Even though we live near the beach and have more shells than we know what to do with, I still enjoy walking new beaches to see different types of shells. The shells found below are only about 45 miles up the coast, but quite different in color than the shells on our local beach. Deep, rich indigo blues are a reoccurring theme on Amelia Island, FL. I love the color and texture of these shells and they inspire me to dig through my yarn stash and find similar colors. Quite lovely, don't you think!
