Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

Having grown up in CA, I have collected and searched for seashells most of my life. If we ever go near the beach, you will find me poking thru the sand looking for these little gifts of the heart.
Now that I have more than I can possibly display: what do I do with these little gems? I decided to create some perfume bottles to sell on my website, someplaceinthyme using what else? my shells.

Now to be perfectly honest with you, I bought the pretty bottles with the shells already on the toppers. All the rest are from my collection. I added vintage and new laces, ribbons and blooms. I think I may have found a new passion. Altho I have shells that I can not part with and enjoy still today, I think I will offer many more projects to my friends.
I gave the front of this tall bottle a sweet seahorse. If you have a beach theme in the bedroom or bath, these would be perfect. I have one that I kept for myself and I filled it with tiny shells. It's perfect. Just think how pretty they would be filled with rose petals or lavender buds. Of course, you could leave them empty or fill with bath oil......Oooooh La La

So chic and just so beautiful too.
