I recently went to Florida on vacation.  In the house we rented I saw flowers that were made from seashells.  How had I never seen something like this before?  I fell in love with the idea (which I now know is a common idea) and combed the beach every morning for shells.  I couldn't find any shells like the one I saw in the rental but I found thousands of other shells that I thought I might be able to make into flowers.  My boyfriend and his family all thought I was crazy because I literally brought back 10 pounds of shells.  I really got into all shell crafts but the best of the bunch is the shell mirror.  It turns out the shells I collected make awesome flowers.















Thanks for looking
