~ shelled fireplace~

I saw a picture in a magazine where they attached oyster shells to the fireplace surround.  I couldn't find oysters so I ordered some shells wholesale and attached them with a hot glue gun to the fireplace surround.  Looks greats...really like!!!!    The black metal box with legs on the left is the first reported gas heater called the Thrift Gas Heater manufactured by Welsbach Co. in Gloucester City, N.J.  The heater was my first ebay purchase.
