Shell Centerpiece {Porch Projects}

To wrap up my week long porch projects palooza, I’m back with the details on my shell centerpiece.  Sister lucked out with two of these giant hand painted plaster clam shells and was a complete doll to give one to little old me!!  I’ve been sitting on it for a couple of months, along with a small lot of antique fishing floats and threw them together as a last minute centerpiece for our Independence Day fete.  Well, I fell in love with it and think it will grace the porch table from here on out!

Au revoir,
