Beach Presents

Everyone loves presents, right? And I especially love little hostess gifts from friends who come to the beach. I makes me feel---special? appreciated? And like I am six years old, LOL!

These are from a recent visitor, someone who often arrives with "a little something". I thought this bag of prezzies was exceptionally thoughtful and fun.

GREAT Crocs in perfect popsicle colors...my beloved last year's ones are starting to, um, show their age.

And a wonderfully ocean-toned handblown fishy for my glass fishy menagerie. He is just soooo beautiful.

In the ocean he'd be perfeclty camouflaged, wouldn't he?

Soooooo...when you guys arrive at the beach---pails, sandshovels and sunscreen in hand, maybe think of the friend who is opening her door and saying Hi! with a big welcoming smile. Even a bunch of supermarket daisies or a six pack of Coke can make me smile!

What makes you smile?

(My lavender hearts---still to come--- make a great hostess gift, by the way! They'll appear on esty and eBay real soon, I promise.)
