Shell Game...

My name is M...and I am a shellhoarder.




And you would be too if you could get them
for 99 cents a bag! Yep, the good 'ol 99 Cent
Store has bags & bags of them...well, not the
one I went too, since I bought them all! ;)
Hoarder!
But, I had to do something with them,
right?




**SHOCK**GASP** ;}





Truly, tho...I did make something more
than a platter full of pretty shells...




Well, Christmastime is upon us...so, a
wreath seemed like a good idea!






A little sparkle...





A little shine...






A little something pretty,





that I can actually use all year long!

  14. Oh I love, love love it, M! So cute! (I'm glad you're a shell hoarder!) I keep moving your pink star fish all around my room. I can't decide where to leave it! I guess that means I can just keep moving it around! A woman's perogative- right? ☺

  20. I am a sand dollar hoarder. I have hundreds and hundreds that I get on the beach here in Coronado. I just wish I could figure out something to do with them. They are so fragile that most uses aren't really possible. Still, I collect and save them. Just in case. And if I saw shells for 99 cents a bag, I would buy them all too! The wreath is just stunning!
