My Caribbean treasures

I lost a bet with our tour guide at the Virgin Gorda Baths in Tortola on this leaf's origin. He said it was a sea grape leaf and I said it could not be a grape leaf, it came from huge trees on the island. From his smile I thought he was teasing me but he wasn't, those trees produce sea grapes and the islanders make wine from them. The shells and sea glass are from Shell Beach on St. Barth's, oh what a grand time we had. I put these on my pool's edge for this photo, guess I'm yearning to be back on the beach, ha. I'll fill in my 365 calendar with vacation photos over the next few days!
A lovely collection of treasures.

@onewing @beryl @annied @kwind @lynnz @gaylewood @milaniet @littleconnie @henrir @pdulis @ziggy77 @happysnaps Thank you so much for your lovely comments and favs. It's always a thrill to be on the PP. I always come back from vacations with little natural items, sticks , feathers, and I keep them forever. I'm afraid the leaf will not last though. The shells surely will.

Great collection and interesting info on the leaf. I love to collect shells, so shell beach sounds like a great place to me.

**I LOVE THIS**!! I'm delighted to read that you brought all this home! Why not go to a frame shop (Michael's, perhaps, and get your discount coupon...) and see if that leaf can't be mounted within a shadowbox frame. I'd lay those pieces on it in this same fashion and secure them... That would easily last for your lifetime! It's so natural and gorgeous! Good luck!

@Weezilou I had already thought I needed to do that with these little treasures! "Great minds" and all that. Thank you for your encouragement!
