we've been back from our dreamy beach vacation since early june. and all this time there's been a big tupperware container full of sand sitting on our cluttered kitchen counter. i finally figured out what to do with it.
we collected it to remember the incredibly beautiful white sand beaches that we enjoyed so much. it was the kids' first trip to the ocean and one of our most relaxed and wonderful family vacations.
(i love this picture. it has such a great burning man feel to it.)
i sifted through the refrigerator for nearly-empty or expired foods and then the kids and i went to work.
we selected our favorite beachy images, then filled the jars with sand and special shells.
now we have a piece of our vacation on display. they're like our own little worlds.
i left my lid plain, but the kids affixed shells to their creations. magical.
