how beautiful to bring some of the outside in.

i don't think i've ever actually seen a sand dollar fresh from the sand before. i've only seend ones that have been prettied up to be paper weights or ornamental things.

how lovely!

I really like your unique art style. :)

Liv @ Choosing Beauty said...

Genius! Love this! I wish sand dollars would also pay the bills. Although, when you're in touch with that spark within - which you are - the sand dollars and real dollars find their way to you!

Bella Sinclair said...
