    shell games

    “one cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach.”
    – anne morrow lindbergh

    {via elizabeth messina}

    hello friends,

    during last week’s shopping extravaganza {all for work, of course}, i was falling in love with everything in the home section of anthropologie when i saw it.

    what did i see, you ask?
    only the most amazing coffee book ever!
    antoine joseph dezallier d’argenville’s “conchology & shells” book is an exquisite collection of illustrations of these creatures of the sea. brilliant colors and intricate drawings give this coffee table gem the same feeling of the famous {and my favorite} deyrolle prints. 

    i love it so much. who knows? it may be a guest piece at our beach wedding as well!

    friends, what are your favorite coffee table books this season?
