Twinkle twinkle, little starfish

The other day on our walk we ran into a couple massive starfish pockets. We are used to finding "pockets of shells" washed up on shore, but this was unlike anything we'd seen before. By the end of the walk we had more starfish than shells!

The first pocket was unusually close to our house and cove, in the past we walk probably four blocks distance before we find any shells. These starfish were within two blocks of the house.

It went on like this almost the entire length of the beach, one mile. At first we were picking them all up, but when we got them home some were just too beat up to keep, here's half our final haul.

Many other treasures were found as well, it was a really good beach combing day.

When we got home, I made us smoothies and then we got busy, painting and puttering, by the end of the afternoon, we had some great new decorations.

Some of our painted bottles worked, some didn't. We have since looked up the recipe for Mod Podge, and will try painting the bottles again.

Puppies, always want to be where the action is...

I'm going to cut this post short, because the Internet is acting up, and it's too frustrating. But know this, we are always doing and trying new things. I will try to share as much here as I can, so stay tuned, the adventure continues!


  1. On the clear bottles and glass use elmers glue and food coloring to make them look like sea glass.

  2. Were the starfish alive and now they are not?
