I've been collecting seashells for as long as I can remember. From east to west, coast to coast, and shore to shore, I always find a treasure to keep, and adore.

Seashell Saturday

My external hard drive is missing, meaning, I have misplaced it. I always, I mean always, put it back in a drawer with my other computer equipment, and I didn't, and now I can't find it. I'm thinking it may have fallen behind my drawer stack. I was counting on my photos on the hard drive for my post. Instead, I snapped a quick photo of a tablescape on a wall/sofa table in the dining room.
These are shells we have picked up in tourist shops while on our anniversary beach get-aways. David gave me the shell rose bud as a gift, and I picked up the candles at Belk a few years ago. I added a few of our own shells to the candle vases. The cut center of the conch shell ( the pink spiral in the center) came from Virgina beach about 20 or so years ago. We acquired all of the mother of pearl shells here at home, in Florida. They are from more recent anniversary trips :D

And the shell frame....... I made it from jingles! It's not very fun to dust, but I love this frame! The photo is old, and horribly outdated. I don't even resemble the woman in the photo anymore, although, it was only about 2 and a half years ago!

My lovely green pearls came, and they are not quite the color I was expecting, so it's back to the drawing board on my bracelet. I'll be making a lot of jewelry once I'm back in my studio, and everything is exactly where it belongs!

I apologize for a cop out post, but I'm hoping to be more organized next week. And to see why I'm so unorganized right now, you can read about it here. There will be a follow-up!

I'm off to pick out some carpet!

Have a wonderful, sunny, shell-y Saturday!

I read your comment about the Silver River state park...I didn't realize you lived that close to Ocala! If I hear about any festivals like this again, I'll let you know in a comment on your blog. We had already planned to go to the park and THEN found out the festival was taking place on the day we were going...just luck! I wish we had a good website that had all the events in our area! If I ever find one of those, I'll let you know that, too! Have a good week! Hugs, Diane

Your shells are so pretty! I zoomed the picture and that rose is amazing!

Also wanted to say hello and thanks for stopping by my blog today. The kitty litter containers are terrific for storing stuff! Not to mention, they are stackable! I just need to make them prettier - the OCD in me is bothered by the labels!!! : )
