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.

New Seashell Headbands

Oh Happy Friday!

Thank you all so much for the well wishes, and feel betters!!! I am on the mend, and even went uptown yesterday. My knee is sore to the touch, and to the 'lean' (as in a dog leaning on it!) and my bruises are bright, but I am thankful it wasn't worse!

I bought these pretty wine color scallop shells from the shell shop in Treasure Island, FL. The little shop that is just south from Belleair Beach. They were actually the first shells I picked out when I walked in the door. The color is so vibrant I couldn't pass them up! They have sat unused because they are a big shell, and the curve is wrong for a barrette. I just got some new headbands, and the curve is right for them!

Isn't that a pretty shell?!

This one has wonderful color for fall, and is a nice feminine hair accessory.

The next one is a bit dressier, and would be so pretty for a fall beach wedding, for the bridesmaid or flower girl.

The flowers couldn't have matched better if I had picked them out just for these shells. They just happened to be left over from another project.

I may have to start wearing headbands again!

Unfortunately I only bought two of those shells to try them out :(
And that was the last of those flowers, too.

Do these make you think of beach weddings? Or wish you wore headbands, too?!

Have a great weekend, and I'll see ya on Monday!

the headband is so cute! I would wear it if headbands didn't a. stuck in my curls or b. broken in my curls.
