Clam Glam is a Shore Thing: 100 Days of Painting on Seashells

All Days | Day by Day | Author Login

Adopt-a-Shell: Give a Former Tiny House, a New Home. Each of these seashells was once home to a little creature, on the shores of, or on the bottom of local coastal waters. Now each of them has been given a fresh coat of interior decoration, with their outsides left mostly untouched, showing the story and beauty of where they have been. If you would like to give one a loving home, or if you know someone who would be thrilled to have them, please: click on your favourite shells and find out their story and adoption details. Proceed portions go to marine education, conservation and research. Postage is free. (Sometimes a few requests for the same shell are received, so I will request payment only from the person who 'got' the shell. Thank you xo)

Day 43 Ouch. !!


43/100 This is a story about today's flight. Pretty sure I was the 0.5% of passengers (1 in 200) who had a pair of little energetic feet repeatedly kicking my lower back. I decided to ignore it, and with my head lowered resignedly, muttered to my friend, 'it's only a short flight.' In the next split second I lifted my head only to be immediately smacked in my forehead by a whirling backpack bungee cord (the thing you pull to tighten your bag opening). The guy had no idea as he sat down while we burst out laughing while I held my noggin in my hands. #100daysproject #100daysnz
