Do you see what I see?

The perfect beach with shells

Thousands of purrfect KITTEN PAW SHELLS!

Collecting kitten paw shells on Sanibel Island

These sweet little KITTIES washed up on the sand bar at Blind Pass yesterday waiting to be adopted (errr I mean collected) for a good home. Here Kitty Kitty Kitty Kitty!

Meow! Kittens paw shells

Aha- And I know what I “knead” to do with them. I love this idea!

Charlotte P. shared a photo of her KITTEN PAW creation on iLoveShelling Facebook page and said…

My two nieces, my sister and I collected kitten paw shells at Blind Pass this past June. They were so plentiful, that we just scooped handfuls of them into our shell bag. I made these 9-inch trees using about 460 shells each. Now we will always remember our fun summer day every Christmas! …use Michael’s stryo cones, sort shells according to size. I used the largest on the bottom. (The shells that are still hinged together are too thick. Also, the really curved ones don’t work either. ) Shove the shell into the cone until secure. Take it out, insert hot glue and jam it into place. Repeat about 459 or so times!”

Kittens Paw Christmas Tree Shell Craft

Our kitties PuppyCat and Dustie are already in the holiday spirit dressing in ShellElf hats to match their mom so I’m sure they would love to help me. They love craft time.

Want more? Take a walk on the beach with me to see the shells, waves, water and listen to the jingle of the shells against the surf…. and be amazed at the oodles of KITTENS PAWS (and itty bitty orange ROUGH SCALLOP I couldn’t resist). Here’s a video! (sorry if the vid looks a little “fuzzy” right now- I hope it clears up)

Meowy Christmas!

calm day at the beach

With the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it’s nice to have just a calm quiet moment on the beach.

Finding a few shells along the way makes the moment even more special.

Running across creative seashell beach art is the icing on the caked sand.

Fabio M. posted a picture on the iLoveShelling Facebook page of their exshellent Sanibel version of a Snow Globe. Fabio and his wife made Sandy the Shellman (his new name!) mostly out of ARKS, CALICO SCALLOPS, DOSINIAS, SLIPPERS,and JINGLES… and a PEN SHELL nose.

After admiring their beach art masterpiece, I made up a song to commemorate Sandy The Shellman…

 Sandy, the Shell Man was so happy he could yell

With a SLIPPER scarf and a PEN shell nose

And two eyes of JINGLE shells

O, Sandy the Shell Man

Was alive on Sanibel

On this sunny day, he could laugh and play

As we all do as we shell.

Their seashell beach art warms the heart…

I hope they don’t mind but it looks like the Seashell Fairy left a few additions to their art.
