Show and Tell Friday..........

Well, it's time for Kelli's Show and Tell.......This is one of my favorite belongings. It was made by a dear friend of ours who lives in a town where we lived once. He is a Christian physician, named Ben, who grows the most beautiful flowers. He and his sweet wife, Faye, entertain us royally in their home when we are in their area. He does beautiful shell work including mirror frames and all sorts of accessories.

The shell church lives on our sun porch year round and makes me smile each time I look at it...

The picture doesn't do it justice and the pitcher and bowl do not stay on the table with it.....

Neat! I've never seen anything like this before. I think handmade gifts are so special as you can remember the giver each time you look at the gift! It doubles the pleasure! Thanks for sharing!

Good Morning Betty...
How lovely! A pretty little church made of shells. This is giving me ideas, for we have shells aplenty on the beach, I must show it to John.
