This is a photo I took about two nights ago.

These shells came from my niece who spent a whole day diving to the bottom of the lake getting them for me. I have a jar full..They are special to me.

The buttons came from my Mom who gave them to me in a white box. The pearl buttons sitting on faded cotton like a glorious offering..

Another beautiful photo. I swear you have the best camera! Great !

Thanks for stopping by my blog today Nita. It was so nice to hear your kind words.

The past few weeks have not been very good ones for me. I probably need to talk to you about a personal problem you have been through. We discussed this awhile back. It flares up like a pimple and explodes and then all is well for another few months.

Anyway, thanks for thinking of me my dear friend.
God Bless You

what a great combo. I love the shades of ivory and whites. The texture of the buttons on pearls is very soothing to the eye.

This is a lovely photo, Nita. Thank you for commenting on our blog. I spent quite a bit of time reading your blog this morning and I wanted to express my sympathies to you for the loss of your husband John. I can't imagine how hard that must be. My thoughts are with you.
