more nautical babies

Buying the starfish (see the latest post) was a real exception cos i definitely prefer to find the nautical miniatures that Mother Nature washes up on our shores. All for free, and whit out killing the animals that used to live in them.  

All that's needed is to look for them. On your knees or flat on the stomach, at least with the nose down. Some days are better then others, pending on the winds and tide. Fortunately the North Sea was very generous the other day.

She gave the more common types of shells, that already overflow my stockroom. But nature had more in store... and washed up the most brittle skeletons i know; sea urchins!! Easily missed when you walk the beach, but thank god I'm near sighted :D 

Enjoy and have a great (miniature) day
