Collecting sea shells - tutorial

Who doesn't love shells?  Sea shells or lake shells - I love them!  I still have a box full of tiny shells from the Lake of Galilee but today I am posting about sea shells.

I used to walk on the beach looking for tiny shells.  Sometimes, if I was lucky I found some, most times I came home empty handed but always with a backache from bending and stooping down.  Not anymore.

One day, my daughter Nilly, who is much more clever than her mum, brought me a plastic bag about one kilogram (2 pounds) full of sea debris.  She just went in deep high into the sea and filled this bag from the seabed.  Now, she said, you can sit down at your table and sort this out.  The photos here show what I found.









All this lute came out of that bag.  Nilly, who loves the sea all year round will bring me more bags in other seasons of the year.  She says that each season carries different shells.

Think of what can be done with all this, mirror and picture frames, decorative boxes....

I do hope some of you will find this post useful.

Blessings

  2. Que bien suena eso del mar de Galilea. Con esas conchas puedes hacer cuadros para baño, y muchas cosas para decoración.

  7. ¡Cuantas cosas puedes hacer con esas conchas¡. Incluso pueder forrar un mueble entero. Yo conozco una pequeña iglesia que tiene todo el exterior forrado de conchas. Seguro que les vas a dar un buen uso. Tienes una hija estupenda. Un beso.
