" Island " Roses

On one of my trips to the island of Maui, I wandered into a store called " Totally Hawaiian ".

What drew me into this shop was something in the window display.

The something was the vivid colors of pink, purple, yellow, and red.

As I walked closer, I realized these roses were not roses at all, but seashells.

I am always inspired by a person's ability to take something ordinary and turn it into something extraordinary.

"It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see. "
                 ~Henry David Thoreau

Dearest Mo,

These Hawaiian roses are incredible! Some people have an almost genius idea indeed. They are lovely...

Lots of love,

These are stunning. As I looked a bit closer, they were a little shiny and I thought they were glass. Shells! They're incredible!

I almost did not believe that the roses were not real......so delicate looking, even the shading of the colors is realistic looking. I appreciate you sharing this with us and the quote is one that I hope to put into my heart. You will laugh but my husband always tells people that here in west Texas, you look farther than you can see......

I'm a bit slow Mo - are you saying those gorgeous roses aren't roses at all - that they are seashells? That is one of the most amazing and beautiful displays I've ever seen. Thanks for sharing. sandie
