Shells

 Barnacles

Some of us would enjoy being on a warm, sunny beach, right?  The next best thing, I guess, is to imagine that that's where we are. To help you, I'm showing you samples of my sister-in-law's shell collection.

Remarkable textures!

My mother had a coral very similar to that second one.

Wonderful shells. So dekorative and
full of structure.
Nice weekend to you.

Would it be awful if I told you I was on a warm, sunny beach yesterday?

Okay. Never mind.

Też zbieram muszle, ale takich pieknych okazów nie mam. Pozdrawiam.

Also collect shells, but these do not have the beautiful specimens. Yours.

Trouble is the blue coral only reminds me of blue ice. Brr!

Nancy said...

So I'm not the only one! :-) Shells and pebbles for me, though I don't have any blue coral. It's beautiful!

I would love to be on the beach at the moment, sick to death of this rotten weather we are having.

Rose said...

These are so neat! I couldn't figure out what they were till I read. (first two) Even then, I thought them beautiful.

Nicki said...

These are amazing. Thanks for sharing them with us.

These are all so pretty and unusual. Although I have seen lots of barnacles before. I'm ready to escape but won't be. Well, does Calgary count? :-)

I like the white coral.

Very unique pieces.
The first one looks like a bee hive from sea.

Who would think barnacles could be so beautiful? Amazing.

Sandra said...

i have never seen barnacles except in the wild, as on beaches and boats. never thought about collected them. these are beautiful pieces of art. mother collected shells, but the everyday garden variety

Not having seen barnacles before, I had no idea that they were so pretty. I love the texture of each image.

What a great idea on a wonderfully blizzard filled day. I'm going to go look for more shells and flowers and green grass.

Gunilla Bäck said...

Gorgeous! I love the shapes and the textures in those.

Silke said...

Beautiful! I love shells of any kind, the more textured the better! I live close to the beach here, but it's anything but warm right now... xoxo Silke
