Giant Clam Shell & Some News

Hi everyone!
I hope you are doing well.
I wanted to show you where I put the large clam shell my dad gave me when we
visited a couple of weeks ago.   This shell has been in his rock garden for over
thirty five years.  I love the shell and it is even more special because it came from
dad.  It will always have a special place in our home. 


I am headed to Florida for an extended time and my blog will be on  hold
until I return.  My Etsy shop will remain open and Steve will be handling
any purchases in my absence.

Thank you for understanding.  My time with dad is precious and he is my
priority now.

  9. Sherry, love your clam shell and the story behind it. I have had to take time off from my blog too in order to take care of my parents recently. "For everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven." Ecclesiastes

  10. Enjoy the time away with your Dad. Love the shell. My Grandfather gave me a conch shell a million years ago, it seems. I think of him always – not always easy to incorporate a giant pink shell in home decor if you dont live in FL, but for Poppy, I find a special place! Enjoy yours fully!!
