The Shell Game

Husband went yard saling and found this crusty old iron shell.

I put some of my mother's beach glass and stones in it with a candle I just love it..

 I when to a church sale with miss baby and daughter and got this.
Daughter paid 20.00 for this at pampered chef I paid 1.00

It works great. I grilled the big chunks and they were so yummy,

I have decided to make bread wish me luck.
My niece is doing well thank you for your prayers. They always work.
So I am asking for prayers again please pray for a young man in his early
40's who is having a major health issue but the Dr can't seem to find what is causing it.
He is becoming very frustrated and could use all the prayers he can get.
We are expecting warm muggy weather most of the week boo I like warm but not the muggies.
Put all your eggs in one basket and-WATCH THAT BASKET!

What a clever idea to put a tea light in with the beach glass.
I LOVE fresh grilled pineapple!!!
Good luck with your bread. Warm from the oven with butter. Oh, I think I'm drooling!
Pug hugs :)

Good find! I love pampered chef but not their prices...and that grilled pineapple sounds so good..I've never done that but will have to try it. Good luck with bread making. It's not my best thing to make but I let my last batch rise outside on a hot day and I had the best success with it. Hmmm...who knew?

I haven't baked bread in such a long time. I hope you take a pic of the finished loaf. I love that candle. I appreciate any help with that frame! Love the candle holder...very pretty.

That is a great way to handle a pineapple.
I hope your bread turned out great !!

I LOVE that shell!!! So many prayer concerns right now it seems--my list grows daily. Putting bread outside on a hot muggy day works very well--it loves all that humidity!

Isn't it miserable out. Its almost too hot to even grill. The shell is another great find. It must run in the family. I will be going up next week(fingers cross)to see my daughter. I hope I have time, I would love to stop in the store and say hi!

Liz said...

Have a lovely week!

Just trying to catch up -
I love the shell too :o)
Hope the bread turned out well - I'm a whizz with a bread machine, but not too good with 'hand made'.
So pleased your neice is doing well, hope your friend is sorted out soon.

I know it's wrong, but I'm jealous of that shell! lol I like nautical things!
Isn't pineapple so great this time of year? I had a big bowl for breakfast. Would have been nice to have a slicer like that though!
Will keep your friend in my prayers.That must be very scary for him.
