        here's the one i bought http://www.ebay.com/...b#ht_2529wt_932 and she also has a 5-6 in one here http://www.ebay.com/...a#ht_2529wt_932

         

        and here on etsy!  http://www.etsy.com/...bered-nautilus?

        thank you so much!! i will post mine once i get it and complete the project :)

              My shell (2nd attempt at the right size) came in the mail yesterday and I want to get the ribbon on today/tonight so pics coming soon!! I'm just so glad this second shell is big enough and exactly what I was looking for. It's so beautiful. My FI said "wow... is it real??" haha I said "Yes!!" and then I was like "....I'm pretty sure..." lol. It's just so smooth and pretty. I didn't go for the pearl colored one though. I got the one with browns in it. Anyway... ya'll will see when I post the pic :) Happy planning!! What else are you girls working on?

                Fun!  Yeah the shells really are SO pretty.  They are real!

                 

                I just got some scallop shells in the mail (also an ebay find) yesterday that I'll be turning into our ring bearer "pillows" tonight.  I'll post a pic when I'm done!  I've also been working on escort cards, luggage tags, pretravel brochures, and need to finish barefoot jewelry for my sis and niece.  Home stretch, kind of!

                  ooh i cant wait to see your ring bearer pillow. Yes... it is the home stretch! Looks like our weddings are just about a week apart! I have been working on the same things lol. I just finished barefoot jewelry for my bridesmaids and niece as well! How funny. For my ring bearer (our son) I made a wooden sign that says "Daddy Here Comes Your Bride!" It's so cute. I've been letting him "practice" lol but he is only 18 months.

                      OK here are our ring bearer "pillows" (we have 2 ring bearers).  Not perfect but VERY easy and definitely serves the purpose!  I'll probably play with ways to tie the ribbon, not sure I love it like it is in the picture.
