Ballerina 4th Birthday party

Sunday, August 13, 2017


My granddaughter's 4th birthday.
The cake & cupcake toppers are from Memory Keepsake Party on etsy.
Ballerina sweetness indeed.

I made a long ruffle with crepe paper (top) and hot glued the streamers on the back.
It made a "curtain" that was easy to hang.

Today's project.
My husband has a scrap metal company & he gets all kinds of things.
This rusty old beach cruiser is now a crazy pink planter
in my garden.

Happy mail

Monday, April 24, 2017

Don't you just love getting packages in the mail?
Today I had two special treats.....

I just love it...I included a link to her shop, so go check it out.
Love how she re-purposes vintage jewelry pieces.


My friend Mary, in Cape May, NJ, knows I collect all things "Vintage Deer"
Isn't this vintage hankie seriously sweet & "dear"?...and a little card too!!
Love it Mary, you made my day...love you too.

Thank you for stopping by to see today's "Happy Mail"

Ocean Grove Giant Craft Show

Friday, March 24, 2017


Warm weather coming ...that means it is time to schedule some craft markets.
I will be in Historical Ocean Grove, New Jersey, June 17, 2017
for the annual Giant Craft Show.


I am working on my show inventory now and in addition
to all the "Beachy & Dreamy" handmade goods I am bringing this year,
I have to add some "Vintagy"girl inspiration.
This is a tote I just finished. It has some old lace & vintage jewelry too.
I'll keep you updated with new items as I get them ready!

Ocean Grove, down by the beach, it is such a great venue..
Hope to see you there!

Decorating my Granddaughter's room

Sunday, December 18, 2016


Today was a little decorating for my Granddaughter.
I purchased this amazing letter "A" from  Ashley at 48HourMonogram on Etsy. 
Link added if you would like to check them out..
also for my blog followers... use coupon code BEACH at checkout to save 15%
Thank you Ashley!

Painted it with Annie Sloan's Paris Grey chalk paint.
I am so happy with how it turned out.


These precious little pink house shadow boxes came from Target.
The garland is from SheepFarmFelt on Etsy. (link attached)
Located here in New Jersey, these garlands are the sweetest ever!


Such a sweet space for a sweet little girl.
