I am joining the Beach Party at The Shabby Chic Cottage today. I don't have alot to post because my house isn't really beachy although I REALLY wish it was but this is something I whipped up the other day before company came into town. We were headed on the lake for a sunset 'dinner' more like appetizers cruise and sightings of Purple Martin birds (another post coming about that, and pictures so be sure to come back).
So, this is what I whipped up basically for nothing.
I had the middle container-a large Margarita glass and it had these shells already in it, in my cabinet. The shells were from a beach trip several years ago but since my house isn't really 'beachy' they've been stored. *sigh*.
The other two containers are leftover, washed, and 'delabled' spaghetti sauce jars! Yup, you heard that right! I am a NUT for containers of any sort and hate throwing them out, so when I made some spaghetti the other day, I thought...hmmmmm.
I filled them with more shells from various beach trips (I'm also a nut, and separate the shells by the trips/years we found them. So, from left to right, trips '07, '06, and '09--can't find '08-oops.
The 'raffia' is actually made of plastic and came off of a package of something I bought at HLobby! Add some votives and Viola!
