Since New England beaches boast mainly oyster shells over anything else, I tend to go into maniacal collecting mode whenever I'm at a beach in the south. I love New England and I will always be a passionate Bostonian at heart, but, really, nothing compares to the beaches of Florida or North Carolina.
This results in an accumulating repertoire of sea shells of all shapes and sizes. Thankfully, there are a million crafts you can do with shells, and most of them are crazy-easy.
While the ones in the jar are from my cousin's wedding, the ones in the glass vase is from the Florida leg of my honeymoon, using an old wedding vase to hold the shells.
The projects for sea shells are endless. Which is good, because my love for collecting sea shells is just as endless, too.
