Copy Cat Design

I'm always amazed by the creativity of the bloggers I follow.    I regularly check in on New Orleans blogger, Ron, at Uptown Acorn for some design inspiration.  When I saw what he did in his foyer with turtle shells and orbs I immediately told him that I was stealing his idea.

Shells in Jar  at Uptown Acorn

  I loved how the apothecary jars gathered the shells and stacked and balanced them.

Recently I found some small bleached shells.

Originally I tucked them in with the other sea shells and coral in my faux clam shell.

  Since they're so fragile, I thought that Ron's clever idea was a better solution.

I placed some sea glass in the bottom of a glass cylinder.
 I let the shells tumble and climb upon themselves.

Do you display your treasures under glass?

Thanks Ron.
