The Giant Clam Shell...

While shopping at the Antique Mart a few weeks back I noticed a giant clam shell.
Now, I can walk away from a lot of things, but this had staying power. It stayed on my mind 24/7. 
I went back to look at it once. You know, to say hi. I still kept thinking about it.
Long story short, it's now mine.
Not so fast...
It's on lay-a-way. Who puts a giant clam shell on lay-a-way???

I have so many things I want to do with my
new best friend.

We can take a shower.

Ali Wentworth. Check out the fireplace with the giant clam shell. Cool

Sit by the fire! Or better yet, in the fire.

Love the giant clam shell, the colors, the plants, the rug, the wood ceiling, and the little stools.

We can add some orchids and be the center of attention.

  2. I love giant clam shells, my friend who has a beach house took a photo of her newborn baby in a clam shell it was precious!

  3. This is so weird. But I've been looking for a giant clam shell ever since I saw one overflowing with succulents. What a great find. And yes, I'm not surprised you put it on layaway because they are so pricey. :)

    1. hahaha i wondered if anyone would catch that! From what I understand I got a great price, but stil....$$$$.

  4. Sharon, these large shells are so unique and I love the idea of putting it in the fireplace in the spring and summer! Great find!
