We recently went to Sanibel Island on the West Coast of Florida. If you haven’t heard, it is one of the best places to find seashells. Seashells cover the beaches and I spent hours with my bucket, just walking and picking up seashells. Affectionately called the “Sanibel Stoop”
I guess it is about time I wrote a blog on my passions. Of course some of you have been following me for years as I have made so many seashell designs. I like making small items, ornaments, home decor, wedding items and garlands. It has always been my passion to work with seashells. When I was a little girl, I walked into a shell shop in Florida and I said to my mother, I want to own a shop like this when I grow up. Well I got to do the next best thing and create designs in my home and show them to you on the web.
There are more creative passions I have, which I hope to post from time to time. I love Crochet, which I have been doing since I was a little girl. My wonderful mother taught me how to crochet and she made some of the most beautiful afghans, throws and pillows. I’ve done a few afghans and throws myself. But I like to make small items, like dishcloths, coasters, and potholders.
And being of 100% Italian decent, I love to cook. I cook the family recipes and a few new creations from time to time.
So I hope you will join me in my passions and creations.
Thanks for stopping by the Shellhut!
