Seashells Galore!!

For some reason I have formed a new obsession... seashells!  You will soon learn that I have many obsessions however something this specific usually only comes in the form of OWLS for me.  Yes, I said it.  I have an owl obsession.  It isn't narrowed down to jewelry, it comes in all forms.  Home decor, apparel, stationary, bedding, I mean seriously throw an owl on something and I'm probably going to love it.  Which brings me to your next questions... yes I am a Chi O. 

However, this post isn't about Owls.  Since that obsession will be around for the rest of my lifetime I will have plenty of time to bore you with them.  I am focusing this post on Seashells.  I'm not sure how it started.  I'm sure it formed from my nautical style and love of east coast shabby chic beach decorating. Whatever the reason it's getting out of control.  First of all... this piece of AMAZING jewelry will be in my possession tomorrow morning, and will be worn with every summer dress I own.  A friend of mine owns the jewelry line M Elizabeth Designs and most of her pieces I fall in love with immediately.  However I haven't had this reaction to a gorgeous piece of jewelry since ... well since I have a giant lack of diamonds in my life possibly never.  It's not even on her website yet but join her facebook page here or check out her website for your own magical piece of heaven. 

The next, it may come as no surprise is in the form of an owl.  Yes I said it... try to control yourselves. At a store in Norman, Oklahoma called Antique Garden I found the most amazing thing I've seen this year.  Antique Garden is one of those amazing stores where you can ALWAYS find a treasure, mine usually come in the form of owls but they have adorable quirky home decor pieces and cute affordable apparel.  Anyway, I was looking for a wedding gift for a friend while browsing around and ran into this little lady.  I then found out she was one of a kind and only $19!! My reaction exactly!! SHUT UP! Isn't he the cutest thing you've ever seen? I wish the picture did the little guy justice....

The rest are a little random and not as close to my heart.  This one is in my bathroom, the seashell is from Urban Outfitters about 2 years ago.

notice inside the vase next to the adorable owl... they are taking over!
