Sea Shells and Lavender Bells

There's a third color of Canterbury Bells--Lavender. I'm lovin' these new flowers in my garden. This one fell over, most likely in one of our many wind storms.
On one of my trips to Denver, I found this 3 tierd shelf. Don't know what it's really for, but it was cheap, so it came home with me.
Had a box of 100 sea shells from a former student so decided to put them outside for the summer.
When I taught First Grade we celebrated the 100th Day of school by bringing in collections. Amber brought this magnificent set of shells for the kids to see.
Her mom said they were going to throw them away! She asked if I wanted them-what teacher in her right mind would say no??!!
I ♥ them!!!
I'm sure they came right from the beach and have a soft chalky feel. Lucky me!
