Beach Dreams

I love the sea and it is my dream to one day have a little cottage near the sea. A place to walk along the sand, collect shells and listen to the waves roll ashore. So until the day that I do have that little cottage by the sea, whenever I find something that reminds me of a coastal cottage, I put it aside for the future. Like this sweet painting of a seaside village.

And a nautical lamp I found at a thrift store and painted white.

And a few shells that Bentley and I collected on our last trip to the Oregon Coast. I'm linking up with Marty for Table Top Tuesday and Linda's Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays.

Bentley, come sit in my lap and we will look at photos from our last trip to the coast!

Susan and Bentley

  5. Hey Susan! I am a huge fan of all things coastal as you know - when that little beachy cottage comes your way, it'll be a good reason to have another blog because you know we'll all want to see what you did inside! :o) xoxo, SJ
