Etoiles de la Mer!

One of these things is not like the others ~ I took some tiny star fish gathered from my travels to Tarpon Springs, FL tourist trap called the sponge docks. They sell all sorts of shells, sharks teeth, and sponges there. I pained the dainty etoiles with white paint, then applied white german glass glitter, and finally glued a ribbon tie. These little babies can be hung from various creative places. Quite a handful I must say.

I love this vintage brooch.
Makes me want to go to the beach!

I'm having those same longings!! Gotta get a beach fix really soon or my mermaid tail might dry out!! I'm heading to S. FL in about a month and praying there's no oil....would like to go on down to Naples, too.

Love the brooch and glittery etoiles!!
