Sand dollar love! Do you know the difference between East Coast and West Coast sand dollars? So thankful to Sheila @siringsea (hostess of the very cool #sanddollarweek ) for providing informational cards with the sand dollars in each December SeaCrate (swipe for additional photos). Special thanks to @adorablystrange for collecting the Oregon sand dollars! Will your SeaCrate contain an East Coast or West Coast variety? Read its info card to find out! Thanks Sheila @siringsea! 🏝💸
What is glass? Silica and minerals melted together, shaped and cooled. Then there is sea glass: discarded and broken, deemed worthless, and left to the elements. Worn by sand, broken down by the chemical reactions of ocean, it loses it’s hard sheen, and sharp edges. It smooths down and washes up. It has become a gemstone of sorts, helped by man, but ultimately affected most by the acts of nature that surround it. There is some magical charm in it.
Here, we have a series of seaside houses for sale ranging in design from "yikes, not much thought went into that, eh?" to "I dream of classical Greece." Post-Gothic Revival by the #oyster
Spacious minimalism by the #quahog
Neo-Grecian by the #scallop
If any bivalves out there are in the market for a new home, pls contact local realtor, Sally, who sells these sea homes down by the seashore.
Told my hubby that I wanted to decorate for Christmas with seashells this year. 🎄➕🐚. But he shot it down! He likes pulling out our traditional ornaments year after year so I’ll give him that. 😘😘 But I’m thinking this little JOY might need to go in my Etsy shop! Whatdaya think??
