Beach Lover's Giveaway!

We're approaching mid summer and lots of families are spending their summer vacations at the beach. The ocean is warm and the sand is hot and the only thing cooling us off is that wonderful ocean breeze. Don't you just love this time of year? Whether you're on the beach on in the house by the A/c, we want to hear about your summer. Have you visited an amazing beach or done something fun and exciting this summer? I know I have and there is more to come.

SUMMER GIVEAWAY

We invite you and your friends to join our summer giveaway! The winner will receive one of our aqua blue whelk seashell air plants and an adorable cast iron mermaid (pictured below). We found the whelk seashells on the beaches of North Carolina. We specifically love the ones that are broken. They are perfect for air plants. We have a selection of air plants and holders in our Etsy shop.

Just found this site via Completely Coastal. My vacation is spent in the Midwest, so I'm living vicariously through these beautiful pictures!

Will be spending summer at home this year (lots of floating in the pool), but hoping some beach days are in the near future!

Finally being able to wear summer clothing!! Living in the Rocky mountains and dreaming of living on a beach, I look forward to the warmer weather and no snow!!

Great blog! I found this through Completely Coastal. I am looking forward to 11 days in Southern California starting next week, including a short road trip up to Yosemite! So excited! I am a teacher, so I look forward to my summer vacation just as much as the kids do :)

No vacation, as yet. Hope to get to the Gulf coast sometime late August or early September. The beach is calling to me.....come....come - rest, relax, rejuvenate, reconnect, recollect - the beach soothes my soul.........

Dana said...

Thanks for sharing this with us!!!! Im looking now for ideas to do with my small pieces of driftwood that I gathered at Nags Head.Thinking of a chime with shells ! :)

I love this giveaway. We live near the beach, and we spend a lot of time there.

This summer we bought a new camera, and I'm experimenting taking pictures at the beach - really fun.

Also, we went on a gondola ride on the water. Beautiful!

Thank you!

Great blog & giveaway! I love your shop, also! This summer I've been teaching ceramics to children at a summer camp. The best way to spend the summer if you ask me!

Great give away. Last week was vacation week. My husband and I scheduled ourselves to work around our house. Much to my surprise we took the week off from all work instead. We golfed, lounged around the pool and enjoyed the company of friends and family. Wonderful week together!

LeeAnn said...

These would look great in my new beach themed guest bedroom!
We went to Disney World in May and we are going to Michigan City in September. We can't wait to stay at a lake house and just enjoy the beach!

I liked you on facebook!

Terri Weston said...

Fan of your FB page, I would be going to the Emerald cast of FL if I could take a vacation this year, I have to be content with looking at photo's of the sea and beaches and put a light house, sailboat, sand dollar shell on my mantle to have a beachy feel, I am landlocked due to knee op, see my blog post about it here Here link

Kaleena Cote said...

...I found your blog through your Etsy page after I recently purchased your BEAUTIFUL three-votive driftwood candleholder as a wedding gift for friends. I haven't been able to take a summer vacation yet because of work, but a lot of friends and family have been vacationing at our house! :) (We live on the Connecticut shoreline near a few gorgeous beaches.) Please pick me! Pick me! I'd love an air plant for the window. Now I'm headed off to "Like" you on Facebook. Thanks and happy driftwooding and seashelling at the beach!

Cindy said...

My summer is spent living by the beach in North Carolina. The real fun is spending the summer patroling the beach looking for turtle nests so we can move them if need be, mark them, tape them off, and make sure they are safe. When the time comes we then "sit the nests" nightly to watch for the eggs to hatch and make sure all the baby turtles get safely into the ocean.

Thanks for this lovely giveaway! I'm on the western coast of India and while summer is officially over for the moment, this year was filled with fun memories. We took our two-year old son to the beach frequently and he loved every moment. He walks into the water as if he is Moses! The pail and spade now get used at bath-time and the shells we collected are decorating the bathroom.

Living a block from the beach on central Florida's east coast we feel as if we are on vacation every day of the year. We enjoy beautiful weather year round so we ride bikes and walk on the beach daily.

Megan said...

I "liked" you on Facebook. Now I can keep up to date with all the Beautiful Details by the Seashore.

This summer I am a college graduate and I've made a big move to Bermuda where I'll be spending my first summer away doing activities from boating to snorkeling, rock jumping to dancing on beaches and bbq's to nights in town exploring! Even though I'll be working very had soon my summer never stops here in Bermuda :)

SeaShellsbySeaShore said...

We have been visiting a remote area down Padre Island National Seashore. Locals call it Little Shell. The shoreline is covered with the most fabulous small shell mix. There are many sand dollars and larger shells as well. On one trip alone we collected over 50 sand dollars and tons of other treasures. The best part of it all is you rarely even see another person that far down. It's like your own private piece of heaven.

awesome giveaway!... I love your aqua items... I have been slowly refurbing the sunroom off my bedroom with flea market and yard sale DIY aqua painting projects from frames to mirrors and more. BOTH these items would go perfectly!.. No vacation for me. not well enough to go anywhere right now. But I live in south, so am blessed year round! Would be nice tho to have a week to pamper myself and get to a spa and beach resort!
