Blarney and Winkles Saint Patrick's Day

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!  

Sally sent a package of winkles from her close by beach in Ireland.  She wrote a sweet note and enclosed it with the shells.  The largest of the winkles echoes the waves of the water in my ear.  There was a little bit of Irish sand in the shells and I collected it and put it back into the bag with the shells, I didn't want to lose any of it.   We may have not yet gone to the homeland of my husband's father, but we have a piece of its heart here in our hands with these shells.

Sally sells on Etsy as:   http://www.etsy.com/shop/BeforeImGone  Take a moment and read her Shop Announcement, it's very touching.  She's an 83 year old lady and her story is wonderful.

Winkles spread out on the beach calendar photo of Ireland with some of OH's books and Sally's note.
