The postman arrived :-)

A while ago I won some buttons on Sandra's blog the Cumberland Island Chick and this morning they arrived . We have had a lengthy mail strike which is still affecting our mail service even though they have gone back to work . I was so excited to win these buttons as I love buttons and couldn't wait to open the package to have a look , inside Sandra included some Earl Grey Tea as well as several charm squares , I mean how lucky am I ! Thanks so much Sandra , they are wonderful and I know I will enjoy using them on my projects. I just have to share one of the buttons , they are all great but this one is just gorgeous ,do you see that large heart shaped button in the front , pretty button don't you think .
As some of you know I have I have visitors right now , my DIL and our two oldest granddaugthers are here for a visit and yesterday we went to the beach so I thought I would share a couple of pictures with you . This beach is on Big Island a really beautiful beach that is the best kept secret around these parts and there were only four other people there .When we first arrived it was a bit breezy so a little nip in the air but once we walked around the other side of this large sand bar it was just beautiful and hot .


Here are my gorgeous granddaughters Alyssa and Caitlin brave enough to go in the water , they said it was warm but I wasn't about to test it .We had a wonderful afternoon and all that salt air sure made me tired but in a very good way . Thanks for stopping by I must get back to my visitors . Hugs Sheila
