Colorful Seashells

My dear mother has been unwell for some time
so my little man colored a few seashells for his Gamma to help her feel better.


The shells are a simple project for a child 
but my son thoroughly enjoyed himself while coloring them.

I had some seashells saved up from a trip I took to Florida some years ago
and the jar is a spice jar I saved.


He used regular markers
and wrote "I love you" on a strip of paper which we glued onto the jar.


We then tied some lace around the top because he and I know Gamma loves her lace :)


Simple, yet heartfelt.
A delightful and colorful pick-me-up for someone you love.



Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day.

So sorry to hear your Mother isn't feeling well, as a mother and grandmother I know this will make her feel better at once. Love the shells, he did a good job painting them.

This is such a sweet, lovely idea. You and your son are so thoughtful. I pray your mother gets to feeling better and is alright.

You always have something so sweet to share... I love shells so much, and adding color to them makes them even more beautiful. We might be going to the coast this week... the last time, there weren't many shells when we went combing, but if I find some good ones I would love to color them like this :)

And I also wanted to thank you so much for your kindness and the sweet comment you left me when I got back from my trip. What you said was truly meaningful to me♥

Blessings and hugs, Stephanie, and I hope you are having a wonderful week!

These are beautiful shells. Your son did a wonderful job. How did he color them (i.e. paint? markers?) I know they were a pick-me-up for your mom. I hope by now she is feeling much better.
