technically it's his statue!

Diane sent me a link a few days ago, and it had a twig centerpiece! It was a little different than mine, and had shells hanging from the branches. It was really pretty and beachy, too! If I had only taken my pics and posted sooner!!!
If the glittery balls weren't in there, I'd take the bow off and keep this out year round! This is my favorite project this season.

What is your favorite Christmas decoration?

See you tomorrow!

Oh, I love your beachy, twiggy decor, it looks perfect!

I also love your coastal tree, complete with boxer and all. I believe he fits perfectly, because I love watching dogs romp in the sea.

Nice to see Kim guesting here, she is such a doll.

Glad to be back with my blogging friends, finally!

Hugs to you and your, may you all have a joyous holiday!

I love the blue colors with the shells. It definitely has "I'm at the beach and enjoy christmas" vibe. And glitter! I'm all about glitter this year.
