sea treasures

Just a few treasures I've gathered from along the shore since we moved here two years ago.  Although many of the shells are merely pieces of what they once were, I still found their color and texture quite beautiful.  Dark pieces of wood make me wonder where they came from originally,  perhaps bits off an old ship or simply remains of a weekend bonfire. Pearlescent looking chips, not exactly sure what they are exactly, look almost like large fish scales . . . off a mermaid!  Ha ha!  Amongst the seashells, I've gathered pieces of seaweed, sea glass, and feathers.  I love combing the beach.  Maybe I'll be lucky one day and find an old bottle!  You just never know what treasures the ocean will carry over to the shore for you. 

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!
