Love The Little Piggy !

Tag Sale Find For My Fire Belly Frogs

I found this fish tank mermaid

for only $1.00.

It took all of 3 minutes

for my fire bellies started

to explore it and climb all over it.

It was very comical

to watch.

They ended up sitting on her head.
This morning when I checked in on
my froggies I found that one had spent
the night in the mermaid's cave.
He came peeking out when I started
to call him. Too cute....
for frogs anyway ! lol

A Sea Of Colorful Umbrellas !

I love these shots I took of all
the great colorful beach
umbrellas.
Ogunquit beach in Maine
only looks this crowded
when everyone squishes together
during high tide !
&
When the tide goes out
you have to walk a quarter
of a mile it seems before you
get to the ocean.

Some Goodies From My Beach Trip

I treated myself to some of

my favorite licorice from

the candy store in

Perkins Cove,

Ogunquit ,Maine.

I also bought myself the

awesome smelling beach

candle above from my favorite

store " Spoiled Rotten ".

The scent is a sensual mix

of lavender,eucalyptus,musk &

more.

I bought myself a couple of "Air Plants"

at Perkins Cove also. You just have to

dunk them in water a couple

of times a week and then they can

live in any kind of dish or glass

that you like with a little indirect

sun.

I found this sweet little bride salt

shaker at an outdoor fleamarket that

we stopped at.

Then I bought this huge bag of
vintage jewelry pieces ,
buttons & baubbles .
I love to create my ornate
trinket boxes with this.
( I found one special little flower
pendant in this pile that is
sterling silver with a pink
sapphire in it & also signed
on the back . This one I keep!)
I've sold one of my boxes in
my shop already.
More pictures of my beach trip
are on their way !
