Everyday Beaching!

It's no secret that I love shells and anything beach related. I wanted to show you my collection of shell shaped serving pieces. The pictures didn't turn out very well but they are all blue and cream colored and have embossed shell images on each piece. The thing I love about them the most is that each piece is microwave, freezer, and oven proof! I use them so often in the summer months I don't even bother putting them away. I just leave them out on my hutch and bakers rack. I use a theme related centerpiece when I use the serving pieces. I use a large round glass cylinder container and a blue candle with shells embedded inside. Then I surround the candle with shells I've collected myself and mix in a few glass marbles and disks. I put the cylinder on a plate with shells embossed on it. It looks very pretty at night when the light shines through the shells and marbles.

An interesting collection. I have made a centerpiece similar to the one you described. I need to get it out now that summer is almost here.
