Looking for a dramatic way to display favorite treasures that represent where you live?  My mom came up with this super chic way to showcase pieces of ancient coral she collected from the banks along the waterfront.  Using a pair of urns used for hydrangeas in my wedding two and a half years ago, she filled them with pieces of coral, and placed them on either side of the entrance to the garage.

Such an effortlessly beautiful way to add some personality to an otherwise boring porch!
