Seashells in My Pocket

Okay, this is a little embarrassing to confess.   Every time Tom does the laundry, what do you he finds tumbling around the dryer?   Shells, sea glass, tiny rocks, the usual flotsam and jetsam that I cannot resist putting in my pockets every time we go for a beach walk.
(tiny olive shell discovered at Half Moon Bay)

It's a little bit of an addiction (a problem?) I love bringing home those little memories of a day beside the sea.

(yesterday's pocket!)

Makes me very happy to see those little bits of "beach" gathered together in my bookends, or displayed on my dining room table in my big bamboo bowl.

Can you imagine my excitement when we found these awesome  shell shadowbox art pieces?  Simply perfect for me!  Especially the series with one of my favorite beach quotes 

"May you always have a shell in your pocket and sand in your shoes." 


Now to decide which color frame and which shell I need......



Have a great Monday!





(P.S.  More shells and more Shore Sayings available too!  Check our  NEW Shore Elements category)

Embarrassing? It sounds all too familiar to me. Try explaining sharks teeth to the Maytag man :D

I collect all sorts of little things at the beach and I treasure them all. You picked up some beauties and I love those shadow boxes!

I know the feeling - we have the same problem in our house!

LOVE the bowl with all your treasures!!! The Happiness rock is PERFECT!!! I've seen one similar at a local card store. Might have to pick one up. I have a starfish dish in my bathroom with my treasures. :-) It would be a perfect addition.

Relax and Live at the Beach Every Day of the Year!
