When I arrived in California I decided I wanted to start keeping sand from all the beaches that I traveled to see while in San Diego. However, I started to find that I had three large mason jars with sand from three different beaches and I had no place to display them in a way I wanted. They mason jars seem to be too large and I had way too much sand. So I started looking around my apartment wondering what I could use to store my beautiful sand.
When I noticed my test tubes and holder being displayed with my little curiosities on top of my bookshelf. I thought to myself why not! I have had my test tubes for two year and found no use for them. The test tubes are from Martha Stewart Halloween line and I go the test tube holder from ebay.
The great thing is I can keep all my sand displayed together and labeled with the beach name. I can also keep small little shells in the inside of each test tube. I love looking at the different coloration of the sand of each beach I have currently visited while in San Diego. I hope to expand my collection!
I love my little collection of curiosities.
I love finding cute little antiques and adding them to my collection.
I also have a test tube holder that I am currently using as a flower vase. How do you keep you sand keepsake?Stay Crafty!
