Thanks and Inspiration

I don't know if anyone pays attention to details like how my blog recently got a makeover, but I wanted to thank Linda at  
Life with Linda
  for her help (once again)! She's been so generous over the last 2 years since I started blogging.  I get around pretty good with my blogging, but there are some aspects of it that are above my head and I'm so grateful to have her assistance! 

Thank-you again Linda!


While visiting the One King's Lane web-site I was intrigued with these shell embellished items and copied their pictures for inspiration!  I thought I'd share them with you since I know so many of you are good at crafting and might be inspired by these too!
 This is a fun way to take a picnic basket 
over the top!
I'd be using it as an accent!

 I like the way they used the two shells in the center of this box, almost like a handle!  
These are by someone called Karen Robertson
This was another design that I liked.  They wanted $149 for it.... (suggested retail $295)?? huh??  to pricey for my blood

I'd like to embellish something to be in my nautical room.  I see sea shells at all the craft stores and I have a bunch of my own.  Now I have to decide on what I can use!  

A quick cell phone picture of my nautical room....I will have to take better pictures and show the room in another post!
I'm linking up with 2805 for

  1. Linda is so sweet! Your blog looks fantastic.... :D

  2. That is a sweet shout out to Linda. Between the two of you last week, you got Vernice on the straight & narrow with her blog. That was SO appreciated!!! I do love the wallpaper for your blog and would love to have that as a fabric for drapes in the eat-in area of our kitchen!!! Can't wait to see what you create with your seashells. I know it'll be a knockout! Your creativity has been seeping out faster than the Missouri river runs!!!

  3. Liz, I LOVE shells! Did you see the things Paula Deen embellishes with shells? Ron, at The Uptown Acorn decorated a garden bust and it looks fabulous. What are you thinking of embellishing?


Thank you for your comments! I don’t always get a chance to reply but I do read them!


Welcome to Home and Gardening With Liz. I have combined my previous blogs “Infuse With Liz” and “Sit With Me In My Garden” into this new blog. I love interior decorating and gardening. I enjoy redefining interior spaces by moving things around and reusing decorative items already found in the home. I also enjoy creating tablescapes and an occasional crafting project. I'm so pleased you've stopped by. I invite you to follow me and I do hope you will keep coming back! Liz
