By the Sea, By the Beautiful Sea

I am down at the beach enjoying a few days to myself while my DH has gone further south for a meeting...The weather is warm and beautiful with a slight breeze blowing at times....The tides coming in and I see lots of white waves as the palms wave slowly in the slight wind that is blowing......It's so relaxing.....walks on the beach......sand in your toes....... reading good books....sitting on the screen porch knitting and spinning watching the water come forward and then receed as if it's teasing you...thank you God for all the beauty you created for us to enjoy..... Below are some of my SEA TREASURES .......some I created and some I bought.....

 A wreath I covered with Seashells

  1. Hello ... I noticed this afternoon that you had visited and followed my Little Birds blog. Thank you so much. I truly appreciate it when people take the time to stop by. Your blog is so beautiful. Your photos just draw me in. I must say your knitted garments are amazing. I can almost feel the softness. And I love the colors. I look forward to getting to know you better .... Hugs, Frances

  2. Gift From The Sea is one of my favourite books. There is nothing like the rhythm of the waves to create an inner calm, I envy you. Now on to the amazing things you have done with sea treasures. My goodness they are beautiful, can this be the same woman who thought she might not have anything to share :-) So glad you've shared your creative treasures with us.

  3. Thank you for your lovely comment today. Your cat Simon is adorable! Your knitting looks very professional - I look forward to checking out your whole blog.

  4. Being near the sea is lovely, and I think the touches you've brought in are wonderful. I love the wreath!

  5. Oh, you were so close to me yesterday!! A day by the sea - isn't it the best? I will never get tired of walking by the ocean or just sitting and staring out at it. There is something magical about it, renewing. I feel an instant calm and gain a greater perspective. Your sea creations are wonderful!! Love, Silke

  6. The sea calls to all of us. Thanks for sharing all of your lovely creations! Enjoy the moments!

  7. Love all the pieces you've made. I also love the sea!! Enjoy your time!!

  8. Oh my goodness how I love your stained glass window!!!! I so wish I could do that. Beautiful!!!
    I want to pick up that book sometime and read it. Wish I could read it by the sea!!!

    Thank you so much for your comment on my blog yesterday. It made my heart so happy to know that God used what he is talking to me about to talk to you too. Thanks so much for sharing that with me.

  9. Hi - Thanks for stopping by my blog. You are a serious knitter - beautiful pieces. Did you know your comment came to my blog as a "no-reply" comment?

  10. Oh I hope you are having a wonderful relaxing time. I love the sound and sight of waves.

    Love your wonderful beach and shell decorations. Especially love the table and chandelier - beautiful!

    You asked about my dots :) Though I liked them, it was getting a little too busy for me, and I really like how my photos are looking on the black. I am quite sure I will change it again at some point!! :)


  11. Hi- I am receiving your message in my email but your return email doesn't show it only says "no-reply". Check the settings on your blog.

  12. thank you for the kind words on my blog.
    I love all your wonderful "sea" treasures! I also adore the water (my Grandparents were from Scotland and ancestors all fishermen) but since the ocean isn't here in Michigan I settle for the Great Lakes which are just as beautiful!
    Have a wonderful Monday!

  13. Hi - the quilted art leaf bowls are for sale - $12 each. They are approx. 6 inches X 9 inches and are great to hold small treasures. Emailing me would give me your address. Thanks.

  14. Hey girl. Love it. You have me anxious to dress up my blog a bit. So pretty. your beach place is beautiful. did you do all that shell work? You are truly amazing girl. We enjoyed our time at the beach also. I sat in amazement at God's handiwork. So nice to just sit and read, nap, dig my toes into the sand and enjoy His song as the waves crashing in. When will you be back? Sandra
