Decorating with Gifts from Nature

An old night light that I covered in mother of pearl and various shells.

I love the way it glows.

Wishing you all a beautiful weekend . . .

Hi Nancy,
What a wonderful post to remind us of the natural beauty found all around us, it gives life to a home. I love what you've created with the shells. Simply gorgeous!

Thank you for coming by the Paris party. It is a blast though I am sooooo tired having spent my last day at school a little longer than I thought. I came home to try to be present at my own party but WOW it is fun but I am bushed! I just wanted to come by to thank you for coming....oh how I love shell! Time to whip mine out for the season! LOVE YOU! Anita

Hello Nancy,
Hope summer is off to a wonderful start in your household! I am enjoying a beautifully warm day of sunshine after a weekend of rain, rain, and rain. Loved the storms with loads of lightning, but am loving the sun to dry everything out. I believe our corn grew six inches today alone. Wet ground, plus plenty of sunshine equals happy crops.

Hope you enjoyed that trip to the beach. What I wouldn't give to see the ocean right now! Enjoy it enough for the both of us!
