Sea shells and Gumballs...

 I was given a basket full of sea shells, they belonged to a dear lady named Erma. Erma passed away last month and her sea shells is all I have from her...to remember the laughter we shared I created this shell mirror without even checking to see if I had enough sea shells...hahaha. Luckily my dear friend Amy had given me a jar full of Sanibel Island shells and I was able to incorporate them in the mirror. Erma was a funny lady...always made you laugh with her quircky comments. I do miss her.



This was today's find at Goodwill for only $5.00...love, love, love it!!
I am hooking up to Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays with Linda at Coastal Charm...check out her blog...its full of eye candy!!!
Hugs...Sylvia

Sylvia amor, what a beautiful mirror you made with your gift from your lovely friend...everytime you look at it, you will SMILE :) I love your gumball machine, I mean to paint one of my cream and antique it and the other one really pale pink...thinking of filling them both with Strawbursts tropical flavor jellybeans...cause a girl can never have too many of those or tootsie rolls :) Besos, Rose
