While out and about this weekend, I found what I think were appropriate subjects for Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week. Though not much of a traveler, I did accumulate three different takes on the subject. Tell me what you think. Delicate? or Not so much. And then travel over to Ailsa’s blog and see more delicate subjects from some seasoned travelers. 😉
A Christmas tree made of shells. So delicate that I couldn’t buy it. It was broken!
Whenever I’m in need of a pick-me-up, flowers always seem to do the trick. Trader Joe’s never let’s me down.
Yesterday, I spotted these ‘sailors’ . This would not be my favorite mode of transportation, mainly because I am not a swimmer and I think it takes a delicate balance to keep you and your vehicle upright. I did see a few of these sailboats tip precariously and that only reinforced my fears on the subject of sailing. I also fell into a hole in the ground while making my way to the water’s edge. Clearly not my cup of tea, this delicate business of boating. But fun to watch. Even if from a gopher hole!

I love the abalone shell christmas tree.
Thanks, Cee. I liked it a lot but the back was broken beyond repair. Delicate! 😀
The Christmas tree looks a little like it’s made of Crocs (the shoes), which would make it more clunky than delicate. Shells are delicate. It’s really cute and beachy. Sailboats scare me, even though I can swim. Swimming doesnt help if you fall into a hole on the way there, though. Smooth move… Love the new After picture! It’s kind of biker-babe, meets the bug. 🙂
You noticed right off this time. Cool! Thanks.
Yes, that’s me. Smooooooth. Ha!
I don’t think that shell tree is such a great idea at all. I’m not surprised it was broken. I keep seeing reference to Trade Joe’s on people’s blogs. I wish we had one here in West Palm. The flowers look lovely. I’m also not a swimmer, and was once in a Hobie Cat that tipped over. Never again! 🙂
Yikes! If I even went on that Hobie it would have been the last time for me too! Phew!
Trader’s has some very cool and different stuff. My favorite: peppermint green tea and edamame chips. Love them. 😉
Actually the lifeguard was a real hunk, and I got to ride back to shore with him, leaving hubby to set the hobie to rights and struggle back on his own. 🙂
Atta girl!!! You go!
That shall tree is a cool idea, but breakable… Trade Joe’s flowers are hard to resist. I’m not a swimmer either.
I don’t even know how that whole swimming thing happened. My sister is a great swimmer. I think mommy liked her best. LOL 😉
Thanks, for the visits, Amy.
The Christmas tree looks beautiful.
I wish it wasn’t broken.
I would have been disappointed to see that as well.
You did great for the subject of delicate. I do best at putting my feet in a shallow body of water like a puddle..just kidding. I am not a swimmer either..
Thank you, Roberta. 🙂
You nailed it; delicately, of course.
Shell tree looks beautiful !!!Beautiful entry.
Thank you, Pravina. I’m sorry there wasn’t another. 😦
Delicate and beautiful. The Christmas tree shells reminded me why Christmas is my favorite holiday. Magical and amazing!
Isn’t it though. It’s the most wonderful time of the year – I feel a song coming on… 😉
That tree is truly amazing. How in the world did they make it without breaking it? Well…maybe they didn’t. LOL. I’m with you on sailing. I love to watch, but my boat would be sunk as my balance is precarious on land. On sea? Forget about it! HA.
Haha! Aren’t we the adventurous souls? 😉
Yep! Every step we take. LOL!
You mean like today, when I smashed my head in the doorway at the Discovery Museum, and then crashed both my knees into the slide at the McDonald’s play place? Every step…UGH! 😀
I’ve never seen a tree made from shells before – I should imagine the colours were amazing 🙂
Iridescent. Very pretty.
Good ‘seeing’ you, Marianne. 😉
Loved that tree !!! Much eating was done to accomplish such a wonder!
BTW, I am really not co-ordinated either and have three bruises done in the past week : )
What’s the deal with the bruising? I feel like a klutz. And I have a huge headache.
Be careful. Be well. 😉
You toooooooooo Gemma!
When I first saw the tree, I thought it was made of shoes/boots! 🙂 Silly me.
What a lovely tree! I want to stroke it 🙂
Flowers always cheer me up too. I came home to a beautiful bouquet from “the girls” in celebration of the birthday. Forgot to take a photo before I split it up into vases! Caramba 🙂
Sometimes the photo moment gets lost but the memory is there. Sweet. 🙂
I like the shell tree – and the centre one of the flower photos. Hope you’re good, Gem! A 🙂
Thanks, Adrian. Good, as always, but with a slight head cold. Blah!
