Bring the Ocean to Us

We are inveterate collectors of shells found on beaches or via dives my husband has made—always being careful not to collect anything living or harboring a little resident.

Since we’ve not ventured to a beach yet this year, my clever sister brought the ocean to us in the form of this beautiful glass panel she created depicting an underwater scene.

Connie used a few of our ocean treasures, adding a tiny baby sea turtle (not real) to represent a family outing we made to a sea turtle sanctuary a couple of years ago at Topsail Island, N.C.

Brilliant, isn’t she?

And people wonder where I get my cleverness from... ;) I love the panel, June! Now you have your own little piece of the ocean all the way out there in the desert!

Love,
Shauna

I think this is so well done both in her design but in putting it together so beautifully -- excellent work.

Absolutely beautiful and what a great way to bring forth good memories and wonderful times! And I do believe I see a little mermaid hiding in there somewhere ;)

Connie is very talented, June! This is such a lovely piece and all the more made special because it includes shells you found on a special vacation.
