Friday Favs...a little beach cottage love


I seem to be having a little hankering for the little cottage by the sea that only exists in my dreams.


So, while I sipped my morning coffee today,  I took a few minutes to add some beach cottage touches to my home, eighty miles inland from the Pacific Ocean.


If I did, in actuality, live in a cottage by the sea,  I would then be 80 miles away from my grandkids.
But, since this life exists only in my imagination, my children all live in cottages by the sea as well,
and I spend my days exploring tide pools and collecting shells with the grandkids.
And we all live happily ever after.





It's almost Friday, friends!
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
and
a SAFE and BLESSED weekend!

  2. And my cute, little beach house is near yours. I think we walk along the shore together and chat about the tide and the waves! I love what you've done with your 'beach' home. I haven't brought out my beach things yet. Too busy working on my little, vintage trailer right now!

  4. At least you have the beach in your cottage! In my imagination my whole family also lives on the beach enjoying it's many faceted pleasures every single day. ;)

    1. I think the love of the sea is in my DNA from my mama, who was born on PEI, then raised near the coast of Maine.

  5. Hey Elizabeth ... I needed a little encouragement and motivation to change up my mantel. Thanks for bringing the ocean right to my screen this morning.

    For it is my favorite place. And I can't wait to get back again ...

    Sabbath rest to you, to yours!

  6. Good morning, Elizabeth, I hope you and your hubby are enjoying your date day today--maybe by the ocean!? I want to ask you about that cute , rope-covered jar on your mantel. Did you make that, or buy it? It's super-cute.
    Blessings!

    1. We did have a great date day, not by the sea, but here in town. The weather was lovely and we tried out a new restaurant. The little jar was purchased, I think at Ross.
