..Sea Treasures.....

My mailman was leaving just as I rounded the corner from my speed walking.... he shouted that I had a parcel..... ooooohh !! ..... ....I picked up the pace even if my little legs were already going about as fast a trotting Corgi....

Recognized the address right away..... my long time blog buddy Darly.... whose parcel I have been anticipating for ... well, let's just say I've been on high alert for a while now...hahha... it has become a private joke. Sorry Darly, had to get it in somewhere, didn't I? but, now.... ....












... the highly anticipated surprise .... my little mermaid spied that shell etui right away.











...she was trying to lay claim to it before I even got to look inside.











Then, she managed to open it.... aahhhhhh ..... the colours! and there inside...another tiny mermaid in her beautiful world of aquas and greens...seaweed and shells and pearls... pearls?














Hey! I got a pearl!











there's a real pearl in there!

.... another mermaid... swimming with fish and a friendly octopus....










and...... a beautiful earring set. Sea Glass! Sometimes called Mermaid's Tears ... somebody remembered my fascination with sea treasures.....











I'm a very lucky girl..... thank you so much Darly.... you are a pearl too.....

they are beautiful, when ever I see earings like that it tempts me to get my other ear pierced so I can wear a pair :-) been back a week from our travels and hubby along with Biker ted have already left me and gone to Scotland for a bike rally- methinks time to get the paints and fabrics out...yeah

Sea glass earrings! Sooooo pretty!! I like collecting sea glass, too, and have a jar of it around here somewhere. That's a very pretty shade of green, too. I bet you look great wearing those.

You gals are so creative and talented. Very nice treasures.
