    i love sand dollars.
    i can never find them intact.
    they are always in pieces.
    liz elayne l. sent me a sand dollar last fall
    and it was TOTALLY in one piece…
    through the mail and everything.
    love your thinking
    sand princess!

    how beautiful to bring some of the outside in.

    i don’t think i’ve ever actually seen a sand dollar fresh from the sand before. i’ve only seend ones that have been prettied up to be paper weights or ornamental things.

    how lovely!
