The Crazy Suburban Mom: Finding beauty in your space is never about money...

Finding beauty in your space is never about money...

One of the things I love about Cape May...

Besides the quiet....

And 5 a.m....


Is walking on the beach and picking up bits of rock and glass, shell...


Especially broken shells.

These little bits of color and shape are very lovely to me. They are all around, easily found and passed over by any one searching for sea glass. Shell collectors are looking for perfection in their shells and even the person looking for a memento of Cape May isn't looking for water-worn shards.


I bring all these things home with me to live. In things that were not expensive. Things I got at estate sales, garage sales - things that were passed-over as not worthy, too. Junk. Beauty isn't about money. The shells and stones, the glass and treasures I pick up on the beach find homes in the other treasures and all together, in my home, I think they look quite regal.

Beautiful. Isn't it neat that God lets you capture the sound of the sea as well, in His shells that He gives us.

That's something I've always wanted to do, just walk a beach and pick up treasures! I could happily do it all day. Beautiful post today!
Happy VTT!

Your shells are really pretty, I remember as a girl loving the sound of large shells. Have a great VTT!

I always brought shells home from a trip to the beach. And for years I kept them in glass containers. Happy VTT!
