At the antique shop we visited the other day (read about it here), the tween found this shell box. It was only $5.00 she explained and was full of tiny shells she just KNEW she needed. My first thought was…HOARDER. Ok, I’m sorry but she is. She just LOVES junk and junk which has lots of extra pieces is even more appealing. But it is her allowance (they feed the animals in the afternoons while I am at work and clean stalls) and I let her spend it.
Well to my surprise, she really did NEED that junk. When I came home from work yesterday she asked me about a shadow box I had purchased that was too small and we never returned it. I gave it to her along with some glue and this is what she created:
She took the shells and complemented them with some pretty glass rocks from our local dollar store. She then decorated the frame. She used every little shell in that box.
It is all drying today and she will save it to give to her friend as a Christmas present.
Hmmm….maybe she isn’t just a hoarder after all 🙂
