365 Magical Moments: Day 6

I have this decorative seashell filled with other tiny, decorative seashells. It's just something I picked up years ago at the craft store, back when I lived in California.

One of the things I really miss about living in California is the beach. I miss sitting on a rocky outcropping along the 17-mile drive or just past Cannery Row in Monterey and watching the waves crash against the rocks.

This little seashell decoration reminds me of it.

  1. I have an abalone shell from Canada which is filled with rose buds and sits on my writer's altar on my desk. Prior to that it was a leaf shaped ceramic bowl I made filled with tiny rocks and shells from Tasmania.

    It is amazing how small tokens can evoke such poignant memories.
