I live by the seaside

pia jane bijkerk recently posted her rather lovely evolving wreath which inspired me to take a picture of the seaweed wreath I made last year. The most beautiful frilly seaweed washed up on our beach, with tiny little berries attached. I picked up a few strands, let them dry, and twisted them into a wreath-shape. A few stitches with needle and cotton kept it together. Then I stuck on seashells I had collected, and backed the whole thing with cardboard to keep the round shape when hung. Last year Christmas I spray-painted it white - and used as a front door decoration. I took the other three pictures on the same beach.
