Sand Dollars and Sea Horses

DSCN2759

I finally found a piece of tan velvet mat board to put these on.

In 1961 we went on a trip to Florida. We collected sand dollars and Mama got  couple of dried sea horses. I remember she made a purse with glued on sea shells. She used it in the summer for years. I found these in her china cabinet and remembered them. The scrap of newspaper was dated 1961. If she had them for over 50 years I was going to do something with them. I had a shadow box frames and they all fit. Now to find the right background for them. I will hot glued them down. And it will be ready to hang.DSCN2757
