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.

Jingle Shell Rock

Okay.....you HAD to know! You had to!

How could I NOT put jingle bells in jingle shells???
Jingle Shell, Jingle Shell, Jingle Shell Rock.....jingle around the block!

I bought several sizes of jingle bells in silver, and gold....

Aren't those pretty button pearls?!

The silver bell jingles have dark, dark cherry button pearls...and they are tiny!
The gold bell jingles have dark magenta button pearls, and they are a little bigger.
Perfect colors for Christmas, too!


All of you shellers out there know I took my nail file to these shells. They needed a little help being closer to the same shape! They didn't need much help...just a smidge here and there!

I'm still playing....or rather, I'm BACK to playing! or will be as soon as my tree is finished... I will be back in my crafty space! I have more jingle ideas floating around!

Yesterday was a total wash....well not totally...I did have a sale! WooHoo!
I didn't work on my tree yesterday, I went grocery shopping. UGH! NOT my favorite thing to do!
When I got home, I checked Etsy, and had to wrap up a package and head to the post office :D

 It is a hot cocoa kind of day today. I may even have to turn on the heat! I am freezing! I'm going to go make another cup of cocoa, and try to warm up! I know it's not THAT cold, but it's cold to ME! I'm an orange juice drinking Florida wussie!

Is it cold or snowy where you are?

Stay warm!

Cute cute cute! Jingles are getting harder to find. There was a day there were so many I stopped picking them up. It took me a year to gather enough orange jingles for my mermaid mosaic.

Della you're amazing!! Beautiful!!

It is really cool here in VA...after a week of 70 degrees, this 50 (or cooler) rainy day is miserable!!

You are so CLEVER! Another fab idea. Did you ever notice that you smile when you say JINGLE??

whenever someone wears those they will jingle!

It's not really cold here in Charlottesville. It's been warm(70s) over the past few days. I'm looking forward to some snowy weather so I can get into my christmas season.
