Clamshell, Take Me Away!

I am going to try this again. My previous White Wednesday post seemed to be nothing new to bloggers out there. Since I have been sick and out of the loop, I guess I missed it. I still love it (Sandra Foster's tiny victorian cottage featured in the NY Times)!! Now let me show you what I bought with the Crate and Barrel gift certificate I won from Angela at The Painted House recently. I always wanted one of these giant clamshells and so I thought I would put it in my bathroom and fill it with handtowels. It reminds me a little of the Four Seasons hotel in Austin. They use baskets, but I just love going in there and seeing all those little towels rolled up. Of course, they have many, many more. Thanks again, Angela, for the giveaway!

Kathleen, I hope you don't mind if I post another entry for White Wednesday at Faded Charm!

I had seen the house. And I was concerned that she spent over $3000, but didn't manage to get some plumbing in there! haha

As for this shell, it's so very wonderful! Love it! ~Mindy

great display with the towels, i too feel that same way about having rolled up towels in the bath, it just feels like a luxury hotel for some reason.
take care

I have large clam shells like that scattered around my garden to hold water for the critters who happen by. Your rolled towels look great in yours!

Oh...how I love this shell! What a great accessory.

I'm so glad you left a comment on my blog so that I could visit yours! I can't wait to explore more--I think we have a few things in common : ). I like what I see so far.

It's so nice to "meet" you.

I love the clam shell! I'm like you in so many ways I think ~ :-) Lots of rolled up towels in the bath feels like a luxury hotel and I feel pampered.

Thanks for sharing!
