{Coastal Cottage} Favorite Five Finds

We're back for another Favorite Five Finds to start your week, but first we need to thank Mary of Boogieboard Cottage as well as Courtney of French Country Cottage for featuring our Cottage Chic China Cabinet re-do as one of their favorite picks from last week. We're very honored and encourage you to check out their fabulous blogs.

We enjoyed a quiet weekend and spent some time designing a cover for our back deck; which we are hoping to work on in the near future. I'm excited to get working on it so I can decorate it!! I really want some charming hanging candles or lanterns to start with. I can get through any tough physical job if I know I get to decorate it all pretty when we're done plus working with power tools is always so much fun! Oops, I'm daydreaming about decorating so I better get back to business now :O)

We discovered some beautiful Coastal Cottage decor items that are new and unique for your enjoyment this week. All of them are hand made; which makes them extra special. Handmade creations really add a special feel to your beach cottage and there is just something about knowing the pieces in your cottage aren't mass produced. Have a lovely day and we hope you like these adorable Coastal Cottage Finds...

ONE: Beach Art for your Coastal Home ~ Just think of this gorgeous shell art piece gracing a small space in your coastal cottage! Genuine white starfish, framed between two pieces of glass. Shown in distressed ivory frame - also available in distressed white.

TWO:  Beach Cottage Swag Lamp ~ This "Beachy Keen" Driftwood swag lamp is the cat's meow in any room.  The lamp is made with 42 pieces of driftwood that have been painted white. The driftwood pieces are wire wrapped and a shell, glass marble, or prism is attached at the bottom of each wire. Three pencil starfish complete the lamp.
