Basildon Park - Shell Room

I have shared a post about the Shell Room at Basildon Park before, but I have taken some more photos and found some others that I had lurking waiting for attention, so I thought you might like them!

  1. Wow, it's absolutely breathtaking. All of those different shapes and colours. I love the big exhibits, they are fantastic. Imagine how amazed people must have been to see it when it was originally created. CJ xx

  4. Oh Amy, these are really lovely, especially the last one. I also like the shells with a cameo engraved into them. When I was in Florence I looked at many of these, but could never decide on one to buy! Basildon Park really is a great place. xxx

  10. Hi Amy, I just popped by to say thank you for your kind words. I have been coming by to read your many posts - you're so prolific! - but haven't felt up to commenting. That said, we are both doing fine and getting into the new routine. I still worry but, like you, I'm a natural worrier anyway! x

  16. What fabulous shells and shell-work. I have seen the interior of the shell gallery at A la Ronde, but the shell room as Basildon is something else!

  21. Thank you so much for sharing more with us Amy! I find this room to be very magical because when I was a child my grandmother gave us a box of shells from all over the world. Sea shells have always held a special spot in my heart and I just love that they have put them all so beautifully on display here!! Here is to another great week!! Nicole xo
