For this year's Holiday Release, I've teamed up with Shell Maps by Donna... my Mom! What began as a love of collecting shells on family beach trips evolved into creating her signature oyster shell souvenirs. Donna's ornaments feature maps of favorite beach towns and happy places.
I SAW THREE SHIPS COME SAILING IN...
For our collaboration, we designed oyster ornaments with prints of my coastal mini collages. I painted tiny originals to fit inside an oyster shell - making sure the seersucker texture would show.
FIVE GOLDEN BLINGS
It was too hard to choose just 1 image - so we made a set of 5. The set is perfect to hang on your tree, use as luxe gift tags, or give the gift of art to your golden girls.
OH WHAT FUN...
it is to plan christmas on a hot day in August. My Mom and I began work on these ornaments over the summer. We went shell hunting around the Lowcountry and Grand Strand and ate our share at oyster roasts. We recycle unused shells to South Carolina Department of Natural Resources for oyster reef restoration.
THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...
This project was so much fun because it really did include all my favorite things like art making, going to the beach, family time, oyster roasts, and the holidays.
Maybe we share some of the same favorite things?
Or are you more of a "schnitzel with noodles" person?
Wishing you a Season worth Shellabrating... with a seersucker bow on top!
