The End of Cancer


Set of Eight Italian Cast Pewter "Seashell" Placecard Holders (LEO Design)


Although I'd much prefer to announce the end of the dreadful disease, my observation today is far less significant: today is the last day of the sun sign Cancer. Having no crabs in current stock, I have opted for their watery neighbors instead—seashells.  This assortment of eight different seashells were made of cast pewter in Italy.  Each is slotted to hold a place card at table.  They can also be used to hold a note, photograph, business card or descriptive label.  And they would provide sophisticated punctuation at your next dinner party's table setting.  Click on the photo above to learn more about them.
