West Coast beach finds on the mantel. I so wish there were sand dollars to collect on our beaches. They are such perfect little creatures. Chris and I were very excited to find three in good shape, but the kids were distracted by parachuters landing on the sand. It is impossible to get a kid to slow down for more than a second on a new beach. So much to explore! Ada will notice the sand dollars in her room some day and be as excited as we were.
I first read about Tail of the Yak on the Oh Happy Day! blog. Jordan described it as her favorite store, (which is saying a lot because her blog is so lovely). I was so excited to visit on a trip out West last week. The tiny store has been in the same spot for 40 years, and it was even better than I had imagined. It is magical and beautiful and ethereal. ..Here are some treasures:Tiny Glass Flowers and Birds, $8 per bunch. I have been making child-sized crowns and these will be perfect for them. Little Metal Bird Pins, $.75 each. Cheap and adorable!Leaf and Star Straight Pins, $4 each. This packaging is almost too amazing to use them, but I can’t wait to start a sewing project! I also think they would be perfect on a bulletin board.
I am missing the West Coast already!
