Shell Treasures

As some of you may have guessed - Mom is a bit crazy about shells so we thought we would share some of our finds and what Mom has been doing with them. Yesterday I found this awesome giant Florida Cockle Shell for Mom - it measure 5.5" across. I was digging at it to try and get to the dried up shrimp underneath it and Mom came over to see what I was doing - she was soooooo happy I found the nice smelly shrimp shell for her. Then Mom found this shell which we found out is called a "Paper Fig". We are surprised it survived the surf as it is... as the name suggest.... paper thin and very delicate. Mom has also been busy painting "Lucines" most of them she does with sea creature pictures on them but he also did a set that has Viking/Celtic designs on them too. Mom leaves these on the end of the boardwalks for people to find and has given away over a 100 of them now. Remember you can double click on the picture to see them bigger.
