Lily Anni's Sand Castle

I love my early Sunday morning beach walks.  I find something wonderful each week.  You sleepy heads are missing out!

A different Topaz filter was used on each photo.

This Old House...

I found this old house while walking through the historic district of Fernandina Beach,  FL.

The "drawing" was created using Photoshop Elements filters.  It was fun to do and relatively easy.

Her name is Laura...

Someone built this fantastic mermaid and left it for me to find on my Sunday morning beach walk.  What a delightful surprise!

The Last Hurrah...

Quite by chance I espied the last amaryllis bloom in my garden.  Surprisingly, there was virtually no stalk supporting this flower.  The blossom was tucked away towards the bottom of the plant.

All Good Things...

All good things must come to an end...I'm not sure why, but they do.

I love my shoe tree - but with our upcoming move, it was time to dismantle it.  We've had plenty of rain and while the shoes look good from a distance, close up one can see the weather has taken it's toll - colors faded and shoes quite dirty.  The tree created quite a buzz - lots of people wanted to know the back story.  Often I would look out the window and see people staring at it, scratching their heads while others took photos.  I'll miss that shoe tree of mine.

I doubt that I can decorate another tree in this fashion when we move - too many rules and regs in the new neighborhood.  I'll think of something...
