the earrings were good prices, some 50 cents and a couple of them were 2.00 pr....I am going to used them on some of my birdhouses......maybe.....hmmmmm

Surprise for my Daughter

My youngest daughter had gall bladder surgery today, she is only 31....I made her a surprise and mailing it out today along with some goodies I picked up at Cracker Barrell for her 2 boys and hubby....She is home and doing well...Technogoly sure has come a long way, so many things are out patient these days that you used to have to spend several days in the hospital....

She lives in WIlmington, NC close to the beach, so I thought I would do something beachy...I used "Wallies" seashells......I hope she likes it....
