Oh. my. goodness. Karla! When I saw that sea fairy you assembled, I absolutely could not believe it! It is beautiful! Then when you said that you decided to leave it, hoping a little girl would excitedly find her, I thought that was so very unselfish.

I'm glad you were able to enjoy the trip, shortened though it was, and with a few oopsy and argh situations thrown in here and there. It's always so good to concentrate on the positive. We are all a lot happier that way, huh?

By the way, I love the detailed photos of the sand and dreamy photos of the ocean.

Maybe you should have gathered a bucket-full of those "witch's toenails" to bring home for your "Raven's Song" event in October. Methinks a creative project could have resulted . . . . Witch's toenails bracelets, anyone? ; )

Way too cool. You are so talented and even so nice to leave the fairy for someone else to find. I admire and love you very much! xoxo

Martha

How fun for the lucky person who came upon her! Just lovely! :)

Judy

So does he ever come to Pensacola area? Southwest will fly in here after Nov. Glad you enjoyed some time with your toes in the sand.

Laurie

I'm with you Karla -- just about anything is worth a few hours listening to the surf, and toes in the sand! I'm sorry your trip was a bummer. But I'm glad you were able to get some joy from it!

Linda

Beautiful post, Karla, and you are so right, beautiful things are often mixed in with the ugly things in our lives....we only need creative eyes to see them. Glad you were able to enjoy a few moments by the sea. Love the sea fairy and what a gift you left for someone else....just lovely! Blessings, Linda

Faylyne

Beautiful and whimsical sea fairy!!

Kathy

I think it was destiny that sent you there to find a sea fairy and pass it along to someone who needed one. I can imagine a dozen stories of who encountered it. Lovely post!

Cindy

Hi Karla, I love this post. Creating a fairy out of broken shells was amazing, and yes I did see a few small pieces of beach glass. Glass half full, love it!

Kate garfield

NiCE ! Very creative way of "making do", which mamma always said!

I often "make do" with many ephemera I use in my work. More often than not I am pleasantly surprised which you have once again, proved.

I love your shell Surprise...

A wonderful post!

bobbie

What a glorious fairy!!!

Charlotte

Karla, you are one in a million. Nobody could've tolerated my grousing had this been me. In fact, my husband would've probably quit his job rather than have to shorten the trip, just to shut me up. In predict something really surprising and wonderful is headed your way, 'cause you deserve it.

Carrie

Ohhh karla, you leaving that for someone to find just pulled at my heartstrings. what a lucky lucky person who happens upon that!!! your such a doll!!!

Judi Storm

Very cool

Derrith Scarbrough

What a delightful post about a series of unfortunate events! The fairie was a beautiful gift to the world and I wish I could see who happens on that happy surprise.

The shell fairy is precious...that WING is especially perfect! Love that you left it within a fairy ring. I do hope someone stumbled upon such a sweet surprise and that it made their day. It made mine, just seeing your photo!

And speaking of photos, man, your camera's macro lens sure captured every grain of sand beautifully....wow!

Still on the subject of photos, I just love the new-ish photo of you in your sidebar. If I remember correctly, that was taken when you were out shopping, right? What an amazing candid shot...so pretty!

Suzanne Duda

Oh, my friend, you are so talented! Only you could create something so magical! Xo suzanne

Carol

I am sorry for laughing as I read your post. It was just that it it just kept getting worse and worse. Sometimes life gives you lemons, but you obviously made lemonade (or margaritas) out of them. Love your angel.

Bella

Oh my. The Outer Banks is my stomping ground. Been going there almost every summer since childhood.

And that angel just made me smile.

Judy

What a great story...it was a blessing to me today. Thank you Karla for helping me to see that even when thiings don't turn out the way you planned, there is still oodles of good...and I love the OBX and seashells and fairies so you got me there. And you left her there...a good reminder that sometimes you need to let go and move on and let someone else enjoy. Bet you didn't know how profound your post was did you? LOL!

Hugs,
Judy

Thanks, Maggie. Yes, that was a picture taken of me in
CA at Bountiful. Great background!! She has a beautiful shop.


And, yes, I was happy to see how clear the photos of the
sand turned out. I really like my pocket camera, a Cannon S100.
