Beach Decor Redux






Surf’s Up

The latest Pacific storm is supposed to show up in my neighborhood tomorrow or Friday.  It makes for some great waves today.  Warm temperatures and beautiful clear sunsets to enjoy for the moment.pc050007.jpg


More beach decor

home_wreath_seashell.jpgHere are some more beachy decor pictures I have saved.  For those of you turning on the heat, raking leaves, and getting ready for snow, these pictures should warm you up just a bit.   A touch of the beach works anywhere.  The clean blues, creams, whites, and natural elements always refresh my soul.

Here is a favorite ocean quote as an added gift…

“Sponges grow in the ocean.  That just kills me.  I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be if that didn’t happen.”  Steven Wright







My Favorite Poem about the Ocean

maggie and milly and molly and may.
went down to the beach (to play one day)
and maggie discovered a shell that sang so sweetly
she couldn’t remember her troubles,
and milly befriended a stranded star
whose rays five languid fingers were;
and molly was chased by a horrible thing
which raced sideways while blowing bubbles:
and may came home with a smooth round stone
as small as a world and as large as alone
for whatever we lose (like a you or a me)
it’s always ourselves we find in the sea
e e cummings
