Sand Dollar Ornaments

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Sand Dollars make great ornaments, if you don't break them.  Growing up, we had various sand dollars on our tree, from plain white to ones with something festive painted on them.  Yesterday I tried to be an artist.  First I painted one red, and then tried to paint a sea urchin on another - they look horrible.  Then, I stumbled upon the Bald Head Island Emblem used for the island.  And, for some reason I could paint it well enough to know what it was.  Take a look.

So, I then decided to try it on some sand dollars.  I know what it is, and I think at least my family will too.

December in Coastal North Carolina has been lovely.  And, this weekend is no different.  Lucky for me, I have spent most of it on the water.  Success in finding shells and trout was in order, and so was capturing some great moments.

Visiting Pelican; perhaps to steal our trout.

I hope your weekend has been as enjoyable wherever you may be.
