Mrs. Fixit: Seashells

If you have a bunch of seashells but you just use them for display, pull them out. I have some ideas to put them to use around the house.

The first step, wash those shells well in hot soapy water.

Once they're clean, try a couple of seashells on your table top. You could use them as little salt servers at each place or a sugar dish in the center.

You could also use a seashell as a candy dish for small candies.

If you have a vase that's too tall for your flowers, fill the bottom with seashells. It will raise the level of the bottom of the vase and add a pretty touch to the display.

Put a seashell in the bathroom to use as a soaph dish.

You could use a couple of seashells on your dresser or vanity to hold jewelry, spare change or hair accessories.

The next time you're ont he beach you won't be able to walk past those shells. They're great for helping out around the house. I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple!
