I love this!


I am absolutely smitten with my latest thrift store find.


 As shell obsessed as I am, finding something this unique


rates pretty high!


It was my first time to this particular thrift store.


When I brought it up to the counter to pay the $14.99 they had me reach into a jar to pull out a slip of paper for a discount of anywhere from 10% to 50%


It truly was my lucky day as these lovlies ended up costing $7.50!

I'm curious...
has anyone ever seen anything like this before?  Discoveries like this are what make treasure hunting so exciting!!

What a find and what a steal, Therese!

But what will you do with it? Will you fill the seashells with something or leave the sculpture/statue as is?

No, never have seen anything like those. The bottom shell is very interesting. I'm trying to learn to gild shells and glass...You know something else with more equipment and supplies to buy...

That is a crazy price! I am so in love with this item, have never seen anything even close to this before. Show us where you place it in your home...can't wait to see!

Well its a good thing we were not in the same place at the same time...as I think I would have wrestled you to the floor for these as I am also crazed for shells! You have fabulous built in radar for such finds. Seriously, if I can't have this whimsical treasure, I know it will be well loved by you. Enjoy!

Fantastico!!! I have NOT ever seen a piece like these. How wonderful that it sang to you AND was such a bargain. Don't you wonder how it came to reside at the thrift store? Who it sang to before its siren's call beckoned you? And who it did not sing to??? Love it! xx P&H

Therese,

These are just precious. About the lamp...this one was one of a kind but I've seen others like it while shopping there. When I go back I'll try to get pics and prices & send them to you. I'll be returning in about a month. Hope you are having a great weekend.
