Latitude & Longitude...

Having fun with all the shells and sand I have collected on our travels...recycle and re-use.
I got all the longitudes and latitudes of the where we found the shells,
ripped an old blank page from a book and printed on it.
I aged the tags with an ink pad and wiped it off
until I got the color I wanted..
glued them on, added bakers twine and a shell..


This is a very special sand dollar..
When we were in Panama we were invited over to see this amazing condo just down on
the beach from us.
I commented on my love for shells when I saw this 
sand dollar on Barb's counter in a lovely bowl.
Next thing I knew..it was mine.. thanks so much Barb and Tim,
we will see you in Kelowna.
I found that I had a small canvas, a map of South America,
which included Panama and my
idea for this display was born.


Sea Shells from Panama.



I just had to make a little banner to 
complete my 
display.

Aged label to perfection.
{at least in my mind}
