5.  Metamorphosis Monday

Before I show my copied craft, I want to give an update on Miss Pearl…….some of you may recall I was worried that she had broken her leg.  She has been laying under the Wisteria bush for about 4 days and I have been taking her food and water.  Today in all the rain, I saw her walking around with Mr.Tom and the other hens……she has a slight limp.  I am so happy, she is my favorite.

I am always looking for ideas for the lake house and I saw some napkin rings with shells made by Beth and I made some of my own.

Please visit the above blogs and see tons of creative projects.

Happy Monday!

Shells are such a great material to work with and I love how no two are exactly like alike! They go well with so many fabrics - your choice of burlap is a great one!

So glad to hear that Miss Pearl is on the road to recovery. It's so hard to watch wounded animals and be unable to help.

Hi Barbara, I am happy that Miss Pearl is up and about. She will be fine I hope. What a relief.

The napkin rings are very pretty. They will be very nice in the wonderful tablescapes you put together.

I have had a full day. we are celebrating our 47th wedding anniversary. Boy those years flew by. Smile.

Have a happy day with Miss Pearl's recovery.
Hugs, jeanne

Glad to hear that Pearl is on the Highway of Recovery! Yea!

Love your napkin rings, Barbara. Those are so cute.

I'm glad to have a chance to catch up with you. I've been computerless with the workmen. No access in St. Aug. So I came home and am playing hookey. I hope to be blogging again soon. Missed you!

Love to you, sweet lady...
