The Starfish Trading Company was created out of a response to the coastal décor featured on Kristy Seibert’s amazing coastal blog. This Etsy shop features a variety of coastal style home decor items such as artwork, photo frames, chalkboards, placemats, napkin rings, vases, bulk starfish, and seashells as well as candles, jewelry and other gifts. Many of the items listed are also perfect for a coastal wedding or event.
Kristy shares, “I draw inspiration and find beauty in simple seaside treasures like starfish, seashells and sand dollars, it is my hope that these items will bring the beauty and joy of the seaside to your home, wherever you may live!”
Guess what? Kristy is going to give one lucky winner a set of four Starfish Napkin Rings!!
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?
See some other ways i’ve used vintage printers trays….here & here & here
I stumbled upon Carolyn Cochrane’s Etsy shop yesterday during my usual quest for “beach” and fell in love with her photography. Her shots capture the mood of the beach so perfectly and the colors are so magnificent, I couldn’t resist showing them to you this morning:
I think a series of three would look so pretty hanging on a wall, or a BIG one framed and hung over a mantle :)
The Shell is cast in stone with a hand-painted faux mother of pearl finish. The 38″ long seashell sits in a wrought iron stand that possesses a beautiful antique bronze finish. The seashell is not removable.
This piece of coastal art will be a real showstopper in your beach home….wherever you place it, indoors or out!
