As I took this photo before wrapping the gift, from the other room I heard a commercial.
"Homemade gifts stink"
Oh well. Ho Ho Ho!
I spotted a shell shadowbox in a Wisteria catalog. That triggered the thought of all the shells I have from the beach. I have wondered what to do with them and rarely collect any more.
So, for my mother in law, I took the shells from her favorite beach and made a shadow box for her.
A sand dollar broke, so see those itty bitty white spots below the top sand dollar? They are the tiny dove shaped shells inside of each sand dollar. I couldn't believe that they did not break while trying to glue them to the arrangement.
Off to work with the caterer today. Cooking and baking for a Christmas lunch party...
