Jar Keepsake

Wow, March 1st is here and how time flies. With the calendar edging forward and signs of spring everywhere I started thinking about summer vacation. Should we travel to somewhere we have never been, return to an old favorite spot, or just stay home and explore those places right in our own back yard? Hmmmm, lots to ponder. 

Last year the entire family went together to the beach. We traveled caravan style with adults, kids, and dogs in toe and spent an amazing week together basking in the sun, eating way too much, and just enjoying each other's company. There were some first too. It was the first time my husband, I, and my granddaughter had been to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It was the first time we took our four legged children with us on vacation and it was the first time my granddaughter had ever experienced the ocean. 

I took a gazillion pictures and collected a lot of memorabilia 
and wanted to showcase them all in a unique way.


shells, beach rock, sand, ticket stubs, arcade coupons, more
