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.

Sneak Peek

I'm so sorry to have to subject you to me learning a new camera :(
But it is what it is.

I'm actually thinking of making a little cheat sheet with the settings on it :P
At least until I learn them all. I have already deleted the blurs, or most of them anyway.

Sooooo until I figure this lil Fuji out, bear with me....

my walls are much more of a coral or pink grapefruit tone, not this pumpkin orange!
 Hubby put the mini Santa hat on the mermaid lol. He thought I would take it down, but I'm leaving it.
It came from a little stuffed Kermit the Frog the kids got at McDonald's MANY years ago. During the summer when our granddaughter was here (she's 13) she asked me why none of my mermaids wear tops. I told her that REAL mermaids DON'T wear tops LOL!!!!! I'm pretty sure she rolled her eyes at me :D


Remember my tablescape last year? I'm still working on it, and I added the blue glitter icicles to my branches.


I'm still working on this...my stockings keep falling off no matter what tape or adhesive strips I use.
Last year the stockings hung behind the tree.


A good friend gave me some garlands, and I added some of my Giant Atlantic Cockles to it to make it fit my theme.


I love this!


I have some more garlands to adorn with shells, too.


This is a little different from last year, also.

 



I did take some close ups of my tree, but they were horrible. I will get better pics! Kyle had the blinds closed because he was playing a video game. It makes a world of difference having them open, let me tell ya! Next time...!

I will be working on getting this wrapped up TODAY! I want it done, and I want my craft room back. I have crap everywhere! So much that I have no space to work :(

Are you decking the halls and walls? Are you finished? I sure wish I was!

I think your photos are great, Della. It's hard to take anything that has lights on it! And I'm so glad you found pretty spots for the garland. You have such a beautiful home. I see the lamps in there, too! Enjoy your day! More beautiful weather for us! Sweet hugs!

Your tree looks great! I'm trying to figure out the best way to take pictures of my tree. Whenever I do it comes out super blurry.

Your house looks great! So cozy! I especially love the stockings surrounding the TV. The hat on the mermaid is pretty smart. And of course, everyone knows that the real mermaids don't wear shirts!

I love all the beachy decorations! The peacock feathers are awesome.

I've started on my house. One tree up and one more to go.
