Hello my sweet friends,
I am back from my
However, I did not get caught in the rain or feel the ocean or make love on the dunes of The Cape, nor did I sip any champagne.
I did have a few margaritas, felt the cool clear lake and climbed some sand dunes! (Get it, all the references to the Pina Colada song? OK I didn't find a sense of humor on vacation but that's ok, I thought it was cute, maybe that is the half-of-brain part. :) )
Anyway, I had such an amazing two weeks sitting on the dock in the sunshine, going on boat rides, swimming and I actually read two books!! I don't read often but a good book on the dock with a Corona and lime and the sound of the waves and seagulls, well, it doesn't get any better than that.
I can't wait to show you some pics and tell you all about it! One of the best parts of my vacation was I got to meet another Bloggy friend!! Cathy from Check it Off vacations up there with her family and we were there the same time so we met up and had a great time!! She is one of the sweetest girls and her family is just amazing! I can't wait to share some pics with you!
Hopefully I will be able to that this week sometime but I have a lot to catch up on and I have to figure out why my cat is peeing all over the house, off to the vet tomorrow, and my daughter starts another sports camp and my computer is giving me attitude..ugh!
Back to reality!!
Before I left I did made something simple. I have seen these all over blogland and on Pinterest so I decided to make one myself.
Shell Shadow Box
I picked up a shadow box on sale at Hobby Lobby
painted it white and distressed it a bit.
Painted the inside gray and glued a few of the million shells that I have on.
I also glued some twine around the edge of the frame to give it a bit of detail.
Super easy project and I love the look of these.
I hope you have a wonderful week, it is going to be in the mid 90's here all week so we will be trying to find ways to stay cool.
The shark sheets came in while I was gone so now I can begin to start painting sometime, in the air conditioning of course. :)
Have a great week and I can't wait to see what you all have been up to!!!
