Muddle

collection of shells and coral

walk by lake or sea

to calm the mind and spirit

beachcombing works well

As I get into a frenzy of creativity, creating patterns and people with shells, my collection gets in a right old muddle – they need sorting out again.

Using a bit of poetic licence here to meet our One-a-Week Photo Challenge Prompt: Regal

I was trying to make a tealight holder out of used teabags that was not so BROWN.

After painting it with white Gesso it somehow said ‘Christmas’ to me, so I painted the inside with some gold paint, a few dots around the outside and then it said ‘CROWN’.

AbuDhabishells

shell from Abu Dhabi

All these shells and pieces of coral were collected in Abu Dhabi in January 2014.

Two weeks of warm sunshine, sitting on the beach, wandering slowly along the shoreline, knitting, reading and arranging shells ……. ah! ………… sigh …….

You might recognize some pieces that have been used in my shell pictures.

combining with

Ronovan’s weekly Haiku Challenge: TOUCH and MISS

I could happily spend days arranging collections of objects in an orderly fashion – how about you?

It has been so good to do this Round-Up – a great way to catch up with all the wonderful entries. Thank you so much to all of you who have entered a photo. Please let me know if I have missed any – August skidded by and I was pedalling hard to keep up.
