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 79 A Hui of Morepok


79/100 (NZD 31) It's usually called a parliament of owls, but these ones are a hui of morepork :) Thanks Barbara for the idea this morning! This awesome lady called in on her way past my repeat housesit, and we had a fun chat while I showed her the 78 shells so far...we were almost a gossip of mermaids (see Day 78) :) A hui is the Maori word for a social gathering. These ones are hanging out in a tree...and we get to have a cheeky peek at them, amongst the leafy branches. It looks like they just spied us spying at them :) 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. Moreporks are the only surviving species of owl in New Zealand. Their name is onomatopoeic: it is spelled and pronounced the way they sound. (Not sure if I can pronounce 'onomatopoeic' though :D) Clam Glam is a Shore Thing : a daily seashell painting constitutional. #onomatopoeic #100daysnz x #bluemind #100daysofblue
