One of our favorite things to do at E T C E T E R A S is to create something beautiful out of unexpected pairings. Since La Jolla is a quintessential seaside town, we love mixing treasures from the ocean with traditional christmas decor to create a whimsical holiday feeling. We think using what you already have makes the holidays simple instead of stressful! Gather large ornaments and place them into a giant clam shell, or add some angels to your collection of coral and seashells. To further the idea of whimsical simplicity, hang angels or vintage ornaments from your chandeliers, or put a small christmas tree into a iron urn. Stop by the store to see more of our seaside holiday decor!
We are in absolute awe of our newest addition to our ocean life collection...this giant clamshell is stunning! It is a matching pair and is estimated to be about 300 years old. It measures 36" across and 22" tall. We have no idea what it weighs, only that it took two men to bring it in! We are so enamored of our lovely giant that for now its not for sale...
