I truly just want to take a nap or something!
I did some running around yesterday and it took every bit of control not to stop in to the SPCA Thrift Store! But I stopped at ACE Hardware in Titusville and purchased more shells (6 bags) to finish the front area. I picked some other things that I will show you later. I went to the Dollar Tree and got a pail and shovel and sandcastle molds too to add to the front.
This morning my dog knocked the chair into the table outside and my heron fell into pieces! I was a calm unhappy person. I'm going to try to E-6000 glue it back together! My pelican's beak is being glued with E-6000 now; I hope it holds.
But it is so darn HOT and STILL! So once again I was staring at the picture outside and deciding what I want to do. After this post, I'll go in and out and try to do a little at a time. But what I know I want to do is in this picture:
I have to add more plastic to the right and I think the right side needs more shells than the left too. I'm thinking a message in the bottle but want to add things slowly, not to over crowd it.
Little by little, it will get done!
The shells are down! I put more plastic down where it was needed and around the the snake plant. I put all 6 bags down and I am in love with it. I still have 1 bag of shells that I might use as a filler... we'll see how it goes. This is what it looks like now, while we are having a serious thunder storm.
Nothing like living in Florida and having the shells to prove it, too!
I think it makes such a difference!
I stopped here because of a thunder storm. I want to re-paint the chair, hit the sand castle with my sand spray paint, and I have a pail and shovel to add shells to. And there's some clean up needed around the blocks...and weed killer needed.
Well, that's my journey to my beach front. I hope you like it too.
