Tiny treasures from the sea


I am still savoring the last dog days of summer and one of my favorite collections - sea shells.  Somehow, I still don't want to put them away.  The ocean in the dead of winter is quite perfect to me.

Some of my favorite shell treasures are the wee ones.  Collected and nestled in a vintage butter pat, I almost wish I could encase them in glass like this.

 
 
My favorite is the abalone shell - incredibly tiny, barely bigger than a quarter with a huge flash of rainbow iridescence.  Maybe I will hold onto these a little longer, mixed with some jingle bells?
 
I hope your summer has been sweet!
