SEA SHELLS IN THE BURBS!!

Hi friends...
It won't be long now before we head to the shore for the summer months, but it was definitely time to "SUMMER UP" our home in the BURBS with our collection of sea shells and sea glass...(all hand picked by myself, my husband or one of our 3 girls)...
No store bought shells in this family...LOL...
take a peek and happy summer....:)














We love collecting seashells, sea glass and all kinds of wonderful finds down the shore...happy to share a very small sampling with you all...
