Brittany & Travis

I just had to share my little sister's amazing engagement photos with you all!
Last weekend she and Travis had their professional engagement photo shoot with their awesome photographers at Acromatico.

I was fortunate enough to be there for all the fun! Their shoot was at their high school (and mine;) where they met 8 years ago...on the baseball field.
Brittany was manager of the team, Travis played ball. I love them both and I can't wait for their wedding!

Thanks for taking gorgeous pictures Acromatico!

Fun with Shells

For some reason, spring brings in the shell orders. I guess we get a touch of warm weather throughout the country and people get inspired for a change. I know I do!
I have been shell crafting away lately...

I made this 8x10 frame with shells I found at Lighthouse Point in Fort Lauderdale.

Limpet hair clips are so pretty for summertime.

Who doesn't need a shell fan pull?!

And nightlights. So pretty. This one is made with a mushroom coral.

This is a cockel shell from Sanibel Island, FL. I may need to add a little white starfish to this one ;)

I have 3 Wine stoppers. The one on the left is a cowrie shell. The other 2 I have are fighting conchs that I found on various Florida beaches.

More to come soon! Visit my etsy shop if you are interested in purchasing any of these super shell items.

Stuff We've Been Up To

It's been a bit crazy for us lately. Our apartment is being tented for termites. We are living in a corporate apartment across town in the meantime and while it has been kinda fun to be somewhere new for a few days, I am ready to go back.
We had to bring food, work and pets with us while the tenting takes place. It's so strange...I feel like we are living in two places.

Outside of our temporary home, there is a little dove guarding her nest. This is torturing the cats and thus torturing the dove in return. But I have enjoyed her company.

So tonight we head back to our critter-free home, start the cleaning process and pack up again to head to Fort Lauderdale for Easter with the family.

On another note...last weekend we went to the Grand Prix in St. Pete.

We saw lots of cars go fast!

We watched the winners celebrate with champagne.

We watched the Indy cars race.

And we were able to view the cars up close.

The Budweiser Clydesdale horses were there.

And they brought us free beer!

We didn't go on this Ferris Wheel, I just like pictures of Ferris Wheels.

Husband was in his element.

That's it for us. More adventures next week.
Happy Easter to you all!!
