About a month ago when we went to Maine for the weekend, I picked up three shells from Ocean Park Beach.
When Kylie came to visit a couple weeks ago, she loved them and would pick them up, hold her hand up for silence, and try to hear the ocean.

After she left, I couldn't find the shells.  I figured she'd taken them with her which was fine.
Today I decided to clean the dining room.  As I was dusting the hutch,

I moved the old picture of my mom and dad

and found one of the shells!
Then I moved on to some knickknacks on the piano.  This teapot

didn't look very dirty and I almost didn't wash it but at the last minute figured I should since everything else was getting a bath.  When I took the cover off,

there was another shell!
That little stinker must have hidden them when I wasn't looking.
I haven't found the third one, yet, but I'm sure it's around here somewhere.

That is so adorable! I cannot wait to learn where she hid the third one! She must have been "keeping them safe" until her next visit.

Oh that's great! way to go Kylie! How cute. I showed and read this to her and she won't tell me where the third one is. I think she's keeping a secret. Love how you wrote this, Mom, you are so talented. Love you, Tuts

PS. Love the photos of your parents!!

I finally did a journal page
and posted it.

Been doing a lot of sewing so
don't always get to the journal.

God Bless You and Yours!!!

Thanks for stopping by to
take a look at the page.

The heart is turquiose with
pieces of a few other colors
with yellow behind it and
some of the water color over
it. The yellow is what showed
up more in the photo. In person
you see the turquoise.

God Bless You and Yours!!!
