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.

Whiling Away in Paradise

And that is exactly what I have been doing! Whiling Away in my own little tropical paradise : )

Welcome to several new followers! I apologize for my absence. The truth is that I have been sick...AGAIN lol. But such is the life of someone with Lupus :) Be Strong and Carry On!

Thanks so much to my dear blog buddies who have sent emails, cards, and have connected with me on Facebook :) Ya'll mean the world to me!!!

You really can't keep a good girl down, so no matter my ills and pains... I still manage to putter around, have fun, play, joke, and laugh, and mess around with Facebook. ( well, except when I had pneumonia, pleurisy, and costochondritis all at the same time! eeek!) I just didn't feel like blogging or anything :(
BUT when I felt mediocre I was puttering around and workin' on Paradise, and I was of course taking pictures. ( well, except when I had pneu...oh, see above lol)

I knew I wanted to share this when I felt better, and that day is here!


I have had a LOT of fun playing with the shell arrangement! This big Murex is the one I got last year for my birthday from Momma P. This is a mixture of bought and found shells, with dried orchid blooms.


There was one person in particular I thought of, and think of when I play with/look at this.
So pretty with all the purples and whites.


The Scotch Bonnet was a Gulf find. I have found a few now, to date...but my hubby has found more than I have. He's a Scotch Bonnet Magnet!


Love that little white sharks eye with the purple spiraled center! See it? It's to the right of the orchid.


Yeah, those are hubby's worm shells! :P He's a magnet for those, too! I'm sure glad he's on My Team :)
It's a fair trade :) He gets to be on my team when it's Fend for Yourself night. hehehe


I 'borrowed' the urchins from my Christmas decorations.


Love this angle, too! That is an awesome wormey!


I've done quite a bit of rearranging my shells around the house. Project Paradise is a work in progress, but we are certainly getting there!

I'm looking forward to sharing it with you!

AND

I have been playing with another craft, and can't wait to share that, too!

Oh, it's SO good to be back! I've missed ya's so much!

Welcome back! I'm so glad you are feeling better! I must admit that I haven't been blogging or visiting much myself lately.

Look forward to seeing more of your fun and summery posts!

I'm so glad to hear you are doing better. I've noticed you've been gone awhile but wasn't sure if it was because you were ill. I love the centerpiece.
