We had been collecting items for a couple of years without a place to put them until we found the perfect item to display them on in my M-i-L's garage. There in the back corner of the garage was a wooden shelf with 48 compartments. Score! My M-i-l was happy to get it out of her garage, and we had a place to display our treasures and memories.
We pick up sand from different beaches we visit, feathers we find, pieces of driftwood, rocks, and shells.
One of our favorite things in the shark tooth we found on the beach ourselves.
