Sea Shell Sorting Ideas – There’s nothing like an antique or vintage printers tray for storing and displaying sea shells or other tiny curiosities.

This weekend, with bella’s assistance, i played around with shells, a bit neglected in wooden bowls & jars all over the place. i love how they look piled into the little wooden sections along with a few other natural finds.

I found this rustic old tray at bondi markets a few years ago. you can find them on ebay and etsy but postage is pretty expensive because of their weight.

bella always likes to get involved & inspect any changes before she gives her approval.   does your cat or dog do that?

About Cheryl Bow of Beachcomber

Located in Sydney, Australia, Cheryl brings her perspective on the coastal lifestyle from an Aussie point of view. “Growing up on the coast, hanging out at the beach, swimming and sailing has instilled in me a love of relaxed beach house style – lots of white , blue and white stripes, weathered, rustic, vintage, recycled, shells and driftwood. most of our home has been furnished and decorated for next to nothing from ebay, side of the road finds and garage sales. ”

    Hi Cheryl. My Mr T (or TC as he’s more commonly known) reminds me of Bella – always sticking his nose (or paws) where he shouldn’t! ;-) I love what you’ve done with the shells, and it’s a great way of keeping your collection together. Cheers, Hx
