Several years ago, one of my daughters gave me a particularly welcome birthday gift. Unlike most summers, we had not been able to take a family vacation to the beach and I was feeling a tad blue about that while sweating out the Arizona heat.
One day there was a knock on the door and the sweet UPS man handed me a rather large box from Crate & Barrel. I love Crate & Barrel!
Inside were these scrumptious beachy beauties and a note from my daughter indicating that she hoped it would bring some beach into my life, even if I couldn't be there in person to enjoy it.
I am pretty certain I could smell the ocean air as I removed the bubble wrap.
Now these lovely urchins sit on my coffee table in my home ... just miles from the beach.
