I wanted to show you my favorite Mother's Day gift.
We saw this seashell necklace at a yard sale for fifty cents. I nudged my husband until he got the hint!
When I inspected it more closely Sunday, I discovered that the chain is actually 14k gold.
Of course Andrew and I had to have a mini-lesson on shell identification using one of our nature guides. We call this "solving the mystery" by looking for clues. Using a magnifying glass only adds to the excitement!
As part of the bookcase decluttering, I was able to move all our natural history books to the study. This little bamboo shelf was the perfect holder for the small guides.
