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 7 The hills are alive


7/100 (NZD 24.90) A few scenes are etched in my mind from yesterday's morning surf mission, while traveling between beaches in convoy with fellow surf mermaids. This one is of the hills poking out from a fog blanket (which is natural coloration of the shell) which I managed to drink in while coming around a bend, on my way from the first beach where it was way too big, wild and messy, to the next more sheltered beach. There's been a few broken leashes and fins from people who were surfing at the more sheltered beach. How is this home-related? I'm lucky to call this area my current home ground. Love this shell, and want to give it a new home? Send an email (Subject: Seashells) to AdoptASeashell@gmail.com to find out more details. Orders are on a first-come, first-served basis. You will be sent payment information only if you got the shell.
