Christmas Project started today
Let me start by saying I love Christmas. Last year I put up 8 full size trees throughout the house. This year I want to do a shell tree, with a nod to my Great Aunt Rosemary. All the shells, collected from many years of snow-birding, were bought at her auction last year. She is in her nineties, and has moved out of the big house into a care facility. I was born on her birthday, which thrilled my mother. I bought florist wire to hot glue shells onto, which will stick out of the tree, like bursts. The bigger shells will be hung like regular ornaments, and a huge starfish will be the topper. I got about two dozen glued, a few hundred more to go.
