This first display is in a glass flour jar I got from Walmart. It contains shells from a few trips to Florida, as well as a shell from the 1933 World Fair in Chicago of my grandma's.

This display is in a blue ball jar that was my grandma's for canning. I have filled it with our shell necklaces from our Honeymoon in Hawaii. It also has a keychain of my other grandma's connected to fishing lure that was my grandpa's.

I added a few colored rock stones from the Dollar Tree and the top of a solar light from the Dollar Tree.

It's a little hard to tell in these pictures but the solar light does light up all the items inside at night and I love it.
