Tweezer Sister's organized seashells

You have got to remember the Tweezer Sisters. No? They call themselves the Sanibel Sisters but let me refresh your memory…. I originally met these gals at the lighthouse picking up mini shells with huge 14 inch tweezers and I then featured them on my post Full Moon Tweezers. They were back on the island (from CA) last week and I got to see all the shells they collected….. and organized.

I can’t tell you how jealous I was to see how tidy these girls were with their shell finds.

Can you believe all of the minis? And when I say minis…. I mean teeny, tiny minis….These are HORSE CONCHS just out of a dehydrated EGG CASING.

Want to see just how small these little guys are? Well, I’d say …only as big as Lincoln’s nose.

How about this tiny baby SEA URCHIN! Is there anything cuter?

Take a look at the tools they have for picking and cleaning shells. This is quite an operation!

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. There’s another Tweezer Sister in the making. Taylor is Sanibel Sister Judith’s adorable granddaughter with her own handy tweezers in hand with her shells that she collected….. and organized, of course.

So who are these amazing gals I got to hang out with? Linda, Judith, Debbie and Brenna- The Sanibel Tweezer Sisters.
