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 Fan Pulls

Have I told you how GOOD it feels to be creating again? If I haven't...it DOES!

I had some big shells leftover from other projects, and had ordered the supplies for more fan pulls. I wanted these to be a little different than the last one's I made, so I added ocean themed charms :)

This was the easiest to photograph. The starfish charm stayed where it should while laying down.

The others...well not so much.

They are perfect while hanging though.

Each one has a different charm.

It's really hard to pick a fave! I like them ALL!

The pointy shells are Tibia, and come from the Indian Ocean, and the Indo-Pacific region. They are a member of the conch family. I love the conch family :D

The flat shell you know is a flat scallop...an Irish Flat Scallop to be precise. I think they are so pretty!

A nice addition for beachy, coastal, and tropical decor!

We have a ceiling fan in nearly every room in the house, and 2 in the screen room. The only rooms without one are the kitchen and dining room. My living room ceiling fan doesn't have pull chains :O
It's operated by remote control....and a friendly ghost sometimes : )

How many ceiling fans do you have?

You clever girl! I love the fan pulls. We have 3 ceiling fans at the lake house....so I'll have to go nose around your shop.

...Thank you for promoting me on your blog! I'll have to figure out how to do that on mine.

Those are great! I love the seahorse!

We have ceiling fans in all our rooms. They really help with the energy bills. In the family room, they turned reversed in the winter to help circulate the heat from the wood stove.

No c ceiling fans :( Then again, unless the conditions are just so, the moving air often irritates my eyes and causes migraines. That being said, when we purchase a house that is one of the things I want to have.

Such a great idea! I love the charms against the shells too. You are the most creative person when it comes to shells. I love it. :)

This is a brilliant idea! And I love how you have paired them with the little charms.

Lets see....how many ceiling fans do I have? I now have 4. One in the garage, the bedroom, the living room, and the dining room. We had one in my sewing room but I swapped it out for those killer lights!
