Hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was a blast. The weather was amazing. I ended up going all over the place- down the coast to San Diego, Solana Beach, and then yesterday to Old Town Orange, and of course around ol’ Irvine. Spent some time with good friends and also did quite a bit of slightly unnecessary… um… shopping (oops!)- The shells above were just one part of my adventures in reckless retail…I’ve been collecting pieces for a project for the next j3 zine, and shells are to be a big part of it. Found this local store in Huntington Beach, called California Sea Shell Company (they actually have three locations in OC). They had everything I was looking for. It’s always incredible the amount of inspiration that can be found in shells.
