..............and bought another one...tehee....balance problem SOLVED!!!! There were a couple of other items that I would really like to have purchased, but I really needed the second seahorse for the mantle.
Sorry these pictures aren't the best - lighting - I hate taking pictures indoors!
I did, if you remember, mention that I had had purchased another beachy item when I made the initial purchase of the first seahorse. I love it as well. Love it, love it, no really, I love it..hahaha.
Can you believe that I am finding these wonderfully beachy items at Crackle Barrell? I mean, I made the purchases and I still can't get over it. Crackle Barrell!!!! And it was very reasonable. It was only $20. It is the prefect size too. Not too big and not too small. It's about 14 inches wide and about 6 inches tall.
I have seen these on the beachy blogs that I love to follow. Many of you already had something like this that you were utilizing in your beach displays. Some of may even have the real thing. But from the first time that I laid eyes on your photos I have wanted one...really badly. That is why it is so surprising that I didn't even notice this until after we had eaten and I went back to take my seahorse home with me. That's how much in love with the horsey I was. I have priced these shells on websites and they were running in the neighborhood of $80...yikes...for a small one!! Let me say this again - CRACKER BARRELL and $20, yes $20!!
Don't you just love it - and the coral base...sweeeet!!!! What to put it in you ask? Well, after several Sanibel vacations I have no shortage of lovely shells to place in there. I bought this on a Friday and that evening I got really sick. It was my Saturday to work ( I work every other Sat from 8:00 -12:00 ). Needless to say I really didn't want to go in- but it's not fair to call someone out of the blue early on a Sat morning and ask them to work for you. Just couldn't do it, so I trudged on into the office. When I made it home my boyfriend had been hitting the neighborhood yard sales and had picked up a teeny something for me. What, you ask? Well, let me just show you..............
I normally would not buy shells because I love to collect my own right off the beach but I love them if someone else buys them for me. And these are perfect to go inside my treasure from Cracker Barrell!
Love the colors of these shells inside the white clam shell.
So very pretty and we all know "pretty" makes me happy". LOL
Yep, I am one happy woman!!
Another thing that makes me happy is visitors and comments. I will always respond to your comments here and will also make every effort to visit you blog as well. THANK YOU for stopping by!!
