Island Fever!

Hi Everyone~

Yes, it's that time of year again--a time when many of us want to get to the beach and put our toes in the sand!


I wanted to show you some of my new beach-themed Etsy items...


I got the idea to sell various pieces that could be used to display shells or any other collection...


Shelves are always fun...especially in a special nook or cranny of the house where you want some added pizzazz...


I couldn't wait to get my hands on this set of shelves to repurpose them!


And, of course, sconces with a fleurish design fit so perfectly with any Beach Cottage decor...



Dreamy...Just like a day at the beach!

Linking this to Alphabet Thursday with Jenny!!


Oh, and one more thing...If you love French Farmhouse decor, please scroll down to see what I have in store...

I have been having trouble posting to many blogs, so if you don't hear from me, you'll know why!!

Love & hugs,
Cindy

Hi Cindy, I am also still having problems with blogger leaving messages. I wonder if they are working on it;) Love all of your Summer etsy pictures. I hope your etsy is going well for you. I couldn't post for Bloggers' Bodega yesterday because I was a little occupied;) See my blog!!!!!!!

love these! I recently soldered on some shells that I picked up from the beach when my sisters took me up north for my birthday. I am adding jumprings and giving them to my SIL's parents for letting us stay at their cabin. I just love summer, don't you?

Cindy, I just bought one of those Cheese savers at an estate sale for a dollar. I am going to paint mine and now guess what???? Add shells too...I have several "beachy" items in my booth and this will be a great addition. I love grouping similar items for "eye catching impact". Thanx for sharing!

I think I could actually LIVE on the beach, in one of those fab wooden little houses with a nice veranda, waking up every morning to the sound of rolling waves {sigh}. Thank goodness we can still have our dreams!! Hugs, Ira

Esther Joy said...

I'm still a fairly new blogger, so I was glad to learn that I'm not the only one that has some trouble posting at times!

Jenny said...

I think we're all having trouble posting. It is so frustrating! But, hey, I keep telling myself...you get what you pay for!

What charming designs.

I definitely need to put my feet in the sand! A beach vacation sounds fabulous!

Thanks for a fun link.

And thanks for sharing your talents with us.

A+
