{Sail Away} Favorite Five Finds

Happy Sunday, wonderful beach friends! 

We've had beautiful weather this weekend so we've been spending lots of time enjoying the sunshine and doing some much needed yard work. It's funny how when the weather is nice that mowing and weeding doesn't feel as much like "work."

What's coming up on our site this week? Our latest painting project will be revealed (this time it's furniture) and keep a look out for an appearance of "the" pink cupcake boots, which many of you have been asking about!  

Today's "Sail Away" theme is inspired by one of my all-time favorite quotes by Mark Twain ~ we hope you enjoy this week's unique and fun finds...

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. 
So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. 
Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

ONE: "S" is for Sailing. Hand carved and hand painted in New England. This delightful sign is made from Northern Pine and wording can even be customized for you. What a perfect addition to your beach cottage!

TWO: The Captain was designed to carry anything and everything all in one trip. This smart, stylish carrier features Velcro closure on its handles, a pleated body, and the ability to hold all the beach gear you need. Each carrier is individually hand sewn and signed by the artist in the USA.

THREE: Get seaside style wherever you live with this quality handmade pillow filled with faux down. It's big, soft and squeezable, a quick and easy way to add to or change your decor style for den, family room, beach house, patio or deck.  Sailing vessels of all sizes and styles glide across a background of oyster and pale beige on this beautiful Robert Kaufman fabric.

Three adorable heart shaped buttons detail the bust and an invisible is the closure on the back. Dress is lined through the bodice and each is custom made for you.
