Fruit de Mer on a Wreath

I just love how lots of locals use "fruits of the sea" on their wreaths. Certainly, in Victorian times, people would have used whatever was available to them in the local vicinity to decorate for the holidays, and some carry on the tradition today. And I bet that if you look inside their homes, you'll find a starfish on top of the tree instead of an electric star. Who knows, maybe the first start on top of a tree really was a starfish. And sea grass for tinsel. Anyway, I like the look. Well done, house on 6th Street.
