Sea shells

on early morning walks on the beach, I collect big clam shells and small scallop shells, which are treasures found on the Atlantic Ocean beaches on Long Island, and take them home and press them into service as beautiful objects, soap dishes, salt and pepper cellars, candle holders...
we found a treasure trove of  Irish Sea scallop shells that are perfect for the above as well as their traditional use as serving pieces for Coquilles St. Jacques...we are selling them 6/$15 and use them not only for the table but for organizing desk supplies!

pot scrubbers

We love  English garden shed tools and accessories, and  this pot scrubber is a new favorite staple.  Especially now, when it's time to pot up herbs and flowering bulbs for the season. A good brush out of any old dirt keeps pots fresh. After brushing out, soaking in a warm water and white vinegar solution and then wiping out with a soft cloth will keep your clay pots clean and free from any pesty things.  Made of coir bristles with a wood handle, it is $12 at our online store,     photograph by marili forastieri
