My Mom Collects Sand From Beaches All Over The World

My Mom Collects Sand From Beaches All Over The World

Chamaleon Report

Jim Price 1 year ago

My parents collected shells for decades. When they stopped beach combing in their later years, my mother donated almost all of them to her church. One of the other church members converted a cheap mirror into a beautiful showpiece with a number of them. My mother bought it and it hung in their entry way for years. A cousin now owns that piece.
