Candle light and Clam Shells

Seems like I am a million miles away from the ocean, but when I found these sea shells at the GW, I had to have them because they reminded me of times spent at the usually rainy, but magically wonderful Oregon coast. 

The shells and I have played "beach cottage" here at the Coop for over a month now.  Stacked on a shabby wooden shelf once the Christmas decorations were put away, holding soaps in the bathroom on a tiny bamboo folding stool by the tub, and finally as
candle holders. 

Time to get serious and list them on Etsy, so I did. 

And oh, la, la don't they just say, Romance!

Romance, or uh, clam chowder... 
You see living alone does that to a gal like me.
Well, However you see them,
and have a great night.

Oh, and did I tell you that I won the apron giveaway!
A big "thank you" goes out to Abigail's in Pocatello. 
I can't wait to meet you.
