This week our challenge at Tuesday Alchemy is "Surf Sea and Sand." I have been looking forward to this challenge for quite a while now. I love the ocean. It is my favorite place to go when I need to de-stress. So many happy memories of times spent with my daughters collecting shells, making sandcastles, watching the waves crashing into rocks, the cool breeze against our faces and all the seagulls flying above us. My grandmother lived by the ocean and she was only a stones throw away from the beauty of it all. It was heaven on earth.
My precious girls would sit on the sidewalk in front of grandma's house facing each other, legs slightly apart and feet not quite touching. Grandma would give them a metal container to roll back and forth to each other. They giggled and talked and with each roll back and forth they were getting closer and closer to their reward - HOME MADE ICE CREAM.
So many memories ago and all of it a blessing.
And so dear friends, I hope you will join in the challenge with us at Tuesday Alchemy. And I not only want to see your creations I would love to hear about a special memory you have about times spent by the ocean.
My project this week has touched something deep within me and I treasure it all. Maybe it's because its a simple image which pulls me in and allows all these memories to come to the surface. I hope your project touches something deep and meaningful within you too.
With hugs and smiles,
