    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...

    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...

     The beachs up here are cold, for me and not too many shells that aren't beaten up by the time they reach the shore.

    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 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.

    Relaxing

    I've only gathered shells at the beach just once, and it was by myself. Sometimes I wish I had that special someone to gather shells with.
