~~ Come with me to two of my favorite destinations
for some virtual retail therapy ~~
on the inner coast of Cape Cod
~~ treasures of the sea in every nook ~~
(look at those picture frames with tiny shells!)
And in case you were thinking beach house decor was all blue, white and boring gray, look at these colors!
In the bright seaside light bright colors work very well.
Do you see anything you like here? I’ll fill my virtual shopping cart with the painting of the daffodil and the mosaic mirror for my guest room.
The needlepoint rug would be nice to step onto out of the shower. And the shell encrusted planter needs to come to my house where I will fill it with beach roses.
Birdhouses like this one with the tin roof are so hard to resist! And that blue rattan chair calls my name when I walk in.
Speaking of blue ~~ armoire ~~ ooh ~~ sigh ~~
Or maybe the gorgeous birdcage.
I have been trying to convince myself that I have space for it. It is huge.
It won’t fit in the car but since we are just pretending, I’ll take it.
I always look at this lamp. Oysters shells~~ how cool is that?
But maybe the most beautiful item in the shop is this swan ~~ hand carved from a single piece of wood. I love swans, but I’ll have to win the lottery to really take this one home. It is truly breathtaking. Maybe the swan print will be in our budget, or the pewter scallop shell sculpture. Both would be welcome in my house!
If you’re in the mood for more fun, we can travel down the Cape.
Mermaids on Main
on the elbow of Cape Cod
We can pretend that we’re lovely mermaids ~~
~~ drink nectar from mugs in this gorgeous color ~~
~~ or relax with bath salts and candles ~~
~~ and rest our mermaid tresses on chenille pillows.
~~ We can adorn ourselves with pretty trinkets ~~
~~ and add to our collections of shorebirds (I have one, and you will too when you see them … 🙂 ) ~~
Did anything go into your virtual shopping cart?
Now the beach is calling me.
Would you like a postcard from this lovely spot?
I love sending postcards and if you would like one, let me know in the comments ~~ but email your address to me ~~ firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope you are staying cool!
