the salty sea
and all that she offers,
may call to you ~
with all her might
to come sit at her ruffly hem's edge
and just be...
she has cast her spell on me
and this week i found myself creating pretties
inspired by her intoxicating allure...
i very often find that i create ensembles
a crochet thrift store find,
can become an elegant beach dress in less than an afternoon
with a few snips there and a tuck here
and let's add some tie straps and a high lo hem there
a sea side dress
just perfect for walking on the shore, no?!!
(i bet you'll never pass up a cotton tablecloth again ~ will you?!?)
and i don't know about you,
but my curly locks always end up looking
w-a-y past windswept on the beach!
so to tame my locks and still feel pretty ~
i created these simple little bobbies
with nothing more
than a handful of freshwater pearls
and some sterling silver wire
something "washed over" me
when i was designing this tiny, wire wrapped shell rosary
it took me two strait days to wire wrap all those shells
but i simply ADORE how it turned out!!
and least we not forget the lobes...
...as in ear lobe adornments
freshwater pearls in two different shapes,
can become most lovely paired together
and will dangle beautifully
silver, pearls, lace and shells just seem so natural for the sea...
i can't wait to hit the beach in my new beach ensemble:)
if i only knew when...
not to worry
i will simply leave it on my mannequin until the day i return
to the sea,
the beautiful sea...
