The Seashore....

If you don't know me, perhaps by now you have figured out that I love the sea. My boutique, my blog and much of my inspiration revolves around the sea.

I spent most of my childhood vacationing there. My earliest and fondest memories begin with the sea. I don't know if it's inherited, just in my bones or I'm a misplaced Mermaid. LOL My sweet Daddy was a Sailor. He loved the ocean. We spent many a day there just wallowing in the sounds, smells and warmth of the sea. The sea calms me. We live at the shore and I couldn't imagine ever living further than 10 minutes from the ocean.

I love this graphic. It's a beauteous lady sitting on a windy shore. Two of my favorites...vintage and the sea.

With that I leave you with one of my favorite poems:

There's a lovely cottage by the sea
where the Water Lillys strew the shore...
It was there I passed my happy childhood
with a loved one that's gone before.

Roselle, I love the sea too. I grew up vacationing at the Jersey Shore, now I take my girls there. We love it, look forward to it and can't imagine a summer without it.

Roselle, lovely blog. I love the sea as well. Dream of being able to live there one day. Meanwhile, an annual pilgrimage will have to do.
