I love the me a it's getting out of Dodge and going to another world.. To sit at the beach with your eyes closed..breeze blowing thur your hair, listening to waves crashing to the laughing and sea gulls singing away.. It's peaceful place indeed :)

I decided our bedroom and bathroom needed an update.. We colored it a calm, peaceful, happy beachy blue. The work in the bathroom is still a work in tiles for the floor etc..So, instead I decorated..( alittle impatient..LOL.. this is where I become one of the kids.. lol) Mind you the only thing I needed to purchase was the 2 frames which I found at the Dollar Store and I did enlarge photos that my daughter took. Otherwise, I had everything else on hand..I'm a big shell nut..So, each year the kiddos and I go on excursions at the beach and find lots of neat and interesting shells :)

The saying I found while blogging.. ( "If you want to know how much i love you count the waves")I can't remember where I found it.. If I come across it again I will let you know.. All, I did there was paint the saying on an old frame. The 2 dollar store frames I repainted and put in 2 Scallops shells that were a found on one of our excursions.

The budding photographer in our family (Ms. Maddie).. snapped these photos..her Great Grandma Mary would be so happy to see someone following in her footstep :)

In our bedroom I put up an old shelf and painted it and gave it a new life..Then took photos of the girls at the beach a few years back and framed them..And continued to decorate with all the fancy shells we collected over the years.

So, that's it for now.. Lots more to do and lots more open spaces on the walls to fill with great beachy goodies. I'll keep you updated as the progress continues :)

Hi there - I love your sign and was hoping to find out more details on how you did it. Do you mind sharing specifics? I have zero artistic abilities so I'm hoping it's not as hard as it looks!

Thanks ahead of time...
