Shells and Driftwood

After the beautiful mild winter where we had temperatures of nearly 20 C in early March the cold and snow have returned in April. So we need to think warm thoughts to remind ourselves that spring is indeed here. What could inspire those thoughts more than the beach? I love beach-combing in my bikini (that got your attention, didn’t it? Alas, bikini days are gone but Hubby still has some pictures of me in a sexy orange one from years ago) and almost every time we go I come back with one or two pieces of driftwood to add to my collection. Shells, too although there are only so many different types here on the Witch’s Island.

So here are some shells I’ve gathered from various places (the most colourful ones were bought at a local store) and some of my best driftwood pieces to date. I say to date because, Beach Queen that I am, I will be looking to grab some more this year. One thing about living on an island is that there is always lots of beach to comb. I’m truly blessed because I have a great place to live.
I hope you all enjoy the pictures.

When we lived in Wisconsin, we used to beach comb along Lake Michigan and we would find some nice pieces of driftwood--We did this when we lived in Alaska too. But we weren't lucky enough to find pieces like you have, they are exquisite as are your shells!!
