Favorites of the Week - Sand and Sea Beach House Musings

I took a different approach with my Thursday Favorites of the Week today. I decided to use Kaboodle to pull together a styleboard of my Etsy favorites instead of using the Etsy favorites tag. These are still tagged as favorite items on Etsy and will appear on my Favorites of the Week page until next Thursday. I enjoy using Kaboodle and if you haven't kaboodled yet, I highly recommend it.  I only had time for one styleboard today but I do have a group of vintage favorites on my Favorites of the Week page and hope you will visit that page and check them out as well.

SAND AND SEA - BEACH HOUSE MUSINGS
 (Note: These items can also be viewed indefinitely in my Treasury on Etsy)
Beautiful handmade items that are perfect for that beach house by the sea.  Cool, soothing and peaceful come to mind. Everything you need to start furnishing your own lovely cottage wherever it may be:
A bit of tatted lace to add to your own lovely craft project.
A delightful folk art owl that would look so great perched on a sofa table behind a Pottery Barn upholstered sofa.
This beautiful wreath made of vintage paper to greet the those lucky beach house guests. 
Feeling inspired by the sea coast scenes? Keep your pencils and paint brushes handy in this almost-too- beautiful-for-pencils, pottery pencil holder. 
Who wants to heat up the oven? All you'll need for those light meals of chilled soup, fresh fruit or salad are these gorgeous, sky blue bowls. 
This beautiful photograph of a seashell resting on a paper displaying its proper scientific name will be a perfect conversation piece.
While you're decorating the walls, don't forget this delightful set of four drawings of digitally painted sea creatures. A lovely, touch of whimsy.
Gorgeous fabrics and throw pillows help to complete your casual yet sophisticated decor. 
Last but not least....What is a beach house filled with beautiful treasures without some adornments for your sun kissed skin and hair? These jewelry selections will be perfect with a sun-dress or tank top and capris.
For the final touch, sling this roomy bag over your shoulder and your ready to stroll to town looking like the island beauty that you are!
I hope you like these favorites that I picked especially for you. The do make me think beach house but why not use them to bring that beach feel to your cozy nest wherever it may be?
To purchase or find out more about any of these items, simply go to my Favorites of the Week page and click on the item. It will take you to that item in its little shop on Etsy.

Please, please, please don't forget to check out the great vintage treasures on my Favorites of the Week page.  You can see a treasury of those Beach Ball Bright favorites here.

Okay, bye now...Hope you will drop by again tomorrow for Fingerprint Friday!
