Friday - Hilton Head Island

I had the sweetest surprise this morning. My friend, Sarah, sent me this beautiful bouquet of flowers for my birthday. My birthday is Sunday. Aren't they just lovely? 

I finished my bird embroidery. I used colors that are in my new quilt for our bedroom. I am going to make this in to a throw pillow. 

I looked at this pitiful chipping nail polish on my toes and decided attention was in order.

I gathered my supplies and my new nail polish. Have you tried the new Salon polish by Sally Hanson? I have several colors. It has the base, top coat and polish all in one. Just two coats and you are good to go. I love it.

Now, aren't these better?

It was rainy today. We stayed in and did some reading, worked on my embroidery, watched some of the first season of Justified, and then went to dinner. We ate at Old Oyster Factory. It was so delicious.

We started with a Crab Corn Chowder.

Stan had a shrimp and scallops pasta dish.

I ordered broiled talapia with shrimp, scallops, mushrooms and tomatoes with a side of rice and steamed veggies. I think I ordered the same thing last year. 

Today it is much cooler and a bit breezy. We are hoping the winds die down. We would like a last day walk on the beach.


  1. Love your bird well as your St. Patrick's Day one. Embroidery is on my list of things to learn! It's just too pretty!

    1. Thanks so much! I love to embroider but have not done much over the last few years. It is so relaxing and I can do it while watching TV with hubby! has the most comprehensive stitch guide that I have ever found and is so easy to follow. :)


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment! I read each & every one.
