A Belated Merry "FITS"

Keep your Christmas-heart open all the year round.  ~Jessica Archmint

I just realized that I had not posted a Merry Christmas to all of my blogger buddies and I am ashamed!! The last few Christmases in our family have changed dramatically and with those changes come adjustments and lately they have used most of my time!! I do apologize!! Let me wish you a Happy New Year early and please know that I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and that 2014 will find you and your families well and happy!!

As I mentioned earlier, our Christmases lately are different, very little family traditions are the same and we are constantly scurrying around trying to adjust and possibly begin new traditions.  Our families gave us wonderful gifts for our new place in Florida, so we decided to take them down and see if they "fit" at our new house!! :)

These are our Grandbabies in New York City, and they sent this BEAUTIFUL picture framed in Abalone Shells that 'fits 'perfectly on our new shell table!!
A Closer view of Hailey, Chloe, Ava and Dylan!!
They also sent us this Beautiful candle that matches the color perfectly, and it "Fits" on the other matching table!
...and these AWESOME teal cracked glass wine glasses that "Fit" nicely in our glass front/back cabinets and continue the perfect color scheme!

Our Sister in law, Maxine gave us this Awesome candle with Seahorses and Shells "Fits" very nicely on our table next to our picture windows.
My Mom gave us this shell picture that "Fits" very nicely in our upstairs bathroom!
Brad and Jess gave us this AWESOME laser carved wood relief map of Sanibel that "Fits" perfectly on our wall at the first landing of the stairs!
Here is a better picture of it from the web, it doesn't photograph very well because of the flash!

I hope all of your Christmas gifts "fit" as well as ours did!! :)  While we were down here we decided to see how the shelling was this time of year!! There are super low tides, but they are about 4:30 am so we got our there just before dawn at about 6:30. The shelling wasn't GREAT but it was very pleasant temperature wise, a little cloudy and we got a few special finds!!

Hopefully we will have more luck tomorrow morning!! Stay tuned!!
