I Love to Gather Shells At the Beach

    I found a bag of sea shells in an arts

    and crafts tote in the closet today. I dumped them all out and I felt content inhaling the scent of the salty ocean on the shells. My hands smelled like it for quite a while, and when it went away I was sad. I long to go to the ocean right about now. You see, this year in Maine...

    I Love Collecting Beautiful Rocks And Shells Along The Beach.

    Depending on whether you're a glass half empty or glass half full kind of person: you could say I'm fortunate enough to get to go to the beach once a year, or UNFORTUNATELY I ONLY get to go once a year! I think I must be a glass half empty kind of gal, cause every day that I'm...

    Early Morning Bliss

    I love to get up, slip into some comfy shoes, and go walking on the beach before others start stirring.  I especially love picking up different shells imagining what it must have been like under the sea.  I soon lose myself,  imagining mermaids and other nythical...

    Early Meanderings

    Ever since I was quite small I have collected shells from the beach. I think I must have over a thousand shells now, which are in a small chest in my bedroom. I mean to create something from them sometime. I thought about using them to top flower and plant pots.

    The randomness of finding shells on the beach

    adds to the use of them in my seithr, and I am diligent in first cleaning each one of the sea's touch, carefully removing dirt and other chemical residues. I then wish them in clean water, gathered from a stream a little way from the house in Stavanger, and I lay them out to...

    Put Them To Good Use

    I don't live anywhere near an ocean, but even when I go on vacation I can't sit still, so when everyone else is sun-bathing I collect shells. When I proposed to my wife I hid the ring in a pirate's chest that I made out of old weathered wood and decorated with sea shells from...
