According to feng shui, one way to invite chi (universal energy) into our homes is by creating a welcoming environment around doorways with plants, chimes or banners. Apparently, chi responds to attractive, cheerful entryways the way you or I would.
When I got home from work today, I found this pretty seashore mobile on the back porch. Cristy made it from driftwood and shell pieces.
She drilled tiny holes in the driftwood and the shells and attached them with bead thread, adding a small bead at each end to secure the knots.
Although she originally planned to incorporate sea glass pieces, it seems that we do not have the correct dremel drillbit to drill through glass without shattering it. Oops
This pretty mobile contains examples of our favorite seashell varieties, plentiful along the Texas coast. How could universal energy resist? Thank you Cristy, my dear heart, I love this wonderful work of beach art.
