Why I Collect White Shells....


This is why I have been collecting plain,bleached white shells.Why I bartered coquinas for white shells with Gina.Why I pick up even common Ark shells.And,of course,those notorious buttercups ("why do you build me up...").
And I don't have near enough,yet.I just wanted to get started on this project.
It's an old mirror,bought in Newport,Rhode Island, in 1969.One of those tacky old nautical type mirrors,that were supposed to look a ship's wheel.I took those ugly spoke things off.Primed it,painted it white,and started hot gluing(one of my favorite things to do!).
I still need more mini's,tho,to go around the outer edge.It's going to be continuous work in progress,I think.
Eventually,it will go in the upstairs guest bathroom(which is in the great plan to be worked on,in the future).

Gary was driving us from the beach the other day and that song came on the radio. He didn't turn it off or change the station, either. I think he secretly digs it.
