beach in a jar

shells in jar
When I went shopping with my friends (read the last post), we also stopped by the beach. Now those of you who have been following my blog for a while know how much I love the beach; I would spend everyday of my life there if I could. I collected some sand during our trip to bring a little of the beach into my room.  Here is the "beach in a jar".

If you want to make one also, you will need:
  • a glass jar  recycled from the pantry
  • sand  gathered at the beach
  • seashells  collected from many trips to the ocean

Fill your jar with clean, dry, sand.
