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?

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 :)
