Title: A Beachcomber's Tree

Member: Shell hunter

Description: We visited the "point" for the first time a few weeks ago. I randomly collected treasures that "caught my eye". When I spread everything out to admire and show my family...I instantly knew what to do with them!

Thanks for all of the great comments! I did, in fact, make Christmas Cards using this photo...they turned out really nice. I think what I love most, about my Beachcomber Tree, is how spontaneous it was! If I had been looking for certain items...the perfect piece of driftwood to use for the tree trunk, a sea star for the topper, the red "stuff" for branches or the sea glass and chunk of barnacle for ornaments...I would NEVER have found them ALL on just one beach walk! I guess it was just....meant to be! I will ALWAYS remember our 1st visit to the Point!

I have found all of the same items on the beaches in Avon over the last few visits but never thought of putting them together to make anything like this...thanks for the idea for next time. Love your tree, my favorite entry.
