Gifts from the Sea

On my last trip to Hawaii,




i found these adorable little sand dollars. 




Not on the beach though, 




I found them in a basket in a shop.






So I bought a handful.




And when I decided to photograph them,  




I knew they would look stunning in my grandmother's vintage chintz sugar bowl.


If you haven't already entered my " Angel Kisses " giveaway there is still plenty of time.

Lovely!! There is something about a sea shell that makes us feel connected to the vast oceans just a bit.
