Isn't this better than the mess I made before? We will just blame that ugly mess on the alcohol. Ok, Ok?
My dad died when he was near Gulf Shores, AL. We went to the beach(his fav one) and I found some shells and I took a little sand. I used that plus a fish bowl, some leftover filter sand from the pool and some garage sale candles and made this. No more monstrosity! I spent $.50 on the bowl and about $1 on the candles. Not too bad. It is a bit heavy with the sand. I may dig some sand out and put an empty pop bottle in there to lighten it up.
My dad would love the idea that he was with us at our parties. He loved to have a drink and sit around and laugh. Guess who I am like?
