collected in one afternoon on the mediterranean beach near sete, france
This is so beautiful (each one is like a little sculpture). Your photo triggered a childhood memory. My grandmother used to vacation in South Carolina each year and would come back with tiny shells that she would glue in rows. Rows and rows of little butterflies.
I totally get your grandmother: gather, sort, arrange. I think we all share that desire. It is just so deeply satisfying. That is why am loving this project. I get to do it every day. It is very centering.
Thanks for sharing Kathleen.
This is incredible! What a wonderful collection. Love the way you’ve set it up for display.
This speaks to the accountant in me….

i really enjoy the natural sculptural aspect of burrs in general
Usually I find those on my sleeve or my dog’s fur so I don’t stop to note how pretty they are–kind of like a spiky pine cone.
I am pleased that I inspired your fresh eyes.
I’m coming to you from the Creative Courage e-class..and all I can say is WOW! So very inspiring and impressive. Will look forward to seeing where you go with this project. WOW!

congrats mary jo
such beautiful work
There is a lovely museum feel to your blog. I came because of Arounna’s mention on Facebook. Glad I did.
Thank you so much Kathleen. That was exactly the feels I was going for.
And I am glad I didn’t scare you too much with the walnut shells :-)
