I Heart Macro - Ocean & Etymology

I'm still working on beach/summer-themed projects so I busted out some of my bezel hoard stockpile and decided to work with old dictionary text and teenie, tinie seashells.  It's fun to flip through these vintage dictionaries...I love words.  It must be part of the etymology interest that comes from my Dad, the Latin teacher.  Isn't it appropriate that it's Father's Day?  :)  Hi, Daddy!!!  Love you!
It could be just the words, but the little tiny pictures are the best!   
I didn't use the peccary pig picture in these pendants because he didn't really go with the shells...
My little ocean words, though, worked wonderfully!

  5. I love the pendants and your photos of the words are wonderful (love old dictionary pages) but I really love the photo of the peccary pig! Throw some sunglasses on him and stick him on the beach, don't forget the sunscreen! :) Jen, have a great Sunday!

  13. Just beautiful! My friends and I have played a game for years (before the official board game came out) called Fictionary. It's so much fun finding interesting words.
