three days after returning home from vacation, my unpacked suitcase still lies on the kitchen floor. First things first, right? Washing the kazillions of seashells in our luggage and figuring out what to do with them.
that last one is an ongoing challenge.
I call it collecting, but some might call it hoarding.
Even though we have some lovely sand dollars, we’ve been very careful placing them throughout the house because they are so fragile. Cristybella mentioned on the flight home that she wished we had a clever way to arrange and display our sand dollar collection. So I started thinking.
I figured they might be less at risk if they were not in a position to be moved. I started with a short piece of driftwood and some strands of hemp and tied overhand knots in alternating pairs.
Then I tied sand dollars to the hemp strands with thread and interspersed small pieces of coral, shells and short strands of beads.
Hanging in the hallway just outside the study, we’ll be able to enjoy it constantly.
I love it!
Unfortunately, I still have to unpack and do laundry.
And I still have to figure out what to do with the other two dozen sand dollars.
