Something Different


While we were in Florida, I wanted to purchase a new summer wreath for our house. It was time for a change, and I looked in a few places for a wreath made with seashells. What I found were wreaths that were expensive and not too pretty. I kept looking, and when Kellie and Doug came down and we were shopping, Kellie mentioned that I could probably make a wreath myself with a plain grapevine wreath and some shells. With that suggestion in mind, I bought a big bag of various seashells and came home ready to create. I had to wait awhile to get to Hobby Lobby to get the wreath, but I finally made it, and here are the results. The big wreath I bought for less than $5, and the little one had been hanging around at Doug and Kellie's with nothing to do. So with $5 invested in wreaths and $10 invested in shells and a glue gun, I have creations that would have cost $15 and $30 apiece in Florida. Pretty good idea that Kellie had, wasn't it?
Life is good...

You did a great job on those Nancy!
They'll be a wonderful reminder of your time at the beach.
Plus, it's always nice to save a few $$$!

What a great idea and they are so pretty. I am not very crafty. I wish I was. Thanks for your kind words regarding my niece.
