What The Heck Is It?

Once upon a time, I bought several oval frames from Tender Heart
Treasures...because they were $ 1.95 each...

naturally, ;} they were purchased expressly to be painted...since I
am just not blue. And since I didn't really plan on using them as "frames"
either {go figure!} I was left with these frame backs....can't just throw them
away can I? There has to be something...something...hmmmm....

Well, when in doubt...my "go to" is usually shells!

So, I painted & glued...

And come up with a weird sort of piece of "art"...just one more way to
display some sea pretties...sometimes a bowl full of shells is just boring! ;}

Just a few more days to enter our latest GIVE AWAY !

  1. just darling my friend...you come up with the best ideas girls...thats why I love to come by here....hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

  2. That is just beautiful, what a great idea your shell things are always so pretty. Do you use special paint for your items or is it just household paint.

  3. Creative and adorable -as always!!

  4. Always thinking up something new! So white and crisp.

  12. what a good idea...good thing you didn't throw the backing away. sometimes its hard to decide-save something to use later or try to keep my house uncluttered.
