I love it. The simplicity is delightful.
So glad you left the conch OUTSIDE the house; I'm not overly superstitious but you won't find one of those in my home.
Really... I never heard of any superstitions about the conch shell.......
Conch lore has it that bringing a shell inside the house invites bad luck. When Miss Wilhelina met Queen Elizabeth, she gave her a conch but didn't tell her not to take inside the palace. Later that year there was a fire in the palace and her son and d-i-l split up. Miss Wilhelmina felt there was direct correlation--maybe? LOL
