Blue Monday- Sea Glass

We recently went back to Glass Beach where I found quite a few of the blue sea glass you see here. The color is so vibrant and so deep I just wish I had a jar full of just that color. We had a great time playing in the water and searching for the most wanted colors, blue, red, purple, and black.

Now I need some ideas for all my sea glass. Any crafty people out there? I stay away from jewelry because I wont wear it and my friend already does that. I would rather make something that I can display in my house so I take any ideas you may have. Oh and I have the display in a jar and a bowl down as the #1 way to show off sea glass and add color to the "all too white" rooms in military housing.

Anything else?

Self Portrait "Pouting Emilie"

Every time I see this self portrait of our daughter I feel a sense of pride. Where she get this talent I just don't know. Maybe I have it and it was just never developed... hmmm!

This is our Emilie. She drew this with an artist pencil in art class in a very short period of time. She often questions her talent. As a typical teen, she really didn't accept her artistic talent until this last "master piece!"

Such a beautiful person, a beautiful, funny girl. We are so proud!!

Outdoor Wednesday- Honey our new Lab

I'm excited to show off our new 3 year old Yellow Lab "Honey."
She is a great dog, obedient, playfull and loves to run and get wet!
We're excited to have her.

Hopefully soon I'll start gardening and will be able to show off all the pretty things I hope to grow here in Guantanamo. I will have to develop a really green thumb somehow but I need to see more green and more colors in my yard soon :-)

Enjoy your day everyone!

Please visit Susan at A Southernday Dreamer where I'm sure you'll find some really great outdoor photos.

Blue Monday - Blue Beach

Care to guess why this is called Blue Beach?
The waves were wild and everyone had a great time riding them all the way to the shore!
