“One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach.” ~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh . . . . . . . "But one can certainly try." ~ Me

I am in the process of catching my breath.  Two grandchildren return home tomorrow and we expect another on Monday.  We have all been shell-seeking for the past few days - one of my happiest endeavors, and the grandchildren have loved every minute of it.  Fortunately, there is a beach nearby with an abundance of shells to choose from.

While I catch my breath, I am beginning to think about our return to the north in the not too distant future.  I have begun to plug things into my Google Calendar for March (my color is pink and Bruce's is blue - go figure!).   Book Club is scheduled, Birthday Girl's outing is scheduled, knitting gatherings - and - a dentist appointment.  I have not had any pink - (save, for my parent's visit) - in January or February - quite amazing as I glance back through the previous year.

One of my goals upon our return is to open my Etsy shop - actually, it has been a goal for a bit, but it kept getting put off as the holidays approached - and then we left.  So - I have been visiting Esty in my spare time (very spare of late) in order to reacquaint myself with its structure and policies.

Since I love anything and everything to do with the sea, I chose that as the key word for my Etsy search.  Just a peruse actually - not looking for anything in particular - just "aquatic inspiration", and I did not fall short!  Below is just a sampling of the wonderful things that I came across - enjoy!

If you have not looked into Etsy for your shopping needs - give it a whirl - you won't be disappointed!


  1. They sell the cutest babies on Etsy ;-P
    LOL, congrats on opening your shop again!! Look all those amazing shells. This is a fav activity for us too. I cannot wait for it to warm up a bit, so we can go. We really love finding sea glass. Clarice

  2. Look at all those shells - it's a good thing you don't have to mail them home. I used to collect sand dollars with my grandfather, and when I turned twelve my grandparents gave me a pewter sand dollar pendant. I cherish it to this day.
    Love the Etsy finds - not sure which is my favorite - the baby or the silk?!
