52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Seashell Peach

All kinds of Easter-themed ideas came to mind this week, but when I finally sat down and asked myself what my perfect seashell wish would be, the answer was actual shells. I grew up in a landlocked state, so the spell of the ocean came to me later in life. My husband grew up on an island so he never feels happy unless the ocean is within eye-shot. And I am a convert, I must admit. There is only one thing that relaxes me totally and completely and that is walking along looking at the ocean and picking up shells. My niece came to visit in December and even though the water was cold, she caught the fever too. Check out her little bag of shells…

Seashells in Winter

There’s just something magical about those left over pieces of some life that was lived wholly underwater. And who can forget that whooshing sea-sound when listening to one:

My favorite shells in SL are made by Naiman Broome, the talented designer of the Las Islas Estates. He has created so many fabulous things, but I do love the shells. And you never do know when you might need some, so that will be my giveaway this week to one lucky commenter!
