New at Angels-n-Everlastings

One of my newer listings at Angelsneverlastings.etsy.com is the beach scene diorama.  I really enjoy putting these together.  Each one is unique.

I enjoy painting the background as I find it more creative than putting wreaths together.  I carefully go though my beach findings to choose just the right seashells or driftwood to finish each one.  A sawtooth hanger can be added to the back if you would prefer to hang rather than display on a tabletop.

Here's a new wreath just listed today.

It has eucalyptus, seashells, dried roses and deep blue larkspur.  Here is the link: https://www.etsy.com/listing/160918420/seashell-wreath-spanish-moss-covered?ref=shop_home_active

A sheer ribbon bow surrounded by dried roses and seashells creates a soft focal point.

I love to walk the beach early in the morning, many mornings I take some photos as the sun rises.
Here's one from a recent morning.

On a recent morning, I found some interesting driftwood pieces.  What did I do with them?

Here are some Christmas tree ornaments or small wall hangings, made from the driftwood, seashells, moss and sea glass:

This one is a larger wall hanging with seashells, sea glass and green moss.  It measures 17 inches long.  Watch for the driftwood pieces to be added soon to my Etsy shop.

Dried Roses Part II

Here are the photos of the dried roses that I hung to dry a few weeks ago.  Click here for my first post about how to dry roses.  Here are the photos once dried:
They dried really well and as you can see the pink color went from a pale pink to a more vibrant deep pink.
 I used some of these dried roses for the heart wreath DIY guest blog post at Savvy Deets Bridal.  Click on the link to check out my grapevine heart wreath tutorial and find all sorts of bridal inspiration at Savvy Deets Bridal.  Here's a picture of the wreath and the link to my Angels n Everlastings Etsy Shop:

Beach Finds This Week

This week I found a mixed bag of stuff on the beach.  Here is someone doing some fishing off of Revere Beach.  It was somewhat of a grey morning.  If you look closely you can see a lighthouse off in the distance.  I collected some seashells along with some driftwood and one pine cone.  
I'm not sure what I will do with the pine cone or the driftwood but I will use the seashells for beach home decor for my Angels n Everlastings Etsy shop.  Click here for one of my newer listings: Decoupage Wooden Plaque with Hymnal Music and Seashells
