After all of that shell collecting at the beach last week,
we had to come home and make some crafts with our new treasures.
Such a lovely way to remember our beach trip and so much nicer than store-bought knick-knacks.
We sorted our shells and drift wood on some newsprint
then got to work making some mobiles with some of our rainbow yarn.
We hung one up in the backyard, under the trees in the corner the girls call
"Nature School" (it's their secret club)
This one is hanging in "E"s room, over her desk.
Such beautiful colors....
It makes the sweetest twinkling sound in the breeze from "E"s ceiling fan...
As I was tucking her in (and singing our nightly lullaby)
at bedtime tonight, it sounded like the gentle tinkle of fairy songs or mermaids.
Fondly, pink and green mama, MaryLea
