A Fun Collectible...Decorative Shell Boxes...and a Winner!

This week I found two decorative shell boxes at the thrift store!  
I have a small collection of these, 
so new additions are always a fun find for me! 
I love the decoration on this heart-shaped box...


I found this box with decorative feet, too.  
I had to replace several missing shells...


I never pass up a box because of damage...a little E-6000 glue and some spare seashells (I always pick them up at the thrift store or garage sales when I see them) and the boxes are good as new!

My collection was inspired by a box 
that belonged to my husband's grandmother...


There are many shapes and sizes and they 
can be found very inexpensively.


I love the different patterns...







Have decorative shell boxes found their way into your home?
