Saturday Scavenger Hunt : CHIPPED




This Week's Theme: Chipped


























These are chipped sea shells.

My mother gave this to me some years ago. I think more than 5 years already.

This shells came from one of the provinces here in the Philippines which is in LEYTE. She went there for a short vacation and this is her pasalubong or souvenir for me as she came back here in our place.

My mother knows how I love to collect things a lot such as stamps, stationery, etc. And she also knows that I'd love to make some creative stuffs like making my-own-style bracelets or earrings.

I always had plan to use this shells in making such fashionable-creative stuffs but it ended up stuck in the Tupperware where I put them.

Yes, I know there nice and very pretty shells but I don't have any time even to make one.

But I'm glad and amazed that when I open the Tupperware earlier, it's still the way how it looks just like I saw this some years ago.

Your shells are such a beautiful color. They remind me of food. At first glance, I thought they were edible.

At first glance I thought it was a picture of corn flakes - lol.
I like how some of them have a ghost face like marking on them. I wonder what made these marks on them. Very fascinating - thanks for sharing

Wow! Those are shells of great potentials then... there's still time enough to use them I suppose. Especially since summer is fast approaching hehe... I'm sure those would make for a cool necklace with a matching bracelet and perhaps earrings for when you hit the beach? :)
