Each time you visit the shores of the world, lying in wait is Natures gift. You may see it as a grouping of shells,but in truth it`s a Mosaic presented to you on every tide.
As a child you marveled at their shape size and color and set them in a place of honor on a shelf.
Then one day they spoke form that place of honor and became a flower which grew into the Mosaic`s of today.
That is the History of Sailors Valentines from those who have collected Natures gift and continue to set them in a place of honor.
On Tuesday, December 30th I will be giving a slide show presentation on the History of Sailors Valentines at the Bailey-Matthews Museum see: http://www.shellmuseum.org/ for details.
