Call us the shell seekers!

My love of collecting shells has passed down to my children. I have a huge collection of shells, and we are working on a way to use them. Here are various shell wreaths in progress. Let us know what you think!

Our Crepe Myrtles

Our crepe myrtles provide such a beautiful canopy over our back patio.
Lots and lots of trimming make this possible. Nature, nature, nature...I'm always intrigued.

Another knitting project

Imade these for my sweet Sis in NC. I like the way they turned out and the buttons look nice with the yarn I chose. Next, I look forward to making my daughter a pair! Let me know what you think.

Boat-tail or Common Grackle

I just love watching these birds on the shore. Even though they don't look like they fit in with the gulls, terns, egrets, sandpipers, etc., these grackles just jump right in for the hunt just like the rest of them.

The name just suits these feathered creatures. There always seems to be at least one feather out of place and the way they move is just entrancing. They make me smile when I see them saunter in a sideways fashion along the shoreline.

Fun, fun, fun...

Time at the Beach!

Every year we head to North Carolina's coast to spend our vacation. This year, especially, with the economy the way it is made our time spent even more meaningful. I felt wonderfully blessed to have this time with my family. Words cannot express!

Enjoy the day...
