Living in Spain and bringing up a Spanglish family during the current 'crisis' and trying various ways to make some 'dinero'. Enjoying life in the sun, crafting and blogging as much as possible.

She sells seashells by the sea shore and all things coastal

'She sells seashells by the sea shore and all things coastal' by Tiggaliggs

I have always been fascinated by the sea shore, from the power of the waves to the marine creatures such as sea horses and crabs. Seeing sand castles built on the beach by beach huts, getting sticky eating rock and feeling sand between your toes.
