From two different angles at 6:00PM & 7:00PM a corner in Tarpon Spring
Shoppes (Greek Town).  You can find all kind of super mega interesting stuff in this town at affordable prices.  Bags, dresses, lotions, jewelry, shoes, food, and people who love to smile.

Seashells for my Christmas decorations!!

I've been thinking what can I can I decorate my bathroom for the season, without loosing the Floridian, beachee style I love so much and that also is the accent of my apartment.  Well I came with this idea.  I painted this seashells using craft paint and glitter glue.  I can now fill my mini baskets with the painted shells in the season colors and still keep the tropical ambiance.

After I clean them I add a coat of clear glue and let it dry, to prepare the surface for color.  Then I applied these colors and others I don't show here.

I applied two different techniques here for two different finished.  With the paint still fresh on the shell, I applied the glitter glue for a more creamy finished.  For the other one I waited until It dried and then applied the glimmer mist for a more "sparkling" effect.   
And this is what I got . In the second image the creamiest ones are in the left low corner.  Do you see the difference?

I spent the final hours of this beautiful sunny afternoon watching State fair (1945) and making this flowers that I learn to make from a Youtube tutorial @"annettelabedski".  She is very clever and I love her tutorials because they are so simple and she is a good teacher.  It's easy to follow her.  All of her creations turn out to be pretty things that I can always include in my pages and books.  Thanks Mrs. Annette.  Please visit her channel.
