turtles in all shapes and sizes

Decorating with turtle shells is such a sophisticated touch. There are great faux turtle shells available nowadays.

Not only do we want the shell in this picture, but we adore the chair. We’re all over this look.

Wouldn’t it be terrific to find this shell while out antiquing?

These lovely vintage illustrations are destined to find a way into my artwork.

Loving these turtle belt buckles. Just in time for fall.
