Nature Amazes Me With Its Beauty

Nature really does amaze me, just check out this awesome week’s discovery.  Inside the spiky urchin pictured below is a small spiral shell which was found on the latest beach trip by The Shell Lady. It is uncommon to see this in our neck of the woods. It’s a ram’s horn shell, which is our third one ever found (twice by the Shell Lady & once by her daughter, Matty). It is an internal shell of the rams horn squid, only to be released to sea after the critter has died. It’s common to southern Africa & northern Australian waters, but not to the Gulf of Mexico. Not only are these very small shells, but there sure aren’t as many found in our waters. Yipee! No. 3 & counting, found & collected on North Padre Island beaches to our collection.

Wondering how & where we get our fabulous selection of small & tiny driftwood accents used in many of our designs? To many, this may look like just a bunch of washed up debris on the seashore, but to The Shell Lady, it’s pure golden treasure — The secret is out!

The best way to find those miniature-sized driftwood pieces, sea beans, & mini seashells, is to just dig right in and keep a watchful eye as well as keep your imagination open for possible creations for the artwork’s designing process. Most importantly, have fun!

Natural blue green limpet shells, certainly a favorite of many! Nature never ceases to amaze me with its beauty.
