Favorites from my Beach Decor Pinterest board

Here are a few of my favorite pins on my Beach Decor Pinterest Board.
I recently spend a few days at Rockport, Ma. It is one of my favorite beach spots and fortunately it is close to where I live. Each year my mom and my sisters get together and we stay at The Captains Bounty. It is right on the Atlantic Ocean at Front Beach. Each morning my sisters and I searched the beach for unique finds to use for my Angels n Everlastings shop. It was creations like this driftwood mirror from that inspired me to bring home a big bag of driftwood this year.

Here is a color pallette from I found recently on pinterest.

I like it because it is different than the aqua beach palettes that are so common. The green is outstanding and so true to life. Check out this photo

I took while at Rockport showing the same green tone.

Here is one more pinterest find from I love the neutral tones here! These tiles are by Wet Dog Tile Co located in Alstead, New Hampshire. Visit their web site here.

Well, these are just a few pins from my beach home decor pinterest. Check out the rest at Kindly leave a comment or share your favorite beach finds.

Castteam Themed Treasury Event Winners

The Castteam on Etsy had their first themed treasury event this month. The theme for September was Autumn or Fall. There were many good treasuries that were posted in the event thread. You can view them here if you'd like.  The first one I will share was the one with the most views called The Color of Autumn. It had 182 views this morning and 100 admirers.

Beach Finds at Rockport, MA

I spent a few days recently at Rockport, MA.  I have some beach photos to share later but here is a quick post of seashells and sea glass finds on the beach. 
 My family helped me collect bits of sea glass and seashells along the beach in Rockport, Ma.  You can find bits of sea glass and if you look carefully you can also find rarer little bits of sea pottery.

Check out the pottery piece with the imprint in the photo above.  Below there are a few deep cobalt blue pieces which were rarer and if you look closely a small piece of beach pottery with a blue imprint.  
I am going to use some of these for myself but I will be using some of these finds in creations for my Angels n Everlastings Etsy shop
