Happy Monday, my beachy friends. I hope that you had a great weekend and found some time to dig your toes in the sand…or at least relax and dream about digging your toes in the sand!
I’ve been cleaning batch after batch of seashells this weekend (you may recall my treasure of seashells found on the beach last month) so I’ve kind of got seashells on the brain right now…well, more than usual. LOL! Leave it to Better Homes & Gardens to distract me…I remember flipping through my mom’s BHG magazine back in the 1970’s as a kid and I still enjoy it today. They never disappoint when I’m looking for fun craft projects, garden ideas, recipes and such. They even have projects for those of us that LOVE our seashells. I recently found a few fun projects to try including this wonderful seashell birthday card, which might just give me an excellent excuse to quit shell cleaning for a while…

Has anyone done a mosaic with seashells? If you have, I’d certainly love to hear about your experience. I’ve been wanting to do something like this for a long time, but haven’t gotten up the nerve yet.

Recycling always makes me happy and this simple little project reuses a tin can as a flower holder! You could use fabric, paper, wallpaper, paint or whatever you can come up with to cover and beautify your new flower holder . . .

I think I’m going to give the tin can flower holder a try first…what about you?
