Busy Summer!

It's been a really busy summer thanks to all our customers. Andrew and I would like to send out a BIG "Thank You" to everyone who has supported our Etsy shop, Facebook and our blog! We are so happy that you like our shop and continue to come back.

Not sure if you saw us on the front page recently, so I wanted to share this with you. One of our vintage sea life bottles was recently on the front page. And it didn't stay around very long. It was such a lovely bottle I almost hated selling it. I was definitely sad to see it go. I know it has a lovely spot in its new home in Washington state. You can see the bottle in the photo below in all its glory on the front page. It was a vintage aqua glass ink well.

I also wanted to share with you a couple other new items that I think you might like to check out. Take a look at this beautiful vintage solid brass scallop shell planter!

And below is a beautiful floating candle holder made from jingle shells that we picked up off the beaches in North Carolina. Jingle shells are usually white, goldish and dark gray. They look like shiny coins on the beach. And they are often referred to as "mermaid toenails." But they reflect light so well and look beautiful by candle light!

And we have a new mermaid for the mermaid lovers. She is the perfect soap dish and would also make a great business card holder or ring and jewelry holder. There are so many ways to display her.

The last photo I want to share with you is something new we are making, when we can find driftwood. It's a driftwood votive holder. A friend recently gave us this piece of driftwood and after Andrew drilled into it, we realized it was cedar. It smells so good! We hope to have more of these in our shop this fall. But if you are possibly interested in purchasing one of these, let us know and we will put you on our waiting list.

Thanks again and be sure to stop by tomorrow! I'm going to share with you photos and video of our special shelling spot in North Carolina, reachable only by boat!
