Sea shells

Hello dear readers,

You probably all know by now how much I love the sea and its treasures, sea shells of all sizes and
shapes.  Mostly I use the tiny shells to craft miniatures.  In order to get the very tiny ones I have to
dig out a large amount of shells.  The tiny ones are put aside and the ones I don't use I bring to the
elderly day center.  I'm going to teach them how to decorate larger size wooden boxes, same as my mini ones.

Once in a while a real treasure is found like this "dinosaur".  I am sure Baalatova will be delighted to have it.





Inside there was the dead animal which smelled like a fish market.  Never before have we found
a shell like this.  I'll have to ask what to do about the bad smell.





Except for sorting large amounts of seashells I haven't done any crafting.  My fingers are still
a bit sore although much better.  I have more time for visiting blogs and whenever possible
make comments.

A warm welcome to Katajamaki.  This blog, relatively new, is well worth visiting.  Much of
the indoor decoration is self crafted with photos to show how it's done. Thank you Katajamaki for following.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend with blessings.

Giveaway gifts from Hungary

Hello dear friends

First of all I want to thank you for your kind comments and well wishes.  Both my husband and
I are very grateful to you.  It got warmer these last two days and according to the weather forecast, it will get even warmer tomorrow.  Good for my fingers which are on the mend,

Fortune is treating me nicely these days. I won another giveaway from a lovely lady, Melli.
All the way from Hungary came the giveaway prize,  a beautiful shabby chic chair.  But that
was not all.  Melli, very generously, added some adorable extras.




Thank you dear Melli!

As you see, I already used the lovely chair in the photo, to wish you a Happy Valentine Day
(or Happy Family Day here in Israel!)



The two round cakes and wine bottle are gifts from Kikka,  Table, pitcher, flowers, heart-shaped
cake and ceramic plates are my work.

Blessings to you all!

Christine's giveaway

Hello dear readers,

Last week wasn't very easy.  My husband's operation was postponed at the very last minute.  Maybe
it's for the best.  Our hospitals are full to the brim with people with influenza. Not very
safe to be there these days.

I missed the meeting with the miniaturists, but very few attended.  Only three  completed the
trailers.  There will be another meeting where photos of all the trailers will be taken.

On the other hand, some happy news.  I was the very lucky winner of Christine's giveaway which
arrived a few days ago, a boost to my low spirits.

A beautiful felted painting, "UNDER THE OAK TREE". Christine is a master felting, sculpting and painting artist.  I recommend a visit to her blog to
see the wonderful pieces she creates.

(I'm not sure if you can note in this photo my swollen, blue, frost bitten fingers.  This happens to me, in spite of wearing gloves and keeping the house warm, when the days are extremely cold.)





A few posts ago, I showed you photos of another wonderful giveaway I won
from Susi.  I am very happy to share with you the good news.  Susi's Record Shop won FIRST PRIZE in a very distinguished contest.  You can see details in her blog.


A warm welcome to my new followers, Nina , Ayla and Helen.  Thank you for following.

I wish you all a lovely Sunday  and a wonderful creative week ahead. Blessings!
