Share the Joy Thursday–A Mermaid Mandala

IMG_9879

I made a mandala to day from sea shells and flowers from around my house.

The yellow ones are from a little bouquet of flowers that decorated the guest room for my mom during her recent visit.

The shells were all gathered with my Mom when we visited the beach at Fort Desoto multiple times over our week.

The beach was the very best part of our time together.

Two happy beach bums were we !

The turquoise background and the shells also reminded me of my favorite Mermaid piece in the studio.

Together they make a pretty altar

dedicated to my love of my new seaside life

and to the joy of having my Mom visit my new home.
