More Beautiful Shells

Cup and Saucer Keyhole Limpet
South African Turban
Here are some interesting shells
and like my previous shell posts,
their names just go along with the
way they look!


  1. Hi Betsy, I've been lurking about your blog this evening, I think I've been here once before.

    Great Blog, and thanks for visiting me yesterday I think.


  2. The little slipper is so dainty and sweet. I love the cup and saucer too, thank you for bringing the beauty of shells to light. I have never really thought much about them, or had an interest at all. Now, I see the uniqueness of shells and see them as a work of art.

  3. Hi Knitting ~ thanks for the visit!

  4. Kim ~ shells are so neat! I love the slipper, too. And the cup and saucer looks just like one of those vintage luncheon sets! :)

  5. Beautiful shells! Love the slipper one. :)

  6. Their names most certainly do, in a rather remarkable way.....I think the turbans are my favourite; all those colours. As for the slipper..hmmmm...I would definitely peg it as a 'ladyslipper'...teehee

  7. I used to have a Keyhole Limpet but didn't know its name.

    I love shells. Our family collects them from all the beaches we visit, from Florida to Oregon, England and Belgium to Italy. They're all mixed up and we don't know where we got any one of them, though!

    I love your informative posts. I was just mulling the one about Faeries a few days ago while I was doing the dishes!

    Thank you also for the glimpse into your sons' lives. It's informative about an issue I would otherwise know little to nothing about. I found the ketchup bottle post very interesting. It IS upside down--- just hard to explain that it's supposed to be that way!

    God bless you!


  8. Lavinia ~ yes the turbans are beautiful! They seem fancy and almost guady in their pearlized trim and bright colors.

  9. Reece ~ I have several keyhold limpets and didn't know the name! I always called them volcanoes! LOL

  10. I love the names of these shells --so descriptive!

  11. Wow. I do visit and I do comment and I was here. I did look at your picture(s) and I did read what you wrote about them. I could say how great you are and how beautiful your work is but alas I would soon run out of things to say on the next blog I visited, so I just left this to prove I stopped and said a few words on Sunday.

  12. I love how the "Cup and Saucer" is so organic in shape. Very elegant!
