I love the beach and St. Petersberg is the ultimate beach for me. It’s quiet and goes on for miles. I loved walking barefoot down the sandy shore and collecting shells (Check out the project I did with shells here!) I imagine myself doing this everyday someday. I was able to let go of all my anxieties and blockages here and just be. It was the most peaceful and grounded I’ve felt in a while. These are a few of my favorite images that remind me of that feeling.
So I just spent a week at the beach in Florida and several mornings I went out early to collect shells. I even used my tote that I painted to keep them in and it worked perfectly!
I love the varied shapes and sizes of the shells and found that I even like the imperfect ones; isn’t that just life. I spray painted the shells gold and silver and used a jar from our wedding to hold them in the bathroom.
