Fabulous shadow boxes full of beach treasures.

I love the first one.
You've given me a splendid idea.
I am always collecting stones, rocks, and shells from my travels. What a great way to display them.

Posters? Really? How fun, & less dusting :-)

This is a great idea for my beach cottage bedroom makeover.

so cute and so simple. i think i need to put one of these in my office at work.

Jenni said...

How flattered I am! Love the posters, too (and your site) is quite true, a poster would mean less dusting, and less treasures coming unglued and falling to the floor...grr...

I have a huge shadow box which is slowly getting filled. It takes forever to find the right pieces!

I've seen other printer box displays, but I prefer the last two options with the white box. Hmmmm - wonder where I could get a box like that?

Kelly said...

Those last two are posters?! WOW!!! They look so real!!

Jenny's shell display in the typesetter's drawer is great. It does require more dusting than a poster, but it's fun to pull a collection of memories together to create a personal piece of art :-)

I have one of those compartment CD holders that were popular at Pottery Barn years ago for CDs. I'm kind of growing tired of seeing all of my CDs out and about (but I'm still a touchy-feely girl who can't go all digital :-) I'd love to do something like this with the CD holder. Fun!
