I've been collecting seashells for as long as I can remember. From east to west, coast to coast, and shore to shore, I always find a treasure to keep, and adore.

Seashell Saturday

I've been a little absent, it's like I've been away,
but I'm holed up in my studio, with shells and pearls all day!
Before I knew what day it was, the day dawned bright and clear.
and just when I thought time stood still, Saturday was here!


Just when I think it's coming together, problems do arise,
and every time I break a shell, it comes as a total surprise!


A very, very, sad surprise,
that doth bring tears to my eyes...

It doesn't happen often, of that I'm really glad,
because every time I break a shell,
it really makes me really MAD!

Sometimes I have to soak them, to get calcium off the shell,
But vinegar is evil, and will send your shell to hell!

I haven't gotten over it, I'm sad, I'm sure you know...
This was a very special shell, I don't find many YELLOW!

I'm staying in my studio, I don't have time to rest,
'Cause I really think this bracelet, is going to be my BEST!

What am I working on now?
ALL of the above!

I'm thinking of you ALL,
and sendling lots of LOVE!

Poor shell(s)...very clever post. It sounds like you're being productive. I admire your drilling apparatus. I want to do that someday with sea glass, but I'm afraid of spoiling a good piece, so I just buy pre-drilled right now.
