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.

I'm a Mermaid

Hello! I just wanted to pop in and welcome some new blog followers! I've been wanting to say hi to you all, so I thought I would do it first thing. Hi! Hello! and Welcome!

My hubby and I are getting ready to celebrate our 30th anniversary in a couple of weeks. Yeah, wow! I can't believe it has been 3 decades already! We always celebrate special occasions at the beach, and go as often as time allows in between.

Guess what the 30th anniversary gift is???? Pearls!!!! I know! Isn't that so cool! He said he'd gladly by me a strand of pearls....for jewelry making! He already bought pearls for my neck, wrist, and ears. He used to buy me pretty, pretty jewelry to go with special occasions. NOT ANY MORE! He said the stuff I make is prettier than anything he could ever buy for me. Isn't he so sweet?!

I took the Mermaid Name Generator test over at Rum and Monkey, to see what my mermaid name is. I did it twice, for Tropical, and Mediterranean mermaid. Both times I got the name Pearlia. So, Pearlia it is! I love it, and it is so me! I found the name generator from Gypsea Nurse.

Look at these art prints of mermaids wearing pearls I found on Etsy!




Each one is linked directly to the Etsy shop it is from.

Which is your favorite? What is your mermaid name?

I'm off to play with some pearls!

Love,
Pearlia aka Del

Happy 30th Anniversary - ya'll got a pretty good start on things.

You know what they say about mermaids - Poor Mermaid - not enough woman to love - too much fish to fry :D

Take good care,

Pearlia — what a perfect mermaid name for you!

Congratulations on your 30th anniversary, sounds like you found the perfect merman to spend your life with. May you swim the sea together for many more years to come!

Love all the mermaid art, but the first is my fav; it has such a dreamy quality to it.

Oh yes! Mermaids, pearls, and shells are my favorite things. My husband and I celebrate 32 years this month, and like you I can't believe it.
I'm off to find my Mermaid name.
Happy Shelling!
