For the past few years I have been purchasing coastal and beach ornaments and finally have enough to decorate a full tree. Although its not as "full" as I would like, I am sure between now and this time next year...I will accumulate even more coastal ornaments.
A friend of mine does a lot of hand painting and is a great artist! She took some genuine sand dollars and handpainted beach scenes onto them for me. She did a fabulous job and I like how she did the painted design across the entire front of each 4" to 5" diameter sand dollar. I am not a great decorative painter but as you can see...she is!
