You want to go to the seaside?

22 Mar

Well make sure you bring a little bit home with you!  Remember when I went to Connecticut with two of my best friends a few weeks ago??  Well I brought a piece of Connecticut home with me 🙂  I collected a bunch of the shells from Milford to bring home with me and have in my house to always remind me.  That beach also had some of the most beautiful shells I’ve ever seen.  I cleaned them up and put them in one of my favorite bowls.  It was an easy way to make my home feel more like a home and remind me of my travels.

I’ve never seen shells this perfect come from a west coast beach!

If you see things that you like while on vacation, bring them back with you to make them part of your home.  Now whenever I see this, I’ll think about my awesome time with my friends and hope that I can have more good memories soon with them!

    It’s been a while since I was at a beach that comes with good shells. Usually I just see broken ones, by the million. But I have a corked glass bottle full of sand from one of my favorite beaches, one that’s full of memories with my friends. One of my friends and I had always wished we could bottle the “essence” of the good times we’ve had there. So, our beautiful bottles of sand take a prominent place in the home decor. : )

    I haven’t collected sea shells for three decades! Seriously, I’m really, really old….

      Haha I hadn’t in a very long time either. I guess it takes inspiring shells to start collecting again!
