|Photo Frame with Seashells and Sea Glass|
I've been spending some time on Friday mornings -- hitting the local beaches to collect shells. Here is a landmark on Revere Beach - Kelly's Roast Beef. It's a great place to get fried clams, lobster rolls and fish. I stopped there for a breakfast sandwich and coffee before hunting for shells.
Here's the sun shining over Revere Beach one morning.
Well, this is what you have to choose from on Revere Beach. Not a lot of interesting stuff but if you look closely you can find some gems.
Of course, these seagulls are permanent residents along Revere Beach. Lot's of them hang out by Kelly's and feast on not only what washes up with the tide but also what people will share of their Kelly's dinners. You really need to be careful because if you leave your food unguarded -- they will come and steal it.
These seagulls prefer fresh over fried seafood.
Here are some of the seashells I collected this week. Some of them are just bits of broken seashells that some would pass by. I love these though because even though they are broken -- they are tossed and their rough edges are all smoothed out. Each one is unique.
Visit my Etsy shop here to see where I have used some of these collected seashells to the embellished photo frames and other nautical themed wreaths and wall hangings.
