I'm back (but you knew that since I'm here, huh? ). I think this was my very favorite family vacation ever. Perfect in a million ways.... I just downloaded all the photos and got a little "homesick" for N. Carolina and Nags Head.
But anyway, I am late getting back here to announce the latest "Fair Trade Friday giveaway" winner. And since I'm late getting back to the blog world, I thought I'd apologize with an extra gift.
This is one of my all time favorite books, my copy of Gifts from the Sea, by Anne Morrow Lindbergh. It's her story of her love affair with the sea and the beach, she compares her stages of life as an American wife and mother with the shells she has combed from the beach. It's a wonderful book, and just as timely for today as it was when it was written in 1955.
I dressed it up with a sea colored ribbon, a shell I found at Nags Head beach, an old vintage pearl earring, and a few filmy flowers-- they remind me of the jellyfish we were all so fascinated by on this trip.
Lisa @ the bunnylog blog is the winner for this month. Lisa, I'll get your earrings ordered and I'll slip my book in the mail for you!
I'm still getting my land legs back here, you know how it is when you get home from a vacation... Frankly, I would trade my land legs for a mermaid's tail for another week at the beach, but no such luck ;)
I'll post again soon this time-- I've missed you guys! xoKelly
