I live in the midwest, so I really hadn't seen them used in decorating, although I have seen starfish and shells used in coastal and cottage decorating magazines all the time.
Here are some barnacles I found on the internet:
|For sale on Amazon - World Imports $87|
|Silver Barnacles from Clayton Gray $134|
|Sold by Regina Andrews $97|
Then barnacles from Pinterest and the Blogs:
|In a bottle as a boquet from Pinterest|
|As ornamentation on a flower pot from Pinterest|
|On a stack of books from Pinterest|
|Framing a mirror from Pinterest|
|Wall decor from Pinterest|
|In a vignette by swedetypepad.com|
|My $2 garage sale barnacles.|
|My barnacles on a stack of books.|
|My barnacles in a vignette with a plate and Florence Ceramic's Sue Ellen.|
So are barnacles hot? Are they a fad? or what?
