Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone has a nice relaxing day tomorrow. And remember to be thankful for all that you have. I am most thankful for my wonderful, and large, family and friends. Here are some photos of the people I love. Please excuse the quality!

Here is my new cool french door. Guess where I found it...yes, craigslist. I'd like to start off by thanking my husband who never fails to put up with my strange requests. There are a couple of you out there who know the real french door story but we can just keep that to ourselves ok ;)
It needs a new handle and minor paint touch-up's but I think it adds quite a bit of character to our tiny condo.
So, this is definitely turning into more of an everything blog than a shell blog. I just have so many things I like to do! I see all these great ideas and I can't help but try some of them. Not only that but my wonderful mother is famous for saying, "we can make that" about almost everything....I guess it wore off on me:)
Well, here are some photos of what I have been up to. My awesome friends Carolyn and Albert got me a great chair from craigslist that I was in love with. Here it is below - I am working on re covering it but I haven't had the chance yet. This is also a before picture of our lamp. I recovered the shade with red silk for Christmas.
I have also been covering cheap picture frames with fabrics I got on sale when Joanne's moved.
I put this picure in just because I like this part of my room. I am going for an islandy feel :) Those are shells on the dresser if you can't tell - big shocker I know! We still need to sand and paint our baseboards in here but we are pretty much done with major repairs in our place.
Here is my Thanksgiving centerpiece. I am wanting a table runner and more pumpkins for this one.
I am crazy about the beach and shells! I love to make all kinds of things from shells and whatever else I come across on the beach.
Actually, I have a lot of interests including photography, cooking and decorating.
So this blog is a little bit of everything. But if you see anything you like, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will see what I can do for you. You can also visit my etsy store listed below and see what's going on there.
Thanks for stopping by!
