.:The Love for seashells and stuff:.

Hi!
I usually complain about my bad memory and so on, but I've come to realize
this is partually not true at all!
Some things just stick! I have a really crazy memory of stones, shells and sand?!
All around our house I have small (or large if you ask my husband) groups of memories in Bowls and on trays...
Just to show how weird my memory about this is I'll show you below:
(and still I can't remember the grocery list without writing it down)
2 kg sand from Venice beach, California 2017.
Shells and corals from Fort Lauderdale, Florida 1982.
(I've saved them since I was 6 years old)
 
Corals from Florida, USA 1983 + 2002
Shells from Canary Island and Cyprus, Greece.
Some of them handpicked and the rest baught from a souvenir shop on the baech.
(couldn't resist them)
 
Some of my favorites!
All the large White ones (5kg total) from Koh Phangan, Thailand 2005.
I found them the first week out of a total of five weeks vacation and had to carry them in my backpack for all the rest of our stay. SO Worth it! :)
 
This cutie is from when I was seven. I picked it with my dad a early morning i Florida 1983.
He understood my love for Seashells and took me to the beach early in the morning before anyone else was awake. Best time of day to find gorgeous ones!
 
My last pic is a mixture of memories...
The fine sand up on the left is from my favorite Island in the Swedish archipelago.
Sand up on the right is from the Island Kefalonia, Greece. Myrtos Beach.
This perticular beach was nominated one of the seven most Beautiful beaches in the World.
The Shells in the Little glass jar are mini ones from Fort Lauderdale 1982-1983.
In front a mixture of Florida, Greece, Mallorca, spain P
ortugal and Thailand. And a part from a necklace oni top.
The White Starfish is a "fake" one. I just really liked them so they got a place there too.
 
So.. In conclusion of the memory I have of each and every one of theese small handpicked memories, I've come to realize that if it's a thing adored I will remember it.
If not such as as grocery list or watering a plant... My mind is just not there! ;)
 
Weird how the mind works!
Sorry I took so much of your time! ;)
But thanks alot for stopping by.
 
Wish you all a really great day!
Hugs from me
/Karin
