Check out this simple idea. Shadow boxes chuck full with beach rocks and shells!

I love how Tracy of Trinkets and Treasures filled up her Beach Rocks and Shadow Boxes with Rocks and Shells. For the rocks, she painted and distressed an existing shadow box frame to make it look antique.

The story: "I have a wonderful friend that has a home in Long Island, New York. I mentioned that I liked the rocks from the movie Something’s Gotta Give where Diane Keaton collects the white rocks off the beach, but never the black ones. I loved the look of the rocks so she sent me some."

Then to display her collection of shells found in Florida, Tracy picked a shadow box from Hobby Lobby. And there's a shark’s tooth in there too!

They look awesome free standing and on frame holders!
