Something New to Me

I was visiting my cousin and I commented on this shell display she had.  She told me to take it.  I protested.  I wasn't hinting for her to give me anything... I just liked it...  She insisted I take it...  My husband asked me where I thought I was going to hang it?  (He didn't want me to take it.)  She insisted.. I told my husband I'd put it in the laundry room.  He still frowned.  He said I could hang it outside the same as she had it, but he let me take it home.

There were a couple of starfish missing.  I made a special trip to Michaels to get some.  I glued some on and left it outside on a chair to dry.  The next day, the starfish were missing.  We can only guess that the dog ate them.  So back to Michaels to get more starfish.  I still need to clean up where the glue spread beyond the starfish on top and bleach a little more of the dark stains.  For now it is hanging in my laundry room. 

I will never again tell my cousin I like something in her house... no matter how much I love it...  I felt bad taking her beautiful shell display... but I sure do LOVE it...  Thanks Cousin!!

I wish I could get my kids to like about half the stuff in my house. They're too good it, they want new.

Your dog eats starfish? Wonder why? Do you think maybe it's like a dog biscuit, or a bone?

Meant, they're too good FOR it.
