Creations, Coastal Holiday Sign

HHjr and a friend went snorkeling on a sand bar recently and harvested a bounty of sand dollars

He washed them, dried them in the sun and bleached them for me!

So when life hands you sand dollars, you make a sand dollar holiday sign!

I played around with tiles, sea glass and the sand dollars….

I glued the shells on with clear E6000

    You are too clever! Yes that is a bounteous harvest! Hubby has a briefcase full that he collected in his teens! He never did anything with them, but they are his treasure. The JOY sign is just darling!
