Shell Chic

I was browsing Poppytalk this morning and spotted some inspiring illustrated pages of seashell crafts, scanned from a vintage French book. It brought to mind Shell Chic, full of gorgeous photography, design ideas, and instructions for creating all kinds of projects, including shell chandeliers, keepsake boxes, mirrors, birdbaths, a folding screen . . . even a shell-encrusted claw-foot bathtub, my personal favorite.

Here's a slide show of some images from the book to further fuel your inspiration!

Thanks Karen! I think a trip to the shore is in order to collect supplies.
