Size, Shape, Color

Isn't this exquisite? Think of the hours required to pick out and artfully arrange the perfect size, shape and color shells to make this perfect sailor's valentine.

I found this piece in a shop in Florida and nervously wrapped and layered it within the clothes in my suitcase to bring it home. It made it with nary a shell chipped, thank heaven. 

I have it on display on a black coffee table between two white duck loveseats. It is a show-stopper and it sure to spark conversation. 

I just love it and again, I tell you, art is everywhere.

Very sweet and a rare jewel, especially since I heard from a Florida friend that shells are scarce these days.
