Shells and Such...

Even though none of us sisters actually have
a "waterside cottage"...




we still do what we can to create that
atmosphere...




Shells....






Shells....







and more shells...




bring a bit of the sea...





into all our "cottages".




And other "wishful whimsies" too!





























Be sure to join Barbara Jacksier for WATERSIDE WEDNESDAYS ...




and stop by FADED CHARM COTTAGE for WHITE WEDNESDAYS !

  6. Wonderful! We moved to the oceanside over 10 years ago, and I decorated our new home just like this! As time went on I decided to change my decor, but these photos make me want to go back! (:

  10. I enjoyed looking at your lovely seaside vignettes. Having moves from Huntington Beach after 40+ years, I am trying to add a little beach to my little house in the country.
    I am working on that great planter glass topped table!

  16. All your pictures always make me feel warm and cozy, like I'm actually at the Ocean (where I long to be). Being a water girl myself, you bring out the awe and wonder that can be created from the sea's bounty. I thank you. xxoo
