Crackle Barrell Treasures

Hello Everyone!  I have shared my story about the seahorse that I fell in love with at Crackle Barrell.  I think I mentioned that I didn't have any idea as to where I was going to put the seahorse once I got it home.  I wanted to have it somewhere that I would be able to see it often because it does make me happy to see it.  Well.....the only place I could come up with is the mantle in the family room.  The only thing with that is it made the whole display off balance.  Rats!!  What's a girl to do?  Hmmm....if that girl is me she went back to Crackle Barrell.................


..............and bought another one...tehee....balance problem SOLVED!!!!  There were a couple of other items that I would really like to have purchased, but I really needed the second seahorse for the mantle.




Sorry these pictures aren't the best - lighting - I hate taking pictures indoors!

I did, if you remember, mention that I had had purchased another beachy item when I made the initial purchase of the first seahorse. I love it as well.  Love it, love it,  no really, I love it..hahaha.


Can you believe that I am finding these wonderfully beachy items at Crackle Barrell?  I mean, I made the purchases and I still can't get over it.  Crackle Barrell!!!!  And it was very reasonable.  It was only $20.  It is the prefect size too.  Not too big and not too small.  It's about 14 inches wide and about 6 inches tall. 



I have seen these on the beachy blogs that I love to follow.  Many of you already had something like this that you were utilizing in your beach displays.  Some of may even have the real thing.  But from the first time that I laid eyes on your photos I have wanted one...really badly.  That is why it is so surprising that I didn't even notice this until after we had eaten and I went back to take my seahorse home with me.  That's how much in love with the horsey I was.  I have priced these shells on websites and they were running in the neighborhood of $80...yikes...for a small one!!  Let me say this again - CRACKER BARRELL and $20, yes $20!!


Don't you just love it - and the coral base...sweeeet!!!!  What to put it in you ask?  Well, after several Sanibel vacations I have no shortage of lovely shells to place in there.  I bought this on a Friday and that evening I got really sick.  It was my Saturday to work ( I work every other Sat from 8:00 -12:00 ).  Needless to say I really didn't want to go in- but it's not fair to call someone out of the blue early on a Sat morning and ask them to work for you.  Just couldn't do it, so I trudged on into the office.  When I made it home my boyfriend had been hitting the neighborhood yard sales and had picked up a teeny something for me.  What, you ask?  Well, let me just show you..............


He knows what little things really make me happy!!


I normally would not buy shells because I love to collect my own right off the beach but I love them if someone else buys them for me.  And these are perfect to go inside my treasure from Cracker Barrell!



Love the colors of these shells inside the white clam shell.



So very pretty and we all know "pretty" makes me happy". LOL


Yep, I am one happy woman!!

 Another thing that makes me happy is visitors and comments.  I will always respond to your comments here and will also make every effort to visit you blog as well.  THANK YOU for stopping by!!

  2. Hi Roxanne! Love your treasures. I agree with Debbie - Cracker Barrel has some cute stuff and usually reasonable prices. My hubby thinks I like to go there for the food (I do!), but I do love the shopping! Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the kind words. Wishing you happiness, Jane

  12. Hi Roxanne!

    I sure miss that store... I never ate there much so I consider it a "gift shop". Your littel seahorse are just adorable and you were lucky to get a second one.

    Thanks for sharing at my party!
