"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather is one of those things that give value to survival." - C. S. Lewis

One of the side benefits of blogging are the actual bloggers themselves.  The Blogsphere is a huge global cyber-community.  Due to the content one's blog you tend to draw & be drawn to others with similar interests and ideas.  Nothing wrong with that.  Over time,  after exchanging comments & emails a personality & heart starts to emerge from the online nom de plume.


  You meet the DH & find all about the DD/DS.  We brag about  grand kids and post about birthdays, weddings, and anniversaries.  We watch each others creative juices flow (or not) as we post our hand-made creations and various art. We take each other on our vacations and other wanderings. Every so often we actually get to meet face-to-face. I've never met a blogger I didn't like & I've met a bunch.      
                      
                                                          
I got this pretty package in the mail last week.







Inside was a beautiful pendant made by Della of Del's Shells.  I had sent her a care package of fossils & drift shells from Manasota Key to play around with.  She sent back a lovely Atlantic sand dollar & a much improved drift shell with 2 little gems that are mine & the hubb's birthstones.  There is also a cute silver shell charm to finish it off.












I love love handmade jewelry. This one will be an extra special keepsake.










Della from Del's Shells recently had a meet up with blogger buddy Diane from Diane from Lavender Dreams
