Such an interesting collection with great texture, Mary! It's always good to dig into the archives occasionally....a real treasure trove is to be had there.

OMG, Mary. Look at all the new images on your gallery. Have I really been busy that long? HEHE!
I want to see each and every image today.
Well this one is great! Fantastic details and design.
And this is a whole new idea for me.
I have never heard of sand dollars before.
How are the used?

Thanks for commenting, Kiki!
I just discovered all kinds of things by looking up Wikipedia's definition of sand dollar. Here's the summarized info:
"The term sand dollar (or sea cookie or snapper biscuit in New Zealand, or pansy shell in South Africa) refers to species of extremely flattened, burrowing sea urchins belonging to the order Clypeasteroida."
I think sea cookie is the best name ~ it made me smile...:D
Thanks for all your comments yesterday!
