Under the Sea Challenge--Dezinaworld

My friend June at Dezinaworld is having an awesome challenge called "Under the Sea." Well, that's the theme and I wanted to submit this entry--it is a cigar box (you know how I love to make those!)

Okay, so I know that this isn't "under the sea," but it's "on the beach," so I figure it's close enough! lol I'm using "artistic license" and hoping my entry will make people smile...I forgot to tell you--I love the beach--I hope you do too!

Being a little bit country and a little bit sea shore I really love this box.

Your talents amaze me. Just to have a little tiny bit of your talent would thrill me.

Under the boardwalk down by the sea...I like it. It was found in a sunken treasure chest under the sea. I think I like beachy things so much because I love the beach but seldom get to one. Hugs, Linda

Much nicer use for a cigar box than just to keep cigars in!!
I love the sea too, but we live 2 hours away now; we are slap, bang in the middle of England.

Gorgeous work Cindy. And, your magazine is taking off really well. Congratulations...

Chris said...

Great artwork Cindy! Are you going to make a purse with it???
Hugs, Chris
P.S. Cigar box purses were very popular last year. Probably still. I was shocked to see the prices of some of them in the high end stores. When you have talent like them, make your own.

Hi there Cindy, your "Sea Cgar" box is fun. And I LOVVVE my dreamboat, Jimmy Boy. We're from the same era. Your blogspot is charming. I'm hopeful to set mine up soon. I'm from LA also, lived and had funtimes in NOLA many years. My 2 Boys-Jesuit; My 2 Girls-Dominican. If you happen to go to the beach in FL - Watercolor & Seaside area - my daughter, Ginger, recently moved there with her husband and 2 little girls. Check out her shop/workshop at Grayton Beach shopping center. You can see some of her work at gingerleighdesigns on facebook. And do visit her shop in FL; she too loves vintage, nature, & all natural fabrics.
