Dear Chicago House,
During my brief stint away from you a couple of weeks ago I amassed a fine collection of beautiful shells.
After a quick soak in some not too bleachy water, a couple of hours in the sunshine to dry and and a then spray with polyurethane, they were ready for some decorating action… but nothing to fussy… simple is best.
A glass jar, filled with a layer of Florida sand and topped with some of the best of my hoard and I am happy. Here they are with the rope balls I made last week
I have plans for this beachy recreation in your St Louis sibling house…
I’ll be sharing a beachy room makeover later this week.
Creative in Chicago
P.S if you ever bring a bag of sand through airport security be prepared to be pulled over and have your sand tested!
