Pink Antique Sand

When I was in Michael's the other day, I discovered their new Ashland Collection "Modern Parisian". I absolutely loved it, but especially loved the "Pink Antique Sand"!  I knew it would look so pretty with some of my seashells! 
I have an iron bird bath in our downstairs bathroom filled with sand and seashells, but thought the pink sparkly sand would look so much better! However, I really didn't want to pay $4.99 for a little bag of sand, but fortunately I had a 50% off coupon!
 It's so pretty and sparkly! 
 I put the rest of the pink sand in a little glass jar and filled it with some more seashells! Now, I'm longing for the beach in the middle of winter!

I'm linking to What's It Wednesday at Ivy and Elephants!

Just came across your blog when I was searching for "curtains made from drop cloths". Anyway, love your blog! The pink sand looks very pretty. I will have to get over to Micheal's... That iron bird bath is gorgeous!

Janet I just love this! What a fabulous idea to use the birdbath for the shells.
The pink sand is perfect!
I'd love to have you link it to WIW and share your great idea!

The pink sand looks so pretty with your sea shells. You gotta love Michaels and their coupons. I go there at least every couple weeks. That mirror in your bathroom is so unique and beautiful. I hope you are having a fun weekend.

Oh, I love the pink sand. Your idea of using a birdbath for the sand and shells in your bathroom is awesome. I'm going to check into that pink sand and the heart shaped shell is great. I'm ready for the beach too.
Joyous Wishes, Linda
