Home Is Where My Story Begins

A Beachy Look

I should warn you that there will probably never be another post without a collage. I LOVE MAKING COLLAGES! It’s so much fun and so simple in Picasa.

My house is far from beachy. It’s warm and cozy, not easy breezy. I have never displayed shells in my house because they just didn’t seem to go. This year I decided to venture out and try something new…just a few shells around the house.

Pretty little starfish are my favorites. My kids and I buy a few new shells every year when we visit the Seaside aquarium, in Oregon. The starfish were purchased there as well. I teach a beach unit every year in my classroom. This year, instead of packing my shells away, I decided to display them. Now my house is warm, cozy, and a little beachy.

Here are a few linky parties I like to participate in:

    Love the beachy touches and I like making collages in Picasa, too.

    Your mosaics are beautiful! Reminds me of when I lived 2 blocks from the beach. I loved collecting shells.
