sea washed treasures...

hello again dear hearts!
it has been awhile
but today,
i have sea washed treasures to share...
i have been infusing my home
 with a french nordic/elegant seaside style for awhile now
and i couldn't be happier
perhaps i could ~
if my cottage were actually BY the sea
but i will dwell in the possibilities:)
my dear friend Sofia, sent me a birthday package,
with nothing but treasures from the sea...
who knew a box of driftwood, shells and seaweed
could be so adored!
i ask, how you could not adore these
seashell lockets?!
they create such a romantic sea washed vignette
a lace sail driftwood boat floats atop white, sparkling sand...
in a giant shell!

they fit perfectly into my sea cottage setting...
a world of white washed loveliness,
with touches of silver, pearl and blue.
an oh-so-lovely sea stick bundle
 rests on a bit of vintage silver lace...

a pretty room by day ~
or by night,
when the twinkle lights come on
and cast a soft glow on the pearl kissed walls...
if you seek a few of these sea washed treasures of your own
i invite you to stop by Sofia's etsy shop
faux coral can be found on my fireplace mantle
for a little while longer...
blue sea crystals dangle from their branches
a bit of whimsy in the land of odds...
and you remember my driftwood ladder...
i enjoy creating lovely comfort in my home:)
a place where i can whisper my name
on the things i find
Be * YOU * tiful!

 next week,
i will be showing you my driftwood chandelier!!!
ahhhh yes,
greyed driftwood and lace
meets crystals and linen

  6. Well you know I love Seawashed since it is what I named my shop! And my Sea Cottage too that I have decorated in a Nordic coastal style inspired by JDL of course! I am currently painting some vintage furniture in a grey white weathered style that I will set my mary statue from San Juan Bautista mission on. There is a calm from the sea when we bring it into our homes isn't there? I am currently painting a Nordic coastal sea series...the grey sea. Come by and see. Oxox
