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.

Orange You Glad

...I'm not doing Music Monday?!

I sure am because it means I'm doing this instead!
Aren't these orange scallops beautiful?
I can count on one hand how many orange scallops I have found.
So where did I get all of these?
THE Shell Lady sent them to me!
Aren't they just gorgeous????!!!!!

She also sent some Paper Figs!
Yah! A whole bunch of them! I had told her about me only finding 1 ever.....and I had just ordered some Paper Figs to work with. LOL! She also sent these various colored scallops......
and other shells, too!

Thank you so much Cheri! I'm so excited to work with these! My custom order isn't due until spring of next year, but now I'm not sweating bullets over finding orange scallops. I can breathe a little easier now!

I apologize for the picture backgrounds...I'm rearranging my crafty space and trying to find a place to set up a dedicated photo area. No more pulling everything out to take pics! 

Now it's back to washing the shells the grandkids, hubby, and I found in Belleair!
And sorting them into my shell containers....
I like to reuse whatever containers I have on hand! Reuse, Reduce, Recycle!!!

I have some finished necklaces to show you (I mentioned them just before the kids came to visit) so I'll see you soon!

Those scallops are going to make some beautiful pieces. Shellers are the nicest people on the planet.

Reduce, reuse, recycle is my motto! :) I can't wait to see what would become out of those orange shells!

Glad I could help!! Hubby is going back to Sanibel for the 4th, (don't think I can go) and I'm gonna have him look for more orange scallops, so there may be more on the way!!
