Bird Figurine Series - # 23

    I think if I had the chance to have another collection it would be seashells.  Many years ago my twin and I  saw a huge display of seashells in a hotel and it was so beautiful. My mother told me that when she was a little girl she used to collect seashells and her father would carry some for her whenever he went to Port Maria, the capital of our parish.  Well, the two birds below were made of seashells.  Janine and I were thrilled when we received them.

I used to like collecting sea shells too, especially the ones from the beaches. I have many now that I would love to display but haven't figured out how. I like how yours are put into a figure like that. Have a great weekend.

It is great that you have many sea shells Self Sagacity. The collection we saw in a hotel was in a glass display unit. It looked so lovely. Have a good weekend.

I love seashells too. My MIL use to collect them & she's been all over the world. I inherited a few when she passed & she painted the name where it originated on it somewhere & special rocks too. Personally I love your silver vase there. That's really different. Have a great weekend my friend.
