Let nature inspire you

I was on vacation in Florida last week and enjoyed walking along the beach collecting shells. There is something amazingly therapeutic about feeling the sand and the waves on your feet! Of course there were LOTS of broken shells and it was a challenge for the kids and I to find the perfect shell. We found some really beautiful and whimsical ones and even found a sand dollar. Even the not so perfect shells were beautiful.

When we finished we took a picture of some of the collections we found. I was inspired by the beautiful colors in each one of the shells. I'm sure I'll be painting a room one of these soft muted colors soon.

When I returned from my vacation, I saw this in William Sonoma's catalog - Guess what I'll be making to finish off my vacation.

Let nature inspire you!
