It’s not a trip to the beach without seashells, right?
My father-in-law found that big kahuna for us; I think I’ll use it to hold all our shells nice and pretty-like on the bookcase 🙂
And also, these are kinda stinky. Would it hurt the shells any if I were to boil them? Maybe throw my Diva Cup (need to sterilize it…) and a few eggs to hardboil into the pot, too. Multitasking!*
This one’s my favorite:
I like how it’s soft and swirly and curvy and pure white.
These are my favorites, too:
I like the colors of the left and middle one. And I like the right one because it has SPIKES. It’s like a warrior shell. Ninjashell. BADASS.
But this is my most favorite of all:
::squealing:: EETTSSSS SOOOOOOO TIIIIINYYYY!!!!
Either that, or that’s a comically-oversized lenscap. I’ll let you guess which.
Look what else I found at the beach!
Well, not “at the beach”, per se. More like “at a delightful yarn shop sorta near the beach”. Which is close enough for me 🙂
That’s Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock, in a colorway called:
Any guesses where I bought it? 😀
Yup, that’s a special colorway available only at A Good Yarn. Cute story about the shop – Jeff and I pulled up just as they were closing; Susan (the absolutely delightful and funny and super nice) owner was literally walking out and locking the door after her. But just as I was about to hang my head and cry and trudge home, she ushered me inside and turned the lights back on and fairly FORCED me to browse. Oh, the torture! 😀
It was a great shop, though. My mother-in-law is a lapsed knitter who’s thinking about getting back into the craft; I told her how lucky she is to have such a fantastic shop down there (not that I’m lacking in great shops here in St. Louis or anything…:-)), and I can’t wait to visit again next time we’re down there! (And Picasso’s Moon. And the other 40bazillion other Sarasota and Venice shops I wasn’t able to hit this time).
Yarn really is the perfect souvenir for every vacation, isn’t it?
*Just kidding. For pete’s sake why did you even feel the need to ask?
