Travel Theme: On Display
Posted by Jody on October 17, 2012
This week’s Travel Theme has been put together with a little help from my friends! Beach enthusiasts love to bring back natural doodads and nicknacks as souvenirs. We wouldn’t think of packing them them away. No, beachcombers happily place their seashore treasures “On Display” before their aqua socks are dry!
“This one is mostly shells that I have found on the Gulf Shores of Florida. The sand dollars are from the Bahamas. The starfish that you see in front is store-bought, and the very large shell on top was from my mother’s collection – not sure where.” ~Mary
My “On Display” is a dressed up shelf in our kitchen. The various salt shakers are filled with seashells, sea glass, beach stones and wave tumbled pottery. The painting was done by our talented niece Jennifer Diehl, a well known artist from Portland, Oregon.
“As you know, my family likes to string up our beach finds. What you might not know is that we keep them “On Display” year-round! This special ornament “tree” holds shells, barnacles, beach rocks, a glass mermaid, and even Santa playing in the sand. When I was a kid, my favorite view of the Christmas tree was looking up from underneath.” ~Alaina
Please feel free to send a photo of your best beach treasure display! We love to share.
“Travel Theme: On Display” is inspired by Ailsa of Where’s my backpack?
