Have you seen that Sanibel is featured in Coastal Living for their December 2013/January 2014 issue??? Did you notice those ALBINO shells in that orange bowl? Those are our shells on our front porch! Holy Cowrie! We made it into Coastal Living magazine! Coastal Living photographer David Hillegas came to our house to photograph our collection of local shells and my WORM SHELL mirror he heard about on the coconut shellegraph.
He ended up spending THREE hours photographing our house, shells and our “shellaboratory” so needless to say Super Sheller Clark and I had an amazing day hanging out with him and watching him work his magic. Thank you, David, for such a memorable day!
Honestly, I had heard about the article about Sanibel in the magazine but it came out when we were vacationing on Cat Island, Bahamas. When we returned it was Thanksgiving with amazing shell frenzy at Blind Pass Captiva, then I was focused on decorating for the Golf Cart Parade during the Captiva Holiday Village festivities. But low and behold, last night at the fantabulous Captiva Lighted Boat Parade, I met one of the judges for the parade…. Susan Sutton of Coastal Living.
Wow! So awesome to have Coastal Living involved in our boat parade judging on Captiva! She had a whole stack of Coastal Living magazines at the after party on Andy Rosse Lane so I flipped through it to see our shells made it into the issue AND saw this One Week Getaway to Captiva Island GIVEAWAY by Captiva Holiday Village. I’m so sorry I didn’t know about this sooner to tell you guys… but you have until the end of today December 15, 2013 to enter. Go to coastalliving.com/giveaway to enter today!
The Captiva Christmas Boat Parade was crazy fun with lots of boats lighting up the Roosevelt Channel so I didn’t want you to miss it either so we could shellebrate together. Here’s a quick vid of the awesome decorations on the Captiva Cruises‘ boat with Captiva Island Yacht Club and the Let It Snow boat. Woo Hoo!
With so much fun for the holidays, I put together my hand painted Holiday Shellection in my new Art Gallery… Check it out!
Oh but wait… remember…. don’t forget to watch Xtreme Xmas on the Travel Channel tonight at 7pm (12-15-13). Our whacky Captiva Golf Cart Parade is featured. Y’all need to be here next year to see all of this in person!
