Combined with a bit of play sand, shells look right at home in a glass vase.  A mini seascape, if you will.
A seashells neutral palette pairs up nicely with old ironstone pottery. 
Old bottles are a natural companion with shells.  Either top one off or fill one up with a vintage-inspired handwritten note tag.  Youll have your very own message on a bottle.    
This is where I keep much of my shell decor.  Below are shelves with cabinet doors so I can keep the bulk of my stash hidden until needed.  
Piled on top of an old platter, shells are gorgeously displayed at an outside gathering. 
Use a larger shell to hold your favorite photos.  Looks like Ellies saying cheese. 
The old standby shell soap holder works every time! 
Dont change this shell decor!  I love it too much! 
Now weight a minute!  A scale with coral??  Yep!  It works. 
I gather extra shells in an old bicycle basket atop my cabinet.  Lets see how much I can fill er up!

I haven't been to an oceanside beach in over twelve years.  I know, I know...woe is me. :(  But that wouldn't stop me from including a little bit of seaside decor throughout my home.  Shells can be purchased inexpensively in large quantities at thrift stores, garage sales, fleamarkets and auctions.  I've even seen them free on Craigslist!
